Health Benefits of Cocoa:

* is one of the most abundant sources of polyphenols. It is especially rich in flavanols, which have a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect.

* both powdered and dark chocolate can help lower blood pressure.

* in addition to lowering your blood pressure, cocoa also appears to have other properties that can reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke. Flavanol-rich cocoa improves the level of nitric oxide in the blood, which relaxes and dilates your arteries and blood vessels and improves blood flow.
