Dark Chocolate – Stressed spelled backwards!

If you’re concerned about blood pressure, it might not be a bad idea to pop an occasional piece of dark chocolate in your mouth! A new study found that small amounts of the candy were as effective at lowering blood pressure as other non-pharmaceutical interventions. While not a substitute for hypertension medications, a small dose of chocolate brought results significant enough to be considered clinically beneficial to overall health – Source: Tufts University Health & Nutrition Letter – October 2007

Chocolate is not a drug, so there are no federal regulations to be afraid of.
