Sweet Fix: The Benefits Of Sugarless Candy

When you have a craving for a piece of chocolate or candy, nothing will satisfy until the luscious, sweet bite is melting in your mouth. For people who are trying to be healthy or lose weight, the benefits of sugarless products are hard to deny.

Experts say you crave chocolate when your body has a deficiency of magnesium. Eating a mouthwatering piece of natural chocolate as part of a healthy snack can provide your body with the nutrients it needs. When your body has enough magnesium you are less likely to suffer with mood swings, depression, PMS symptoms and irritability.

Moreover, when you go sugarless, you don’t have to worry about tooth decay and gum disease because sugar is a major culprit when it comes to your oral health.

Trim down with candy

Another benefit to selecting sugar-free candy and chocolate from the candy store is that you will lose weight.

People who have ever been on the South Beach Diet know they are only allowed sugarless candy and dark chocolate during Phase 2 of the diet. That’s because eating healthy chocolate and sugarless foods will not sabotage their diligent efforts to lose weight.

While dieting, it’s extremely important to keep blood sugar levels stabilized. Eating foods high in refined sugars can lead to an increased appetite. All the will power in the world won’t keep you from raiding the refrigerator and stalking the local all-you-can-eat buffets. So choose sugar-free products and you will stay sane on your diet.

Take your cravings to the dark side

When you start to crave chocolate, try a piece of dark chocolate, which typically has about 74 percent cocoa. Cocoa contains high levels of antioxidants, which benefit your health by preventing cancer.

But whether you choose dark, light or white chocolate or sugarless hard candies, you are indulging in something that will relieve depression, elevate your mood and bring back your passion for life.
