PMS food

Do you invariably find yourself craving chocolate during that time of the month? You know what? It’s actually good for you! Chocolate is known to release calming endorphins that reduce anxiety. Its high magnesium content plays a huge role in the development of serotonin that stimulates a feeling of happiness in you. You’ll never have dull days when you’re on your period again, ladies.

Controls coughing

Believe it or not, chocolate can actually help your cough. It contains a sweet chemical component called theobromine, which seems to reduce the activity of the vagus nerve which is the part of the brain that brings about coughing fits. Unbelievable but true!

Prevents cancer

Cocoa contains pentameric procyanidin, a compound that has the ability to disrupt cancer cells from spreading. So if you want a healthy life ahead, why not make it an excuse to eat some sinful chocolate provided you’re being realistic and reasonable with your intake.

Improves cardiovascular health

Cocoa contains flavonoids like specifically catechin, epicatechin and procyanidins. These help the cardiovascular system and lower cholesterol, reducing inflammation, and prevent blood clots.
