choco­late calms fl ut­ter­ing hearts

Amazing Wellness - - AMAZING NEWS -

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.
