Throughout time, people have been using chocolate, or more specifically cocoa, to treat upset stomachs and raging fevers. Cocoa is the main ingredient in chocolate and includes the very beneficial flavonoids. Chocolate is also helpful, especially dark chocolate, as it is shown to lower blood pressure. Our tip: Consume dark chocolate with 70% or more cocoa in the ingredients; anything less than that and you are likely to be getting too much sugar and various unknown ingredients.
