A study out of the Nestle Research Center in Switzerland (no chance of conflict of interest there) demonstrated that 1.4 ounces of dark chocolate a day lowered the amount of stress hormones in folks’ blood streams, presumably reflecting reduced body reaction to life stress. A good thing.
Previous studies have demonstrated that dark chocolate is cardioprotective and I have mentioned that research in previous blogs. So, finally a health food that tastes good and appeals to the masses. Eat (remember, all things in moderation) live long and be healthy.
