This 2011 - Don’t skip the chocolate: Chocolate is good for you!
According to a study commissioned by the International Cocoa Association: “There is evidence of the cardiovascular benefits of cocoa. These benefits are not only due to the fats in cocoa (cocoa butter), but, even more importantly, because cocoa beans contain a large number of phytochemicals. These are physiologically active compounds found in plants, for example grapes, apple, tea, fruits, vegetables, etc. One group of these compounds is called flavonoids. There is a growing body of evidence about the health benefits of cocoa flavonoids.
They are powerful anti-oxidants and are believed to help the body’s cells resist damage by free radicals, which are formed by numerous processes including when the body’s cells utilize oxygen for energy. Laboratory and human studies have indicated that cocoa flavonoids can inhibit the oxidation of the low-density lipoprotein (LDL-cholesterol) associated with heart disease. There is also emerging evidence, which suggests that cocoa and chocolate may be able to contribute to reducing the risk of certain types of cancer. This beneficial property also originates from the phytochemicals in cocoa, other than flavonoids.
Chocolate consumption has also been reported to reduce the effects of Chronic Fatigue syndrome, reduce blood pressure and keep your heart healthier, according to a recent article derived from a presentation on Prohealth.com
The research, the latest which correlates eating flavonoid-rich foods with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease (1), was presented in February at the American Association for the Advancement of Science's (AAAS) annual meeting in Boston. Eating flavonoid rich foods is believed to add life to your years and years to your life.
