Chocolate’s anti-inflammatory properties

Inflammation has been getting a lot of attention recently as “some researchers now believe that low-grade inflammation is associated with everything from heart disease and diabetes to Alzheimer’s and arthritis, and may even be the cause of most chronic diseases.” – (http://www.wellnessletter.com/ucberkeley/feature/inflammation/#)

What’s great news though is that chocolate has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Phenols, an antioxidant, a compound in cocoa-rich chocolate are the same as the ones found in red wine. The more chocolate percentage the higher the antioxidants there are and more benefits to be found. Magnesium also has anti-inflammatory properties, which is also found in chocolate.
