A modern American woman has nothing to herselfrefuses and eats about 14 kg of chocolate a year, Swiss about 12 kg, a resident of the Foggy Albion - 10 kg, a German - almost 8 kg, a slender Japanese woman - 3.5 kg, a Russian likes chocolate very much, but eats only 2.5 kg . It's quite a bit - about 8 g per day. More we can not afford, because we are afraid to get well. But chocolate is a storehouse of carbohydrates, which contribute to the production of serotonin, and glucose, a source of energy. Serotonin increases vitality, calms appetite, relieves pain and helps to fall asleep. If this hormone is not enough, the mood deteriorates, and we instinctively attack the sweet. The level of serotonin varies depending on the state of health and season. Its deficiency is one of the reasons that in the second half of the day, especially in winter (and in women even before the menstruation), we are drawn to the sweet. It is known that even in a small piece of dark chocolate contains so many flavonoids (and they are responsible for the normal work of the heart and blood vessels), as contained in five cups of tea, six apples, two glasses of red wine or twenty-eight glasses of white.
Coffee drinks the whole world, to be exact, 2 billion people. They drink it just black, with milk, cream, ice cream, adding various spices: cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and even black pepper and salt. Coffee is not the enemy's heart, of course, if you drink it with non-liter mugs. With moderate use, this divine drink even improves the functioning of the heart and protects it from ailments. American scientists have proved that a dose that is healthy for the heart is 3-4 cups a day. Drink from ground grains is preferable to soluble (soluble coffee leads to fluid retention in the body, irritates the intestines, provokes the development of cellulite). And it is better that he was not black, but with milk that softens the effect of caffeine. Drink to your health! By the way, from the coffee aroma alone you can already lose weight! Essential oils give a charming smell to the drink. They drive sleep and fatigue, improve mood, and in addition, exacerbate reactions and increase attention. Caffeine, contained in coffee beans, relieves swelling, burns fat and even fights with the "orange peel" on the skin. The coffee contains a whole complex of macro- and microelements: manganese, magnesium, iodine, phosphorus, iron, calcium, vitamins A, D, P. Thanks to the mild laxative and diuretic effect, coffee helps to purify the body of toxins and toxins, providing a mild detox effect. There are grains and coffee oil, which improves the skin condition. It is not surprising that coffee-based compounds are widely used in cosmetology to combat excess kilograms and cellulite. And caffeine alleviates the pain, so pharmacologists often include its composition of various analgesics.
