The Easter Bunny (also called the Easter Rabbit or Easter Hare) is a folkloric figure and symbol of Easter, depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter Eggs.
For those of you who still believe in the Easter Bunny – in whatever form, shape or size - you will be pleased to hear that Cambrai Court is paid a visit every year! We believe that Easter is the perfect opportunity to have some fun around the office. After all, we’ve made it through the cold winter and long dark nights; we deserve it!
We believe the traditional sharing of Easter Eggs to all our tenants is a small way to celebrate this time of year so lets take a look at the health benefits of indulging in a little chocolate at this time of year : )
A 2014 study found that adults who took a high flavanol cocoa supplement for three months performed better on memory tests than participants who consumed a low flavanol cocoa supplement. Additionally, a 2012 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine reported that places where chocolate consumption is highest boast the most Nobel Prize recipients — so if Nobel Prize winners are eating more chocolate, then maybe we should be, too.
Cocoa beans are rich in plant nutrients called flavanoids. Dark chocolate in particular is a great source of flavanols, which has antioxidant properties that may reduce the risk of heart disease.
Consuming moderate amounts of chocolate has also been associated with a lower risk of atrial fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat condition that can increase your risk for a stroke, heart failure, and other heart complications, Harvard experts say.
Speed up recovery
Drinking chocolate milk after you exercise may help repair your muscles, research suggests. In fact, a study from the University of Texas at Austin found that athletes who drank low-fat chocolate milk post-workout instead of a high carb sports drink or a calorie-free drink, had significantly more power and rode faster.
