Dark chocolate demonstrated to improve cardiovascular health by reducing systemic inflammation


Cardiovascular disease continues to be the leading cause of death in the US and most western cultures, despite the overwhelming volumes of evidence that clearly demonstrate how this killer develops as a result of poor diet, lack of physical activity and a multitude of lifestyle digressions that have been repeatedly documented by nutritional researchers. In addition to eliminating hydrogenated fats, trans fats and processed foods from the diet, scientists have shown that natural nutrients such as omega-3 fats, resveratrol, vitamin D and EGCG from green tea all reduce oxidative stress and squelch inflammatory cytokines that wreak havoc and perpetuate many chronic disease processes throughout the body.
