Cocoa vitamin?

Most of us could only dream of chocolate being a vitamin that we need to take every day. Pretty much any excuse to eat delicious chocolate is a good one, in my book anyway. A cocoa vitamin? Wouldn’t that be something. When I learned that chocolate can actually be a healthy treat, I was blown away. The research on dark chocolate is compelling.

Chocolate research

There are many research studies about the health benefits of dark chocolate. I found the research by a professor of Medicine from Harvard, Norm Hollenberg to be impressive. Norm Hollenberg researched the Kuna people in Panama. What he found was shocking!

“Hollenberg has spent years studying the benefits of cocoa drinking on the Kuna people in Panama. He found that the risk of 4 of the 5 most common killer diseases: stroke, heart failure, cancer and diabetes, is reduced to less then 10% in the Kuna. They can drink up to 40 cups of cocoa a week. Natural cocoa has high levels of epicatechin.”

Benefits of dark chocolate

Epicatechin is a type of flavonoid. Harvard professor of medicine, Hollenberg had this to say about epicatechin. It does make it clear that eating flavonoid rich chocolates are a big deal. Getting rid of 4 of the 5 most common diseases in the western world would be huge. Cocoa vitamin or not, eat chocolate every single day.

‘If these observations predict the future, then we can say without blushing that they are among the most important observations in the history of medicine,’ Hollenberg says. ‘We all agree that penicillin and anaesthesia are enormously important. But epicatechin could potentially get rid of 4 of the 5 most common diseases in the western world, how important does that make epicatechin?… I would say very important’
