Chocolate Reduces the Risk of Stroke

Written by Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, B.Sc. Pharmacy, Health Coach - February 12, 2010

  • A study involving nearly 50,000 patients discovered that people who eat chocolate have 22 per cent less probability of suffering from a stroke.  

Chocolate Reduces the Risk of Stroke and DeathPeople who already suffered a stroke started eating chocolate decreased their risk of death by 46 percent.

Two studies were conducted. The first study of 44,489 people found a person having one chocolate per week were 22 per cent less likely to have a stroke than people who ate no chocolate. In the second study, 1,169 people who already suffered a stroke were monitored. If they had 50 grams of chocolate once a week the chances of death decreased by 46 per cent.

Eating too much chocolate may cause fat gain as most chocolate contain high amounts of sugar and fat. Dark chocolate that contains 65% or more cacao will allow you to obtain the benefits of chocolate with a smaller quantity and calories.

It appears only 10 - 30 grams a day of a 65% cacao or higher dark chocolate will provide cardiovascular and cancer health benefits. Future health studies will provide additional dose recommendations.

I love the taste of Pacari Organic Dark Chocolate. Yes, it's even organic! Come by the office for a free sample!
