Cocoa Manufacturers Can Claim Health Benefits From Cocoa!

Kudos to the European Commission.  They approved the health claim that cocoa improves health at a dose of 200 mg/day.  Nice!

Looks like Europe is way ahead of us in admitting that food can have a clinical effect:

"Chocolate Maker Wins Go-Ahead for Health Claim"

"The chocolate maker was able to provide evidence to the European Commission that a daily intake of 200 milligrams of cocoa flavanols from either 2.5 grams of its registered trademark Acticoa cocoa powder or 10 grams (0.35 ounces) of its dark chocolate supported healthy blood circulation.

"Cocoa flavanols help maintain the elasticity of blood vessels, which contributes to normal blood flow," the European Commission said its in commission regulation. "Information shall be given to the consumer that the beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200 milligrams of cocoa flavanols."

The approval means the health benefits can be flagged on Acticoa products in all European Union countries."

Remember that it has to be raw cocoa if you want the benes since normal cocoa destroys the flavanol content:

Dutch cocoa has some flavanol content.  I have some every day and feel it really helps...

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.
