    Cocoa may help reduce cholesterol levels

    Natural compounds in cocoa and dark chocolate may aid the cardiovascular system by improving blood flow and reducing blood pressure.Scientists have also discovered that cocoa may help maintain healthy arteries.

    The flavanols in dark chocolate and cocoa are key to heart health because they deactivate unstable molecules in your blood called free radicals. Free radicals can aggravate the bad cholesterol in your blood and lead to the clogged arteries. Flavanols have also been shown to stimulate the production of nitric oxide, a key gas inside artery walls that relaxes and widens arteries, allowing for the easy flow of blood and reduced blood pressure.

    Re: Cocoa may help reduce cholesterol levels

    They say that dark chocolate is the way to go to lower your cholesterol, because of the large amount of cocoa in it, compared to other chocolate products. Make sure though that you choose products with high cocoa content, that have the least processing. Organic chocolate has less processing than non-organic brands- halloween candy may have undesirable ingredients that may raise cholesterol, like whole milk.

    Re: Cocoa may help reduce cholesterol levels

    Cocoa, Chocolate and Dark Chocolate are medically proven to have a positive effect in reducing cholesterol levels. It contains natural compounds called flavonols which helps in controlling cholesterol. Just be sure to use unprocessed or the least process cocoa products because it's healthier than the processed and adulterated ones.

    Re: Cocoa may help reduce cholesterol levels

    For me, the best benefit I can get from cocoa is the hot choco drink that gives me comfort from the cold weather. I don't know if chocolate has something to do with cholesterol but it has caffeine and that is the element that makes us alert.
