New British study finds: Eating milk chocolate every day could reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke

by , 17 June 2015

Good news, chocolate lovers! The new time you find yourself indulging in a slab of milk chocolate, you won't have to feel so guilty…

According to a new British study, eating milk chocolate regularly can lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.

In the study, published in the journal Heart, middle-aged adults who ate as much as 100 g of milk chocolate a day seemed to receive heart health benefits. Read on to find out more.

Eating milk chocolate could promote cardiovascular health, researchers say

“People who want to eat chocolate shouldn’t be worried too much about their cardiovascular health,” said study co-author Dr Phyo Myint, chair of medicine of old age at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. 
 
“We didn’t find any harmful effects of chocolate, if they want to enjoy chocolate now and again. The key is moderation.”
 
But while this study uncovered a link between chocolate and heart health, it didn’t prove cause and effect.
 

Participants who ate milk chocolate every day had a lower risk of heart attack and stroke

The research team based its findings on almost 21,000 adults taking part in a study that’s tracking the impact of diet on the long-term health of 25,000 men and women in Norfolk, England.
 
The team monitored the participants for nearly 12 years, on average, during which time 14% of them fell ill with either heart disease or stroke.

******************************
Researchers found that people who ate milk chocolate every day – up to 100 g – had a 14% lower risk of heart disease a 23% lower risk of stroke compared to those who ate no chocolate.
 
But what’s in milk chocolate that could provide benefits for your heart?
 
The team explained that chocolate contains large quantities of flavonoids – organic compounds thought to have anti-inflammatory properties that could ward off heart disease.
 
Other ingredients in a bar of milk chocolate that could be good for your health include milk, nuts and fatty acids, Myint said.
 
But I’m about to burst your bubble now: You can’t go ahead and rely solely on chocolate to lower your risk of heart disease and stroke. The team stressed that it’s important to include it as part of an overall balanced, heart-healthy diet to reap the benefit.
