Good News: Consumer Reports Says Dark Chocolate Is a Stress Reliever

Brett forwarded me an article on the Consumer Reports website that says that dark chocolate was shown to reduce stress in a recent study. Now that’s some good news!

Here’s a quote from the article:

In a study last year 30 people who complained about stress ate a little bit of dark chocolate every day for two weeks. In the end the most stressed-out participants showed the most improvement. Researchers found that dark chocolate might help lower your stress hormones.

Did I read “dark chocolate every day?” I think I did. So when you’re feeling really stressed, try chocolate!dark-chocolate

I’m glad I just bought that 2 pound bag of Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate chips for snacks… maybe I’ll let Brett have some for his stress relief too :).
