Harvard Scientists Compare Chocolate to Viagra!

Harvard epidemiologist and nutritionist Eric Ding, Ph.D., found that consumption of flavonoid-rich cocoa was linked to reductions in risk factors for diabetes, a major contributor to cardiovascular disease. Resistance to the hormone insulin, which helps regulate blood sugar, favorably dropped among people who consumed cocoa compared to those who didn’t.

He states:

“Our research fou­nd that high-flavanol cocoa both lowers insulin and insulin resistance – thereby improving sensitivity. The body gets better at pulling dangerous sugar out of the blood stream [when cocoa is consumed], which is good for fighting against diabetes.

High flavanol cocoa improves blood flow via endothelial function (as measured by improved flow-mediated dilation)—which benefits the entire body. Good circulation is the key to heart and brain health, and diabetes risk is increased by poor endothelial blood flow. Interestingly, erectile dysfunction is also fundamentally a circulation problem—Viagra® is also shown to improve flow-mediated dilation, similar to cocoa.”(3)

His research and another Harvard study published in the spring of 2012 together showed that cocoa counters the effects of obesity connected to insulin resistance.
