Cocoa contains phytosterols (especially beta-sitosterol) that block the absorption of cholesterol from the diet. It also contains polyphenols, antioxidants that prevent atherosclerotic processes. Chocolate is a very energetic or calorie-dense food, so it is recommended in situations that require a concentrated energy intake, such as athletes.
