Dark Chocolate To Help Your Heart

Don't feel bad about all that Easter candy, at least if it's dark chocolate in those baskets at home, you might be helping your heart.

We've talked about this before, but a new study in the Archives of Internal Medicine analyzes 10 other studies to compare any real benefits in tea and cocoa. Researchers found, again, that foods rich in cocoa like dark chocolate resulted in lower blood pressure levels enough to match levels reached with medication.

You should enjoy your chocolate in moderation, and as for the tea, researchers couldn't find any blood pressure benefit there.
