Mary Engler, Ph.D professor of physiological nursing at the University of California at San Francisco says – Stick to healthy chocolate with at least 70% cacao. Limit yourself to 7 ounces, about four dark chocolate bars a week to gain best results.

A 100 gram bar of dark chocolate with 70-85% coco contains – 11grams of fiber, 67% of the RDA for iron, 58% of the RDA for magnesium, 89% of the RDA for copper, 98% of the RDA for manganese.
