Benefits of dark chocolate for pregnant women

Stress management

There is no denying that pregnant women are always in a state of psychological stress throughout the pregnancy.

Many studies have shown that the consumption of dark chocolate can reduce stress levels significantly.

Helps to get in a good mood

Eating dark chocolate improves mood because chocolate contains a lot of serotonin that acts as an antidepressant.

Not only for pregnant mothers, eating a lot of dark chocolate during pregnancy also helps the baby in the womb feel happier.

Reduces the likelihood of miscarriage

Miscarriages are unintended, but women who eat dark chocolate regularly during pregnancy are found to be less likely to miscarry in the first trimester (about 20%).

Regulates cholesterol levels

Dark chocolate is low in sugar and fat that helps regulate cholesterol levels in the body.

In addition, dark chocolate contains flavonoids that increase beneficial cholesterol levels, reduce the oxidation of bad cholesterol and regulate blood sugar levels.

Prevent weight gain

It is difficult to avoid weight gain for both mother and baby during pregnancy.

Weight gain is good for your baby, but you shouldn’t gain too much either.

Dark chocolate is low in sugar and fat, so it does not promote weight gain but instead helps maintain healthy weight gain.
