Enjoy the goodness of chocolate and probiotics

WHY do people love chocolate so much ? The simplest reason is because it tastes so good. It contains cocoa butter, which gives it a rich and creamy consistency with cocoa flavor.

 

Chocolate is commonly associated with love and romance, and indeed naturally contains phenylethylamine, the same chemical released in the brain when people fall in love.

 

Chocolate, especially dark chocolate, contains chemicals called flavonoids, which had been shown to bring several health benefits to the human body. Flavonoid have anti-oxidant activity that is able to neutralize free radicals.

 

"Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get." This is among the famous quotes related to chocolate in the movie Forrest Gump, starred by Tom Hanks in 1994.

 

Chocolate has been incorporated into our daily lives since a long time ago. It comes in many forms, flavors and may contain nuts and dried fruits. Now, there is chocolate with probiotics. Just like the quote, life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get.

 

According to the World Health Organization, probiotics is defined as live microorganisms, which when administered in adequate amounts confer health benefits on the host.

 

Probiotics is important in maintaining gastrointestinal health and enhancing the body's immune functions.

 

Probiotics have been added into milk and yoghurt or sold in powder, tablet or capsule form. Probiotics are strain specific, which means that not all are the same. Different strains of probiotics give different health benefits.

 

A clinical study has shown that Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. Lactis BS01 significantly improves bowel movements. It also improves the consistency of faeces and eases its expulsion, reducing abdominal bloating within 30 days.

 

Wondering why probiotics is combined with healthy dark chocolate ? A study in Ghent University in Belgium showed that dark chocolate protects the probitoic bacteria better than milk or yoghurt through the stomach and intestinal tract. It revealed that the survival percentage of probitoics coupled with healthy dark chocolate was nearly three times higher.

 

This combination also protects the probiotics from air, water, heat and moisture, ensuring more probiotics reach the large intestine to establish a proper balance of intestinal flora. All growing children, adults and the elderly, especially those with gut problems such as diarrhea, bloating, indigestion and hard bowel movement and those with a poor immune system can benefit from this.
