Research shows that hot cocoa packs more of an antioxidant punch than green tea, black tea or red wine. However, typical cocoa mixes use a treated form of cocoa that has fewer antioxidants. Look for gourmet mixes with natural (untreated) cocoa, or make your own with store-bought natural cocoa, stevia and milk.

Rejoice some more! Dark chocolate has been shown to reduce blood pressure slightly, so it may actually be healthy for your heart. Don't gorge, though: The study's participants ate about 30 calories' worth each day (which is the amount found in 1.5 Special Dark Hershey's Kisses).
