Your Vision on Sweetest Day

sweetest day candy

Have you heard of Sweetest Day? It’s the third Saturday in October and brings happiness to people. Think Valentine’s Day but a little lower key. Most people get a card and some candy for Sweetest Day. If you plan on picking some up for your sweetheart, we’ve got the lowdown on what candy to buy.

Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate helps improve your vision. People who ate the dark chocolate saw “a significant increase in clarity and contrast sensitivity in the 2 hours after they ate it.”

Dark chocolate also has antioxidants called flavonoids, which help your heart health.

Further testing still needs to be done on the vision or else everyone would splurge on dark chocolate! But if you’re looking for a good gift, consider picking up a dark chocolate heart. Not only will it taste good, but it has also added health benefits for your sweetheart.

Sugar Myths

According to the American Diabetes Association, it’s a myth that eating too much sugar causes diabetes. A big concern is diabetic retinopathy. People with uncontrolled blood sugar levels “cause irreversible damages to the blood vessels in the retina,” says the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

This can lead to blindness. When in doubt, choose healthier options instead of foods loaded with sugar!
