A research by a team of surveyors form the Monash University has unveiled that consumption of dark chocolates each day can help reduce risks of cardiac fatalities, as per a recent report published in the British Medical Journal.
Ella Zomer, Christopher Reid, Alice Owen and Dianna Magliano from Monash department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, who conducted the study, say that those who are at high risks of a cardiovascular disease should just go for it.
The review was carried out with an aim to study the long-term benefits of flavanoids found in dark chocolates to health. While it is already known that chocolates are helpful in lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels. It is now being said that daily consumption of the same can cut nearly 70 non-fatal events per 10,000 people and 15 fatal cardiovascular events in a period of a decade.
“We’re not suggesting that the high-risk group use dark chocolate as their only preventative measure, but in combination with sensible choices, such as exercise”, says Zomer.
The team has suggested taking only 100 grams of dark chocolate daily for 10 years, which could maintain the intake of cocoa to minimum i. e. 70%.
