Savor a single serving of dark chocolate and your body will thank you, say Italian researchers. Their team found that after folks were given a mere 1.4 ounces of the healthy treat (about 200 calories worth), nutrients were released into the body that instantly relaxed blood vessels and improved circulation by a whopping 57%. This is great for long-term heart and brain health. It’s great for short-term energy boosting, too: Without even realizing it, folks walked 11% farther and 15% faster after eating dark chocolate than they did after nibbling milk chocolate!
