Yes it does, that and being Dutch-processed. Go for 100% organic, especially for the cardiovascular benefits.
In other news, I find that I've been leaner than usual as of late with my recent addition of milk back into my diet. I used to drink a lot of milk as a kid and was always lean, then heard about the apparent wrongings of dairy and eliminated it from my intake. Started it drinking it again and noticing my body fat shrinking. Strange.
My body seems to be able to handle dairy extremely well - that or all the extra calcium that I'm getting (I don't believe even the cruciferous veggies rank near as well as milk calcium)
