Chocolates for Valentine's
3 big benefits of Dark Chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)
It makes your mood HAPPY!!
Contains phenylethylamine which helps release those feel good serotonin and endorphins
Helps prevent heart disease
It contains flavonoids (antioxidants or free radical fighters) and can help lower blood pressure and LDL (bad) cholesterol
It can protect your skin
Flavonoids in dark chocolate absorb UV light,increase blood flow to the skin and improve the skin's hydration and complexion
Be a little cautious as chocolate does pack a few calories so experts say to stick to 3 ounces of the sweet stuff every day.
Remind your sweetie to go DARK chocolate this Valentine's.
