    Chocolate is a majic food. Many very subtle health benefits. Inn
    moderation of course. Dark chocolate more than any other form, because
    dark chocolate has more chocolate and less of everything that they put
    in chocolate.

    Mm, just the excuse I need... but I take a Beta blocker to control the
    side effects of my thyroid meds. My average BP is now around 98/60.

    I might want to avoid dark chocolate. <sigh>

    A few days ago you mentioned that your weight loss had stalled, and I
    was going to mention having your thyroid checked. I'm glad you did
    that. I was not able to find Armour thyroid for a few years, but I did
    find dessicated thyroid through another company. I have lost 30 pounds
    since May. Becca (who changed her addy to avoid trolls).

    I've been unable to get Thyroid Armour. My Pharmacist is now
    compounding a similar combination of T3/T4 for me. It's looking up a
    bit now as my T4 is higher than it's been for years. ;-) Looks like his
    prep is superior to the commercial item.

    Time will tell.

    And, thanks and congrats on the weight loss! 30 lbs. is a lot.

    So where are you getting Dessicated Thyroid supplements?

    Not at all. If you read the article, you'd see the following: "Our
    meta-analysis of 15 trial arms suggests that dark chocolate and
    flavanol-rich cocoa products are superior to placebo in reducing
    systolic hypertension and diastolic prehypertension. However, flavanol-
    rich cocoa products did not significantly reduce mean blood pressure
    below 140 mmHg systolic or 80 mmHg diastolic."
