There is good news for men's arterial health. It turns out chocolate could help lower the risk of stroke in men.
A new study out of Sweden finds men who eat a moderate amount of chocolate each week are less likely to have a stroke.
Doctors say the antioxidants in chocolate are the important ingredient.
Chocolate is a good source of flavonoids, which are antioxidants that can help protect the arteries.
In order to get those antioxidants from chocolate, doctors recommend choosing dark chocolate with a cocoa content of at least 70%.
