Hi ,
Thanks for the query.
Chocolate(dark) has been proved to have several therapeutic advantages. Lowering of LDL cholesterol, blood pressure, reducing risk of stroke, heart attack, for depression. Chocolate has not been proved to help stomach pain/cramps directly , but has it does help to elevate the mood and thus indirectly help in such situations .
Have a healthy life !
