Dark chocolate may lower your blood pressure

And thatís not all it can contribute to!

Several studies have, over the last few years, been examining the beneficial effects of polyphenols - found in fruit, vegetables, dark chocolate and beverages derived from plants (like red wine and tea). The secret to all these benefits lies in the positive effect these polyphenols, like flavan-3-ols, and their oligomeric derivatives, procyanidins, have on the cells that make up the cardiovascular system. That is why the control of blood pressure can be assisted and the formation of atherosclerosis can be slowed down.

Remember, studies show that having a diet of mainly raw fruits and vegetables is still the most powerful life-extending thing to do. Enjoy your dark chocolate in moderation.

Regards

Dr Anton
