LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Doctors say it's important to take your daily vitamin, but what if it were chocolate? Now doctors are promoting a chocolate pill.

It's not exactly the same as popping a piece of Hershey's milk chocolate in your mouth.

Researchers are taking out the sugar and fat from chocolate, and adding nutrients, and they say it could be good for your heart.

Doctors in Boston and Seattle say the flavanols inside dark chocolate can lower the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

It has been proven to improve cholesterol, insulin regulation, and other heart issues.
