    Hello Orange Lion!

    Thank you for your question!

    This depends on the type and amount of chocolate you eat!

    It has been proven that eating a small quantity of dark chocolate everyday could be beneficial for your health. This is the case of chocolate that is made more than 70% of cocoa, since it constitues a good source of proteins, fibers and minerals. It was also proved that cocoa improve brain's health.

    However, chocolate products that contain a small amount of cocoa and a big amount of sugar are not as beneficial, since the effects of cocoa are negligible and the effects of sugar are not positive on the body.

    I hope this answers your question!

    Éveline 😉
