Daily chocolate consumption may be linked to better insulin levels in adults

American Heart Association News, 03/09/2016

Eating chocolate on a daily basis may improve insulin levels and liver enzymes in adults, according to a study presented at the American Heart Association’s Epidemiology/Lifestyle 2016 Scientific Sessions. Researchers studied 1,153 adults, ages 18 to 69 years between 2007 and 2009. Of all the participants, 81.8 percent were classified as chocolate consumers. They found that consuming 100 mg of chocolate daily was associated with lower levels of insulin resistance, serum insulin and liver enzymes, markers associated with heart disease risk. Chocolate consumers were more likely to be younger, physically active, affluent people, who had higher education levels and fewer chronic health issues.
