Dark chocolate

Cocoa contains what are known as flavonoids. These are strong antioxidants that have a beneficial effect on blood vessels. The higher the percentage of cocoa in a bar of chocolate, the more flavonoids it contains. White and milk chocolate contain little to no cocoa. You should therefore opt for (extra-)dark chocolate, with a cocoa content of at least 65%. Be aware that all types of chocolate are high in unsaturated fat and should therefore be eaten in moderation.
