The heart wants what the heart wants, ask any women, and she’ll say she wants chocolate this Valentine’s Day.  I wonder why this is?  Could it be because chocolate is delicious and melts in your mouth.  Well yes.  But could it also be because chocolate has a greater purpose for your body?  YES. Dark chocolate has been proven to help with circulatory health, according to Everyday Health article listed below.

Did you know?  Pregnant women who eat dark chocolate every day can improve the circulatory health for both their babies and themselves! According to Everyday Health, 

“Pregnant women who nibble just a small piece of chocolate each day may improve the circulatory health of their unborn child, a new study suggests.  The tiny treat may also reduce the risk for preeclampsia, a potentially deadly condition in which a pregnant woman with normal blood pressure suddenly develops dangerously high blood pressure”.

So while you are considering what to get for Valentine’s day, treat your tastebuds and your body with some love and get yourself dark chocolate!  Also, don’t forget to wear  your compression stockings to help with circulatory health as well!  They’ll help you feel rejuvenated, and trust me, your legs with thank you!
