Chocolate can seem helpful when consumed during your workout breaks to boost your energy levels.

Eating chocolates have proven that it reduces the risk of LDL or “bad cholesterol” levels in the blood. Regular consumption can also improve blood pressure and hence cholesterol levels as well. This is especially true if the chocolates consumed contain Plant sterols (PS)  and Cocoa flavonols (CF).
