Why Organic Chocolate is AMAZING!

Posted by Tanya Carr on 12/7/2013 to Green Gift of Health
Chocolate is one food that almost everyone loves. It is sweet and it actually provides some health benefits. However, if you want to eat this sweet treat without the guilt, try an organic chocolate. The benefits are high and it tastes good as well!
Reduces Colon Cancer
Dark organic chocolate contains what are referred to as cocoa polyphenols. These have been shown to help reduce your risk of colon cancer when consumed regularly. Eating just a small amount of chocolate each day can provide you with these benefits.
Your Weight
Chocolate gets a bad reputation for being bogged down with calories, but organic chocolate is lighter and can actually aid in your weight loss and weight maintenance efforts. This is because it can help to inhibit issues with the blood sugar. The work it does on blood sugar not only helps to prevent obesity, but it can go a long way in helping to prevent Type 2 diabetes too.
Better Mood
Chocolate is the go-to comfort food, but now that boost in mood is actually real. Organic chocolates can increase the production of endorphins and this is due to containing serotonin. In a nutshell, organic chocolate is a natural anti-depressant. If you combine this chocolate with other natural mood enhancers, such as peppermint and citrus fruits, you can greatly improve your overall mood on a daily basis.
Healthy Fats
Not all fats are detrimental to your health. Organic chocolates contain a lot of oleic acid and this is known to not raise cholesterol. It is also helpful in promoting antioxidant activity and preventing heart disease. It can also help your cardiovascular system a little more. When consumed regularly, organic chocolate can help to lower your blood pressure. Having your blood pressure in a safe range works to prevent strokes and heart attacks.

One more thing, we are proud to say is that our organic chocolate is also Fair Trade!
