5. Dark chocolate

Chocolate, especially the dark variety, is an excellent agent in lowering LDL cholesterol. The nutrients in pure cocoa can prevent oxidization of LDL cholesterol in the blood, but that doesn't mean the treat should be consumed in excess. Most chocolate contains sugar, which is equally problematic in high quantities. It is also important to choose chocolate with at least 70% cocoa to reap the nutritional benefits of this tasty snack.
