Its the caffeine in it that is what makes it a use in moderation thing.

If you are having cardiac issues with the hyperthyroidism then limiting/eliminating caffeine is a health choice.

I personally found a natural chocolate with low caffeine amounts in while I was having cardiac issues. Now that that has resolved I enjoy chocolate when I want.
