HealthierMe: Chocolate Lowers Stroke Risk

Posted: Updated:

We all know about the cardiovascular benefits of chocolate, but now a new study finds the sweet stuff can help prevent stroke in men! Researchers found men who consumed the most chocolate per day had a 17% lower risk of stroke than men who ate no chocolate at all. This protection is mostly likely because of the flavonoids in chocolate that may decrease bad cholesterol as well as blood pressure. And although dark chocolate has been associated with heart benefits the men in this study consumed milk chocolate.
