    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – A Valentine’s survey made ​​by Unimer notes that 38% of Costa Ricans will give away chocolates today.

    It is said that this dessert gives us happiness, protects us from strokes , and is also highly rich in nutrients such as protein, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins.

    Well, not just any chocolate, the above only applies to the dark chocolate, which is the purest.

    “Most commercial chocolates are very high in fat because there’s almost no cocoa, only sugar,” said nutritionist Mariamelia Araya of the Nutrisalud center.

    On the positive side, Araya confirmed that chocolate can make you happier because it is rich in serotonin, a hormonal substance that gives us happiness.

    It also prevents heart disease and stroke because it has antioxidant properties that protect our cells.

    “Chocolate can also help lower blood pressure, especially dark chocolate, because it has elements such as flavonoids,” said Araya.
