Australian Natural Bodz - - Nutrition Knowledge Centre -

The Kuna peo­ple of the San Blas is­lands, off the coast of Panama, have a rate of heart dis­ease that is nine times less than that of main­land Pana­ma­ni­ans. The rea­son? The Kuna drink plenty of a bev­er­age made with gen­er­ous proportions of co­coa, which is un­usu­ally rich in fla­vanols that help pre­serve the healthy func­tion of blood ves­sels. Main­tain­ing youth­ful blood ves­sels low­ers risk of high blood pres­sure, type 2 di­a­betes, kid­ney dis­ease and de­men­tia.
