Healthy Cocoa

Someday a cup of cocoa could be more than a sugar fix.
 
A new study finds that cocoa's antioxidants, called flavonoids, coax the body into making more nitric oxide, which relaxes the blood vessels. That in turn eases blood pressure and helps circulation.
 
The problem with cocoa drinks now is that many of those helpful flavonoids get destroyed in processing that makes the drink sweet.
