umm.. really? i dont think so. i only know that chocolate is good for low blood pressure or low sugar levels. chocolate has lots of calories and contribute towards developing fat in the body. and having excess of fat contributes towards heart diseases. my father has a heart condition and he has never been advised to take chocolate =P

Yes....it is good for health. Actually, a little bit of chocolate may be good for you. Dark chocolate has antioxidants that are good for your health. Unfortunately, chocolate treats and candy usually have lots of sugar and fat that may add extra calories you probably don't need. But you only need about 3.5 ounces of dark chocolate each day. There are some interesting chemicals naturally found in chocolate. Xanthine, which is like caffeine, can make a person feel jittery. Theophylline will stimulate the central nervous system, relax the bronchi in the lungs and your blood vessels. Phenylethylamine (PEA) is similar to amphetamine. PEA reproduces the feeling someone has when he or she falls in love. So maybe chocolate may help soothe a broken heart.
