According to a latest research people who consume chocolate on a regular basis are thinner than those who don’t consume them. There is another research done by the Helena study group. It has a large sample of 1450 European children. And the finding of the research shows that those who consume chocolate have shown low BMI and vice versa. But chocolate in both the researches refers to dark chocolate that should have 60- 70 % cocoa.

The actual thing which contributes to weight gain is the butter, milk and high sugar content of chocolate. Cocoa itself is not harmful, infect it is something very healthy. It contains antioxidants and flavanols both gives body numerous benefits like supporting the cardiovascular system and blood pressure.

Chocolate is helping your body in many ways that you might not even know. It helps to fight the free radicals that are made because of eating junk food, by smoking and thought pollution. So the reduction in these cells helps your body in many ways. It also reduces depression and lightens up the mood. The smell of chocolate also made beta waves in the brain that help the body to relax. Thus, all this discussion shows that one should not cut back on chocolates and eating bags of it will help. No, not at all. Anything can become dangerous for the body if it is not consumed in moderation. Chocolate is good only if you consume a small quantity of it and the chocolate should be dark chocolate. By explaining the benefits of chocolate I actually mean to tell you the benefits of cocoa and not the butter and sugar of regular chocolate bars, cakes and ice-creams.
