And here are four steps to maximize the health benefits of dark chocolate:
The Darker the Chocolate, the Better. Dark chocolate has a higher percentage of cocoa solids, containing the health benefits, than milk or white chocolate. Most dark chocolate products have the cocoa percentage labeled.
Eat Moderate Portions, as mentioned in the article. Chocolate is a high-calorie food. Over indulge, and the health benefits of dark chocolate can be quickly outweighed by the problems of weight gain.
Avoid the High Calorie Extras. The health benefits of dark chocolate come from the antioxidants in the cocoa solids. All of the other ingredients, like sugar, and any extras, like nougat, caramel, marshmallow, etc., just add calories.
Do Not Consume With Milk. For some reason, not yet scientifically understood, the health benefits of dark chocolate are basically negated if the dark chocolate is consumed with milk.
We now have a better reason to include dark chocolates in our diets. Thanks for the facts.

If you decide to try to incorporate chocolate into your battle against high blood pressure, keep in mind that the chocolate must still have the flavonoids in it for it to have any possible cardiovascular benefits. Most commercial chocolates are so processed they no longer have the flavonoids so be sure to check the label before you buy.
Increasing nitric oxide in the blood stream can be a very effective way to help control your blood pressure. Exercise is a great way to increase nitric oxide. Another fantastic way to lower blood pressure naturally is with an isometric handgrip therapy device called the Zona Plus.
