But before you start eating your favorite chocolate, remember this: while chocolate can do the body good, the study certainly doesn't go as far as proving a causal link between eating more chocolate and losing weight. Keep in mind that all chocolate was not created equal: dark chocolate is healthier overall, but even the bittersweet varieties can be high in calories, fat and sugar.

One of the reasons dark chocolate is especially heart-healthy is its inflammation-fighting properties, which reduce cardiovascular risk.

Chocolate also protects your skin. Forget what you've heard _____ chocolate causing skin problems: dark chocolate is _____ good for your skin.
