If using dark chocolate, containing 90% or more of pure cocoa, studies show dark chocolate benefits the cardiovascular function by reducing central artery pressures and may help promote vascular relaxation (1).

Also, the abundant nutrients and rich antioxidants in the raspberries help make this a heart-healthy treat.  Red raspberries are high in vitamins - including vitamin C, manganese, magnesium, copper, iron, and potassium.  Potassium has been shown to help control and lower blood pressure.  One cup of raspberries contains approximately 186 mg. of potassium.  The flavonoids in these berries, especially anthocyanins, may help reduce inflammation that may lead to cardiovascular disease.  Raspberries are also high in fiber, which may help manage or prevent high cholesterol and blood pressure; while helping to reduce weight gain - contributing to over-all health.
