Reasons to celebrate: Milk Chocolate is Good For You!

Roll out the banners! Shout it from the rooftops! You CAN enjoy milk chocolate and not feel guilty.

There’s nothing like smooth milk chocolate to encourage the release of dopamine, the ‘pleasure chemical’, in our brains. This connection between chocolate and feeling good becomes cemented, and before long, we’re actively ensuring we have a range of chocolatey delights in our fridges every day.

But glance through any glossy magazine and you’ll soon feel guilty for such chocolate indulgence. “Milk chocolate is bad for you…” and similar disparaging headlines will no doubt be plastered on various pages as the publication in question attempts its ‘955th diet plan of the year’.

Well, here’s the good news: the results of a 12-year study (just how did the lucky souls involved manage to be part of this research?!) have shown that chowing down on a milky chocolate bar or two each day can actually benefit us. This velvety, chocolatey food from the gods has the power to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

Apart from its mood boosting properties, milk chocolate contains an antioxidant that increases blood flow and reduces radical cells that have the potential to turn cancerous. It’s also rich in magnesium, which aids concentration and enhances our rate of reaction.

If all this isn’t reason enough to order OMG’s delicious milk chocolate creations, we’re not sure what will be. You can now order an OMG milk chocolate-filled subscription box to arrive through your letterbox each month (not that many of us would forget to buy chocolate). The ultimate luxury made even better now you know all the health benefits it brings.
