Opt For Dark Chocolate

According to study results published in the American Chemical Society's Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, cocoa powder has nearly twice the antioxidants of red wine and up to three times what is found in green tea. Based on the U.S. Department of Agriculture/American Chemical Society's findings, dark chocolate tested the highest for antioxidants over other fruits and vegetables. Comparing the levels of antioxidants dark chocolate came in with a score of 13,120, its closest competitor milk chocolate had levels of 6,740 and third was prunes at 5770.
