It’s hard to believe that something so deliciously addictive and moreish as chocolate could be good for you.
But some studies suggest that chocolate’s antioxidants — which are especially prevalent in the darker varieties — could work to:
– Reduce blood pressure.
– Improve circulation.
– Lower the risk of diabetes, stroke, and heart attack.
For the best results, experts advise selecting dark chocolate with a 65% or higher cocoa content…and restricting yourself to 3 ounces or less per day to avoid unwanted weight gain.
It turns out that sex can be good for you in more ways than simply the pleasure of the moment.
A healthy sex life may also:
– Reduce stress
– Burn calories
– Improve circulation
