With Valentine's Day around the corner perhaps it is time to imbibe in a little extra chocolate.. Dark chocolate (greater than 70%) has been shown to protect your vessels and possibly contribute to lower incidence of cardiovascular disease. So go ahead and add a some cacao nibs to your morning oatmeal or granola, or cocoa powder to your coffee for a morning moca. Who says you can't have chocolate for breakfast??

Your skin is a window into your overall health. In other words, what happens on the skin's surface such as acne, premature aging, eczema and dry patches, can be a symptom of what is happening inside your body. Overall inflammation, hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, allergies, and more can affect the health of your skin.

Interesting study.. though it is not clear how many participants were included in this trial.  Save the Tylenol for when it is really needed or ask your doctor for a good alternative.

Artificial sweeteners are 100-1000x sweeter than regular sugar activating our natural preference for sweet taste more than any other substance!
They can trick your metabolism into thinking sugar is on its way. This causes your body to pump out insulin, the fat storage hormone, which contributes to more belly fat. It also slows your metabolism down, so you burn less calories every day.

In animal studies, rats that consumed artificial sweeteners ate more, their metabolism slowed, and they put on 14 percent more body fat in just 2 weeks, EVEN eating less calories.
