Dark Chocolate Performance Enhancing? Scientifically Proven...

Dark Chocolate Improves Exercise Output

A recent study by Kingston University in the UK and published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition has shown that Dark Chocolate alone can increase sports performance by 6 percent.*

"Dark chocolate (DC) is abundant in flavanols which have been reported to increase the bioavailability and bioactivity of nitric oxide (NO)."

The health benefits of dark chocolate have been recognized for some time. Unique health benefits come from the cacao (cocoa).

Research focus has been on the antioxidants contained in chocolate, such as the polyphenols, including the flavanoids (flavanols). Dark chocolate is thought to contain the highest concentration of antioxidants of any other food, which can constitute up to 18% of the total weight of the cacao seed.

Human studies have demonstrated that moderate dark chocolate consumption reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, improves insulin sensitivity, reduces blood pressure, and can reduce both total and LDL cholesterol.

The flavanols in cacao are anti-inflammatory, immune-modulating, memory-improving, and can even reverse age-related memory decline.

Other studies suggest that the antioxidants and fiber in dark chocolate can benefit our healthy gut bacteria (and overall digestion) by acting as a ‘prebiotic’ food.
