1) It Makes YOU happy!
Think about the last time you ate a piece of chocolate. Did it make you happy? The chances are that it did. Chocolate makes people happy because it tastes good and provides moments of indulgence away from busy, and often stressed-out, lives. However, we usually feel guilty of the enormous calorie intake we just gulped in, so dark chocolate helps you with that, it has less calories and still gives you that same euphoria!
After lots of research, it is proven that dark chocolate is the chocolate that makes us truly happy! This is because it has more cocoa, and as cocoa increases, it makes you healthier and happier.
2) It is loaded with nutrients!
Quality Dark Chocolate (70%+ cocoa) is loaded with soluble fiber, minerals and antioxidants.
3) It boosts alertness and attention!
The true explanation for why chocolate makes people alert is chemical in nature. There are over 300 naturally occurring chemicals in chocolate, and some of them can affect the human brain with the release of particular neurotransmitters that can be responsible for your emotions and the way you feel. One of these is phenylethlyamine, which causes alertness and a degree of excitement, quickens the pulse rate, and makes you happy. Phenylethylamine is sometimes called “the love drug”, because it arouses feelings similar to those that occur when one is in love. How awesome is that!
4) Dark chocolate is widely AVAILABLE in Cairo!
A while back, dark chocolate was not easily accessible, but it is now, you can find it in so many places including Metro, Carrefour and even online stores such as Beqala, Gourmet and many more! Enjoy some dark chocolates and INDULGE!
