PAIR: AP­PLES AND DARK CHOCO­LATE TO: lower your stroke risk

Women's Weekly (Malaysia) - - Wellbeing -

Ap­ples con­tain quercetin and dark choco­late is a rich source of cat­e­chins – both pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dants on their own, but to­gether they’ve been found to pre­vent platelets in our blood from clump­ing. This is ben­e­fi­cial for our car­dio­vas­cu­lar health – when platelets stick to­gether too much they can form a clot, in­creas­ing our risk of a stroke.
