2. Sip cocoa for your heart
Another reason to enjoy this tasty treat: It helps to maintain healthy blood vessels, which support healthy circulation and a healthy heart. Opt for antioxidant-rich cocoa beans, which contain twice the amount dark chocolate does without much the added pro-aging fat and sugar, says Cheryl Forberg, RD, and author of Positively Ageless: A 28-Day Plan for a Younger, Slimmer, Sexier You.

Choose “natural” cocoa powder — when processed, added alkali reduces its antioxidant numbers.
