It’s not in your head—desserts do de-stress! Cocoa, the central ingredient in chocolate has hundreds of stress-fighting compounds, including antioxidants, nutrients, and flavonoids. A daily snack of dark chocolate lowers levels of the stress-induced hormone, cortisol, and returning our body to a balanced state. Better yet, studies show that the antioxidants in chocolate relax the lining of your blood vessels, which lowers your blood pressure and protects your body from stress-related damage. Remember, it’s the compounds in cocoa—not sugar—that are the healthy ingredient; make sure to purchase chocolate with at least 70% cocoa content. Also, have some on hand for the other foods on this list; they’re not all as sweet!
