For quite some time scientists and researchers have believed that consuming chocolate in moderate amounts helps in various medical ways; today a report was released that continues to confirm this idea. Chocolate consumption in women has successfully and consistently been linked to a reduced risk for stroke; which is clearly a good thing as it have a significant impact when combined with other risk reducing behaviors and lifestyle changes.
According to the Swedish research crew it wasn’t important what type of chocolate women consumed and neither was the volume. Chocolate in large or incredible small portions had a noticeable impact on the risk for stroke in women of all ages and from all nationalities and with all sorts of family history of medical problems.
Fortunately this time the researchers also looked deeper into the results to find out what exactly was causing the reduction in risk. Women who had consumed chocolate consistently were significantly less likely to have bouts of bleeding in the brain which would frequently lead to major strokes. Overall researchers say that consuming chocolate on a regular and consistent basis will in fact help reduce women’s risk for stroke through a variety of processes involving numerous healthy and helpful chemicals found in chocolate. This is simply great news for the millions of women that already enjoy chocolate for a number of reasons; while consumed in moderation chocolate is in fact a healthy and delicious treat that many doctors do in fact encourage patients to consume.
