(ORDO NEWS) — Chocolate has long been considered healthy. Even though it’s kind of sweet.
But now cardiologists have also expressed their word about the positive properties of the product – they have found that the use of chocolate helps to strengthen the health of the heart and the entire cardiovascular system.
Such conclusions were drawn from a study that showed that adding only 28 grams of chocolate per week reduced the risk of heart failure by 18%.
The risk of developing atrial fibrillation is also greatly reduced – the occurrence of such a condition when the heartbeat is irregular.
At the same time, experts note that all of the above is true for chocolate with a high cocoa content. Its amount in the product should be at the level of 70% and above.
