Dark Chocolate act as anti-depressant

▴ Dark Chocolate
According to nutritionists, a chocolate a day keeps doctor away.

Many people seem to think of chocolates as a reservoir of sugar and fat, and therefore avoid indulging in. They are happy with a bite or two but never have them on a regular basis or make them a part of their daily diet. New age nutritionists and dieticians, however are of a different opinion.

According to them, having chocolate once a day gives you lot of health benefits including good sleep and fighting against depression. Chocolate helps increase serotonin hormone in the body and helps you have a sound sleep at night. Serotonin hormone helps in regulating our sleep cycle.

Moreover, chocolate has anti-depressant properties. According to researchers at University College London people who eat dark chocolate are less likely to be depressed. The team looked at data from 13,626 adults who ate chocolate and had depressive symptoms. The analysis of the data revealed that participants who reported eating dark chocolate in two 24-hour periods had 70% lower odds of reporting depressive symptoms than those who didn’t eat chocolate at all.
