Some say that chocolate is the ultimate food, because of its composition. Chemically it is filled with opioids. Opioids are pain suppressors and give you a general feeling of wellness. It is certainly a feel-good food, and any promotional items that make your clients feel good are going to be a hit. Remember that when it comes to promotional gifts, the feeling that a person gets from receiving and using the gift, plays an important role when it comes to the conversions that you want to see.

The benefits of chocolate go beyond their marketing power, especially as they are able to play a positive role in the health of those who you give chocolate to. Here are just a few of the health benefits that come with eating chocolate (especially dark chocolate):

–        Chocolate is good for your skin

Throw away any stories you have heard about chocolate being the cause of bad skin conditions. Dark chocolate actually has the opposite effect on your skin and can prevent outbreaks from happening. Flavonoids can also protect the skin from the harmful UV sun rays.

–        Chocolate reduces the risk of having a stroke

According to Swedish studies, eating just 2 bars of chocolate a week can reduce your risk of having a stroke. The flavonoids in chocolate act as an antioxidant which can fight off strokes.

–        Chocolate makes the brain stronger

A study done by Johns Hopkins University has proven that dark chocolate can protect the cells within your brain and again plays a role in reducing your risk of having a stroke. The epicatechin in chocolate has also been found to reduce brain damage in mice after a stroke.
