Most chocolate in the US is now genetically modified. Anybody surprised?
Yes, I agree with you. When I was a child, I was told to eat chocolate for preventing heart disease if you are not afraid of fat. And now I can’t agree more, cause I ‘m working in a healthy company called Creative Animodel doing research about the components with drugs.
Cacao is a nice for human health because Cocoa is rich in anti-aging antioxidants.
Cacao is probably the highest natural source of magnesium, which is required for proper heart function. Furthermore, theobromine, a natural alkaloid found in cacao, is also responsible for vasodilation, which contributes to reducing blood pressure.
Eating a moderate amount of chocolate a day has been linked to a lowered risk of heart disease and stroke.
University of Aberdeen experts looked at the eating habits of more than 20,000 middle-aged and elderly people.
They concluded that compared to those who ate no chocolate, those who ate up to a small bar a day had an 11% lesser risk of cardiovascular disease and a 23% reduced risk of stroke.
