It’s that time of the year again where we’ll be stuffing our faces with sweet treats, but if you’re already feeling that tinge of guilt for reaching for those Christmas candies, here’s why you shouldn’t: Candies are actually not all that bad! Yes, it’s true! In fact, numerous studies have shown that moderate consumption of candies can actually lead to a host of health benefits!

And if you’re in need of an extra boost this month to perk up that Christmas cheer, don’t feel so bad lah for consuming all the sweet stuff. Here’s why candies are actually good for you (on top of being delicious!).

Of course, do remember that everything should be consumed in moderation!

 

1. Consuming chocolate can help enhance your mood

Unless you’re a Christmas elf, there is bound to be a day where you’re just not in the mood for the festive season. Well, one quick way to boost your mood is actually by taking a bite of chocolate as it contains phenylethylamine (PEA), a chemical known to enhance our mood. What’s more, two cups of hot chocolate a day have also been found to improve memory and cognitive function among older people. Plus, cocoa also contains flavonoids which are widely reported to reduce the risk of heart disease!

 

2. Chewing gum can help reduce stress

In true Malaysian fashion, many of us struggle to get anything done on time. Malaysian timing, ma. One common stress faced by many during the festive season is shopping for gifts on CHRISTMAS EVE itself. Well, if you’re prone to doing your shopping at the last minute every Christmas, then chewing gum can reduce anxiety by stimulating areas of the brain related to attention and self-control.

 

3. Peppermint candies can help ease digestion 

Let’s face it, it wouldn’t be Christmas without a grand feast to highlight the occasion. Plus, as Malaysians, it will be hard for us to resist all the tempting Christmas dishes at every open house we go to. If you’ve ever woken up feeling nauseated on Boxing Day, then consuming peppermint candies (those made from real peppermint extract) can help soothe an upset stomach by easing gas and bloating. This is a result of the cooling menthol in peppermint oil, which stimulates the stomach lining and eases stomach pain.
