We love this new finding from Australian scientists: Consuming cocoa daily helps people feel calmer and less reactive to daily stress. The credit goes to polyphenols that interact with stress-relieving GABA receptors in the brain, generating feelings of peace. To enjoy the effects, look for high-quality dark chocolate and cocoa powder to use in drinks and baked goods. One of our favorites: Reserveage Organics CocoaWell Powder ($18 for 8 oz., at VitaminShoppe.com) and Whole Foods Market stores.
