Why is chocolate necessary in life?
Transcript of Why is chocolate necessary in life?
by Sofia Flores and Mariola Franco
For all the chocolate lovers (just like us) and chocolate haters (this essay will totally change your mind!).
1) “Hellooooo people” life without chocolate is depressing.
Cocoa (what chocolate’s made up of) contains serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, or an element your nerves produce. One of its functions is influencing your mood. Which makes you feel good, live longer, relaxed and happy!
2) Helps decrease the risk of Heart attacks!
In specific, dark chocolate contains lots of antioxidants which help your cardiovascular system prevent heart attacks by reducing blood pressure. A less scientific way of saying this is that, it can help you live longer! According to Authority Nutrition magazine, a study was made recently which required 470 elderly men, and conclusions were that cocoa reduces the risk of heart disease by 50%. Heart, metabolic or cardiovascular diseases hit more or less approximately 70% of all elderly. So instead of eating green stuff every day and stop enjoying food, here’s a simpler way to run away from heart attacks, chocolate!
3) Believe it or not, it helps reduce diabetes!
Flavonoids found in cocoa products (chocolate) have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-clotting effects that can reduce the risk of diabetes by improving insulin sensitivity. So all of you sugar lovers, go ahead and enjoy a chocolate bar now and then, with no stress on the sugar!
4) It’s also nutritious.
Particularly dark chocolate with a high content of cocoa, has good amounts of fiber and minerals which are good for your body. Such as: fiber, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, zinc and selenium. Although it’s filled with nutrients, large amounts of chocolate shouldn’t be consumed EVERY DAY. Chocolate should be eaten moderately because of its calorie amount.
5) Eat to live.
Ever wanted to be immortal? Well now you can try to achieve this goal by eating chocolate. Research at Cambridge University found that people consuming the most chocolate had a 29% lower risk of stroke than those who consumed less chocolate. Let’s get healthy.
6) Part of a delicious diet.
Wonderfully people who eat chocolate on a regular basis are, on average, actually thinner that those who don’t, an American study reported earlier this year. Every girls dream includes the perfect body figure and men are always trying to show off their bodies. What a better way to do this than with chocolate?
7) Chocolate is cool.
Chocolate’s melting point is around 35 degrees Celsius. This is just below the average temperature inside the human body. How much warmer could we be to the truth about life with chocolate?
8) No more running away from cancer.
Spanish researchers studying rodents fed a diet containing 12% cocoa, found that it protected against the development of colon cancer. After all the expensive treatments discussed in a lab, all they had to do was eat a snickers. Protection against cancer is a big concern all around the world today. Spread the news to help save lives.
9) Improves brain function.
It improves verbal fluency, cognitive functions and risks factors for disease. Verbal fluency is the ability to form and express words compatible with required criteria. Cognitive functions can be defined as cerebral activities that leads to reasoning, memory, attention, language and lead directly to the attainment of information and, thus, knowledge.
10) Helps with math.
The flavonoids, part of a group of chemicals called polyphenols, work by increasing the flow of blood into the brain. Wouldn’t any kid like to feel less tired and less slow? I bet you would. Eat some chocolate and be ready and alert for math class. It’s for your future!
