Dark chocolate is packed with antioxidants. Theobromine in particular, may help boost the immune system by protecting the cells from free radicals. Free radicals are molecules produced by the body when it digests food or when it comes in contact with pollutants. Though dark chocolate is nutrient packed, it's high in caloric value. Therefore it should be consumed in moderation.
