I finally narrowed down my Christmas gift to a few choices, among others is gourmet chocolate from Cafe Britt, Cocoa lover gift box and Gourmet chocolate sampler. As far as chocoholics, myself included, are concerned, there's simply no reason to refuse chocolates. I can still remember receiving chocolate gift from friends during Christmas and tucking into chocolates during my teens time when there wasn’t just enough pocket money to lavish myself with decent gourmet items. Though chocolate was rationed since it was associated with obesity, tooth decay, among others, not many aware of health benefits of dark chocolate for keeping your heart and cardiovascular system running well. Dark chocolate contains a large number of antioxidants which protect the body from aging caused by free radicals, which can cause damage that leads to heart disease. Studies have shown that consuming a small bar of dark chocolate everyday can reduce blood pressure in individuals with high blood pressure. Besides, dark chocolate has also been shown to reduce LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) by up to 10 percent. Therein, I think it would be a pleasure to delight families and friends with some decadent health food as a gift during this coming Christmas, especially for those with sweet tooth.
