In what WebMD called “the best medical news in ages,” studies in Nature and the Journal of the American Medical Association show that the cocoa (or dark chocolate, which contains cocoa) can modestly lower blood pressure.But here’s the thing: This endorsement of chocolate comes with a very big qualification. I am not talking about commercial chocolate bars. The health benefits come from the flavanols and antioxidants, and those are found in real cocoa. So if you want the benefits of these flavanols in your diet, you’ve got to get the real deal chocolate—high-cocoa-content dark chocolate. You’ll see the best of these bars with labels that say things like “60 percent cocoa” (70 percent or higher is even better, but much harder to find).Table of Contents:History of ChocolateNutritionRecipes• Cookies, Brownies, and Cake• Pudding, Mousse, and Fondue• Snacks• BeveragesAbout the Author:Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S., a board-certified nutritionist with a master’s degree in psychology, is a nationally known expert on nutrition, weight loss, and health.
