Dark Chocolate Everyone's favorite superfood (OK, maybe some prefer the red wine) truly is super. As Dr. Pratt says, "dark chocolate seems to contribute to lowering blood pressure, increasing blood flow, and ultimately contributing to a healthy heart." Remember, though, this applies solely to dark chocolate -- white and milk don't count. And, the darker the better. As Dr. Oz points out you "need dark chocolate with 70 percent or more pure cocoa to reap the benefits."
It's also important to note that the fact that it's good for you doesn't give you carte blanche to eat it all day, every day. Chocolate, in any form, is high in calories -- restrict your intake to 100 calories of dark chocolate a day.
Don't like chocolate? What on earth is the matter with you?
