" Cocoa and chocolate products have been delicacies for hundreds of years. Only recently have they been recognized as significant sources of phytochemicals with healthful effects. These foods are among the most concentrated sources of the procyanidin flavonoids, catechin and epicatechin. Recent studies have shown that these polyphenols are absorbed from the intestine of animals and humans with epicatechin absorbed much more than catechin. These flavonoids have potent antioxidant and antiplatelet activities following consumption of cocoa or chocolate. "

There is something about the chocolates, whenever you are sad or your emotions are so down, the chocolates enlightens your aura and makes you so relaxed. Thats why whenever im so down..i run to the cupboards and search for any chocolates. But the thing is, one thing about chocolates, the kids are so hyper and so active whenever they have a bite of chocolates.there is a certain reactions from chocolates to the brain. Even my mother said before, when you go to your examination day bring some chocolates to help you think. IU hope to prove that...but i just dont know how it works...

While there is some suggestion that chocolates make us feel good, I'm sure that the sugar and fat is not good for us. I try and live by the motto, everything in moderation. Sounds like you'd be better off doing some meditation to try and relax.
