Dark chocolate: the wise choice this Valentine’s Day

getty-medium-getty-3698-157627699-jpgTwo months after the feast-heavy holiday season, Valentine’s Day offers us another chance to indulge in both sweet treats and each other’s company. Every February 14th, Americans spend billions of dollars on everything from jewelry and flowers to those iconic, heart-shaped candies and boxes of chocolates.

It’s only fitting that this treat-filled holiday falls right in the middle of National Wise Health Care Consumer Month. Most Valentine’s Day favorites are filled with sugars that are both addictive and processed, and excessive consumption takes a toll on the human body. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Give the gift of good health this year by treating yourself and your Valentine to dark chocolate, a rare treat that’s as delicious as it is nutritious.

Eating dark chocolate, which is filled with healthy antioxidants and vitamins, has been proven to improve blood flow to the brain and heart, which in turn reduces the risk of stroke and blood clots. Because it comes from the bitter part of the cocoa plant, it even contains Theobromine, a molecule that strengthens teeth against the very same cavities that its unhealthier cousins can cause.
