Valentine’s Day | The Benefits of Dark Chocolate | Feb.12, 2016

Screenshot_2016-02-12-12-49-47-1Valentine’s Day, a day full of love, laughter, and chocolate, is right around the corner. Whether it’s a box of chocolates from your significant other, or chocolate covered strawberries from your friends and family, there is a VERY good chance that you’ll be full of the sweet goodness by the end of the weekend. But if you’re worried that this is going to derail your plans for a toned spring break body, no worries because chocolate actually has tons of benefits for you! You may have seen the dark chocolate fountain at the Go Red for Women meal at Fountain, and this is because chocolate consumption is linked with lowering diabetes, coronary heart disease, and hypertension. It is said that eating dark chocolate every day reduces the risk of heart disease by one-third. Also, darker chocolates can lessen your cravings for sweet, salty, and fatty foods. If by chance there is some chocolate left over after the weekend, use it to help you during the week! Chocolate has been found to prevent memory decline, decrease stress levels, and the smell of it has been shown to trigger relaxation. Plus a piece during class could help boost alertness and performance. Fun fact: Every second, 100 pounds of chocolate are eaten in America. Keep in mind that eating that whole box of chocolates in one sitting, could definitely put a damper on your health. Chocolate is high in calories and fat content which has been associated with acne, obesity,and high blood pressure. So remember, everything in moderation! Happy Valentine’s Day! Read More »
