There are few things in this world more divine than chocolate, except for chocolate-covered hazelnuts, of course!
Let’s break it down. Chocolate is amazing. Hazelnuts are amazing. Combined? They make an incredible masterpiece of deliciousness! But it’s more than being delicious; chocolate has some excellent benefits! In fact, chocolate and hazelnuts share a lot of the same incredible health benefits.
So let’s dive in so you can see how great chocolate covered hazelnuts genuinely are!
Benefits of Chocolate
In moderation, chocolate has several health benefits. A few of the most notable perks include being antioxidant-rich, energy-boosting, and, believe it or not, heart-healthy.
Antioxidants play a critical role in keeping the body healthy. They fight off free radicals in the body. These free radicals are produced by pollution caused by things like tobacco smoke or when your body breaks down foods.
Chocolate is a potent source of antioxidants. Some studies show that chocolate has more antioxidants than some fruits!
Chocolate contains theobromine, which provides a boost of energy. The darker the chocolate, the more of an energy boost you’ll get. The theobromine found in chocolate acts like caffeine but is much gentler on the body and is responsible for the signature bitter taste dark chocolate has.
That’s right. Chocolate is heart-healthy! Studies have shown that the effects of chocolate may lower blood pressure and improve blood flow.
Chocolate has also been shown to reduce oxidized LDL cholesterol (this is the bad cholesterol level). Antioxidants play a part here because they protect against oxidative damage (“anti” meaning against or opposite).
