Dr. Lee Berk at the Loma Linda School of Public Health in California found that laughing lowers levels of stress hormones, and strengthens the immune system.

Villa Health Fact: Chocoholics, rejoice! Because of the flavanoids—antioxidants that can help suppress LDL, or “bad” cholesterol—present in chocolate, indulging in a square or two may decrease your risk of stroke (Experts recommend sticking to one ounce per day, two to three times per week). Nibbling on the sweet stuff can also keep your heart strong by keeping arteries flexible and preventing white blood cells from adhering to the walls of blood vessels.

The leafy green is a great source of a specific kind of fat (yes, fat!) called alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that’s known to improve heart health . It’s also got inflammation-fighting phytonutrients that can help prevent plaque formation on your arteries. As if that weren’t enough, kale is also rich in lutein, a nutrient that’s been shown to protect against atherosclerosis (again, that’s the hardening of the arteries that can lead to heart attack or stroke).
