The world’s most irresistible sweet is chocolate. God knows what the indulging appeal, they have that one cannot stop him from eating until it ends up. Many people what’s to stay away from them as much as possible to help prevent tooth decay and when they are on a weight loss diet. But what’s great about this forbidden delicacy is that it has health benefits too.
The study was conducted by researchers from the universities of Aberdeen, Manchester, Cambridge and East Anglia. It shows through empirical findings that people who eat up to 100g of chocolate a day are 11% less likely to have a heart attack and a stroke. It was also associated with a nine per cent lower risk of hospital admission or death as a result of coronary heart disease, after taking account of dietary factors. So for your loved one who have some sought of heart issue chocolate gift is the best present for them on any occasion.
But chocolate does not merely mean all chocolates; it is the dark chocolate that is at least 70 % cocoa. The evidence suggests that higher chocolate intake is associated with a lower risk of future cardiovascular events,” said the authors of the study.
The reason is that the cocoa bean that’s used in making chocolate is rich in a class of plant nutrients called flavonoids and the higher the flavonoids, the more the benefits. Flavonoids are a type of antioxidant that helps to stimulate blood flow.
According to the heart surgeon association New York review, “dark chocolate in isolation is not going to solve all your health problems. You still need to have a healthy diet, do regular exercise, get sufficient sleep, maintain a healthy body weight and reduce stress.” But again the good point is that if two heart patients do the same as mentioned above, and one also consumes dark chocolate in moderation on a daily basis. Then his chance of getting a heart attack is even 11% less than the former one.
