Dark Chocolate May Ease Emotional Stress

November 12, 2009

As a chocolate lover, I am pleased to learn about yet one more reason to continue eating dark chocolate.  For several years, dark chocolate has been studied for it’s antioxidant effects, which have shown it’s ability to reduce risks for heart disease.  Now, a study, published in the American Chemical Society Journal, found that highly stressed individuals, who ate 1.4 ounces of chocolate (equal to approximately 3 blocks of Hershey’s Dark chocolate) per day for 2 weeks, had reductions in stress hormones.
