You may be thinking: “Finally a delicious superfood!” Chocolate has nutrients that help with blood flow to the brain and heart. If you’re scared of the calories, go for cacao – same effects but almost no fat. Just look at the label and stay away if you read “alkalized.” It means “processed” and most of the antioxidants are no longer there. A bonus for eating chocolate: It improves mood and it reduces the “bad” cholesterol.  There are many kinds of chocolate but always try to aim for the one that is at least 70 percent cocoa.
