Antioxidants May Reduce Inflammation And Lower Risk For Chronic Disease

A new study discusses how antioxidant rich dark chocolate can benefit you and how it can lower your risk for chronic disease. If there was something simple you could do to reduce inflammation and thereby lower risk of disease, would you want to protect your family? I sure would!

Specifically

“1.5. Cocoa Flavanols in the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease and Cancer
As stated above, because of their anti-inflammatory capacity, flavanols could be useful in the prevention and treatment of high-prevalence disorders, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. Data from numerous studies suggest that cocoa-derived flavanols can effectively modify the inflammatory process [2,12,19], and thus, potentially provide a benefit to individuals with elevated risk factors for atherosclerosis/cardiovascular pathology and cancer. The implication of the anti-inflammatory effect of flavanols on endothelial and cardiovascular function has been extensively reviewed by Cooper et al. [12] and Selmi et al. [35] and, more recently, in this same journal, by Khan et al. [2]. On the other hand, studies performed in animals have demonstrated that cocoa and its main phenolic components, probably through their antioxidant and/or anti-inflammatory capacity, may prevent and/or slow down the initiation-progression of different types of cancers such as cancer of the prostate, liver, colon, leukemia, etc. [36]”

There is one dark belgian chocolate that has the right to be called “Healthy Chocolate”.  This chocolate is not like traditional candy chocolates, not even like the high cocoa content chocolates you find in your local health food store. This chocoate is different. It is not heated and dutched like traditional chocolate. It does not have waxes, fillers or processed sugars like candy. In fact, one piece has the antioxidant content of over one full pound of raw spinach!  Learn more about eating the only healthy chocolate, Well Beyond Healthy Chocolates!
