The Gift of Chocolate

Gifts and the giving of gifts: Is chocolate the lovely gift we want to give?

Ah, chocolate, the gift of lovers–and–those who can’t think of anythingelse to buy. 

Is chocolate the lovely gift most of us think it is?

Chocolate contains:

  • Antioxidants: Can help combat dangerous free radicals.
  • Caffeine: High enough caffeine content to fight fatigue.
  • Catechins: Thought to help fight heart disease and possibly cancer. Dark chocolate can contain up to four times the amount of catechins found in green tea.
  • Copper: Helps in collagen formation needed for supple skin, aids bone growth and strength, and facilitates the transportation of iron.
  • Endorphin Secretion: Produces a pleasurable sensation or high similar to the runner’s high a jogger feels after running. I
  • Serotonin: A chemical found in the brain which can act as an anti-depressant.

Chocolate as a gift sounds healthy. Well, as long as we do not mention itsnegative qualities of calories, sugar, dairy, and high fat content. Much of the fatin chocolate, though, comes from cocoa butter, which melts at body temperature.This helps create that pleasant melt-in-your-mouth sensation.

Many people crave chocolate. They crave it because chocolate tasteswonderful as it seems to melt in your mouth, though. They also crave it becauseof emotional associations of chocolate and love and holidays or othercelebrations. 

Yummm.
