    Dark chocolate (70% or higher) for blood pressure

    https://bmcmedicine.biomedcentral.co...1741-7015-8-39

    Roughly 30 calories of dark chocolate (70% or higher cacao) can improve blood pressure by 3-5 points (systolic hypertension/diastolic prehypertension). Not crazy in of itself but considering it's only 30 cal...interesting. Interesting because of course it wouldnt be just supplementing with chocolate. Theres still potassium, magnesium, calcium, vitamin d and quite a few others.

    "Our meta-analysis of 15 trial arms suggests that dark chocolate and flavanol-rich cocoa products are superior to placebo in reducing systolic hypertension and diastolic prehypertension. However, flavanol-rich cocoa products did not significantly reduce mean blood pressure below 140 mmHg systolic or 80 mmHg diastolic. Additional trials of hypertensive populations are needed to elucidate whether local dietary habits or genetic factors influence the blood pressure-lowering effect of cocoa."

    Key word here is hypertension and pre hypertension. That doesnt mean to go out and buy dark chocolate...studies are still incomplete. I just thought it was interesting the correlation between flavonoids and blood pressure.

    I use that when dieting. Helps me associate sweets with wanting to puke.
