Today, I found out that there is a chocolate warehouse sale at our client’s building, Menara TM. The organizer is giving out discounts up to 30 – 50%.
They’re got chocolate from these brands: Cadbury, Loacker, Hersheys, Lindt, Nestle, Ferrero, Kraft, Paton’s Mars, Villars, Van Houten, Ricola (well, this ain’t chocolate :P), Guylian and Fidani.
Did you know …?
Chocolates are known to have amazing health benefits. “Most notably, chocolate is a champion antioxidant.” (Source: http://www.facts-about-chocolate.com)
And, what are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body. When our body cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage. Antioxidants act as “free radical scavengers” and hence prevent and repair damage done by these free radicals. Health problems such as heart disease, macular degeneration, diabetes, cancer etc are all contributed by oxidative damage. Indeed, a recent study conducted by researchers from London found that 5 servings of fruits and vegetables reduce the risk of stroke by 25 percent. Antioxidants may also enhance immune defense and therefore lower the risk of cancer and infection.
Though i can’t say that chocolate is wholly good for you. With the added ingredients that make up to chocolate bars we love, it transforms chocolate to more of a candy. So hold up on the sweet stuff. I’m not a fan of dark chocolate. But if i do come across a dark chocolate bar, I’ll definitely take a few bites of it 🙂
