chocolate calms fl uttering hearts
Atrial fibrillation, the medical term for irregular heart rhythms, is associated with stroke, heart failure, dementia, and earlier death, but high-cocoa chocolate can reduce the flutters. A study tracked more than 55,000 Danish men and women for about
13 years and found that eating chocolate two to six times per week reduced risk of flutters by 20 percent, likely because chocolate contains antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and antiplatelet nutrients, and magnesium. However, researchers warned against eating large amounts of the treat.
