Research Shows Chocolates Reduce Heart Problems
Latest research shows that some chocolates may help reduce the occurrence of heart attack or stroke.
Brian Buijsse, lead author of the research team and a nutritional epidemiologist at the German Institute of Human Nutrition in Nuthetal said that dark chocolates bring the best results.
“Dark chocolate exhibits the greatest effects, milk chocolate fewer, and white chocolate no effects,” he explained.
Consuming about an ounce of chocolate daily will already do the trick. This means the study does not advice bigger consumption, as it will help increase waistlines.
The research was done by surveying about 20,000 people for eight years. Their consumption of their chocolates and the rest of their diet were studied.
The reason behind it is probably, at least part of it, due to lower blood pressure. Previous studies have already indicated the association of lower blood pressure with eating chocolates. This latest study observed the same trend.
