Introduction

The primary source of any chocolate is the tree Theobroma cacao ‘Cocoa tree’, which literally means ‘Food of the Gods’. 

This translation truly holds true not just for its taste but also, for the health benefits of chocolate. A diversity of tempting recipes have evolved from chocolate globally, the most appetizing being the chocolate cake recipe.

There is an International Chocolate Day that is celebrated globally (except in the country Latvia) on July 7. The United States celebrates its National Chocolate Day on 28 October. Different countries have their own dates for National Chocolate Day.

Health Benefits of Chocolate

  1. Cocoa, being a plant-based alkaloid, has antibacterial & anti-inflammatory properties. Besides that, it is an antimitotic, an important agent in the manufacturing of anti-cancer drugs. 
  2. It acts as a cough suppressant & is even considered good for dental health. 
  3. Just about 15 grams of chocolate a day can give us enough anti-clotting benefits to reduce the risk of heart attacks or strokes. 
  4. Dark chocolate is a mood elevator as it stimulates the brain by increasing the blood flow to that specific part of the brain which releases endorphins, dopamine, and serotonin, enablers of positive thoughts and arousals. Interestingly, the only other food with the same psychoactive properties is Broccoli. 
  5. Our body is always floating with free radical molecules which are unstable and are neutralized by free radical fighters which are found in antioxidants. One such antioxidant is polyphenols which is one of the compounds found in cocoa. 
  6. Dark chocolate may have as many antioxidants as highly promoted foods like red wine and blueberries. In fact, it’s amongst the favored variety of delicacies, chocolate cake can also be made healthy by adding dark chocolate to its recipe in place of cheap sugary chocolates.
