3. Dark chocolate

Dark chocolate and its bitter, sumptuous flavor may be healthy for heart health. This is due to chocolate's high content of antioxidants, as well as the copious amounts of healthy components that help to balance things in the body. Studies have also shown that dark chocolate may even reduce the risk of heart attacks, as well as help regulate blood sugar. Consume chocolate that is ideally 70% cocoa. On the contrary, milk chocolate lacks the flavonoids that help the dark chocolate to achieve all of its miraculous health benefits. Don't go overboard with dark chocolate: a few squares per day is sufficient.
