Cocoa —  contains antioxidants that have been shown to boost heart health by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure and helping keep your coronary arteries healthy.

Cumin — it’s naturally rich in iron and may play a role in weight loss, too.

Garlic — it’s not only used to ward off vampires, but crushed garlic may also lower your chances of getting heart disease.

Ginger — can help with an upset stomach as it has a calming effect on the lining of your digestive system.
