Is Eating Chocolate Good for the Heart? The Main Cause Turns Out to Be This....
Heart disease remains one of the most dangerous illnesses, with the World Health Organization confirming that 17.9 million people die from heart disease each year. Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) encompass various heart and blood vessel disorders, including coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, rheumatic heart disease, and other conditions. More than four out of five CVD-related deaths are attributed to heart attacks and strokes, with one-third of these deaths occurring prematurely in individuals under 70 years of age.
The primary behavioral risk factors for heart disease and stroke are an unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use, and excessive alcohol consumption. These behavioral risk factors can manifest in individuals as high blood pressure, elevated blood glucose levels, increased blood lipids, and overweight or obesity.
Additionally, stress can lead to inflammation in the body, which is associated with factors that can harm the heart, such as high blood pressure and reduced levels of 'good' cholesterol. Chronic stress can also indirectly affect the heart by disrupting sleep patterns.
Research from The Clinical Committee, titled 'How Emotional Stress Affects the Heart,' indicates that stress and trauma significantly impact psychological well-being, and recent studies suggest they may also affect the heart. This study involved over 130,000 patients in Sweden who experienced stress.
This demonstrates that stress and worry can have serious health implications. Therefore, the appropriate solution is to achieve peace of mind, and one way to do so is by consuming foods like chocolate.
Chocolate has been proven to relieve stress and anxiety. People worldwide have a fondness for chocolate, as evidenced by Market Data Forecast, which reported that the global Cocoa and Chocolate Market was valued at US$43.13 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach US$67.22 billion by the end of 2028, with an annual compound growth rate of 5.7% between 2023 and 2028.
Furthermore, chocolate, when combined with calming ingredients like Lactium®, is even more beneficial. Lactium® is a milk protein hydrolysate that contains a bioactive decapeptide known for its soothing properties. The adult enzymatic system can no longer naturally release this bioactive peptide, making Lactium® a natural solution for relaxation. Lactium® can also be incorporated into chocolate that is suitable for consumption by everyone.
Here is the formulation: Cocoa, cocoa butter, sugar, skim milk powder, soy lecitin, cocoa flavor, antioxidant, Lactium.
