HAPPY HOLI

Festivals mean fun, frolic and (good) food and what better than sweets to engage your palate during celebrations. For health’s sake, switch to chocolate…

Sweets and celebrations go hand in hand. And this Holi, switch to chocolate for some guilt-free indulgence, that’s also great for health!

Why chocolate?

  • Keeps you full: Rich in fiber, a snack square of dark chocolate will stave off cravings for sweet, salty and fatty foods.
  • Skin protect: Antioxidants called flavonoids found in dark chocolate can actually offer protection from UV. Does not mean you can skip the SPF!
  • Happy Mood: Endorphins, check. Happy hormone rush, check.
  • Makes you smarter: Cocoa contains flavanols that send blood rushing to your brain, enough to make you feel more awake and alert. Step aside energy drinks, chocolate is here!
  • A healthier heart: Regular chocolate eaters actually love their heart. Chocolate, because of its inflammation-fighting properties, offers a host of benefits for the heart, including lower blood pressure, lower “bad” cholesterol and a lower risk of heart disease.
  • Control sugar: A study has shown that regularly eating smalls amounts of chocolate increases insulin sensitivity, thereby reducing risk for diabetes.
  • Skip the syrup: Coughing fit? Theobromine in chocolate reduces activity of the vagus nerve, the part of the brain that triggers hard-to-shake coughs.
