The Sweet Surprise

Enjoying a small amount of flavonoid-filled dark chocolate may prevent clogged arteries and reduce your risk of developing heart disease. Also, eating up to 3.6 ounces daily can be as effective as beta-blockers and ACE inhibitors at lowering blood pressure, notes a recent Archives of Internal Medicine study.

Shopping shortcut: "Look for dark chocolate that has at least 60 percent cocoa, such as Dove Dark," McManus says.

Make it even healthier: Choose a calcium supplement that's also dark chocolate, like Adora Calcium Dark Chocolate.

Bonus Benefits: Studies have shown that eating chocolate releases serotonin, the feel-better brain chemical.

Make sure the chocolate you buy is fair trade... too often we look for the lowest price, but oftentimes this chocolate is made by slaves overseas.
