Antioxidants May Reduce Inflammation And Lower Risk For Chronic Disease

A new study shares the benefits of antioxidant rich dark chocolate and how it impacts disease.


“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]”
