h hot cocoa: health.
In his study, Lee compared the levels of antioxidants (chemicals shown to help prevent cancer, heart disease, and aging) found in hot cocoa, green tea, and black tea. He found that hot cocoa has two to three times more antioxidants than green tea and four to five times more of the health-promoting molecules than black tea.
Having a lot of antioxidants doesn't necessarily make something healthier, though. "A cup of cocoa has much higher antioxidant activity than one apple," says Lee. "But an apple also provides fiber and other nutrients that cocoa does not."
