Harvard researchers praise stunningly simple discovery !
According to recent estimates,
nearly 1 in 3 Americans adults has high blood pressure
But for the Kuna Indians living on a group of islands off the Caribbean coast of Panama, hypertension doesn't even exist
In fact, after age 60, the average blood pressure for Kuna Indian islanders is a perfect 110/70
Is it because they eat less salt ?
Kuna Indians eat as much,
if not more salt,
than people in the USA
Is it due to their genes ?
Kuna Indians who move away from the islands are just as likely to suffer from high blood pressure as anyone else !
So what makes these folks practically " immune " to hypertension
and let them enjoy much lower death rates
from heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and cancer
Harvard researchers were stunned to discover
that it is because they drink about 5 cups of cocoa each day
That's right , Cocoa !
Studies show the flavonols stimulate
--- boosting blood flow to your heart, brain and other organs
In fact, one study found cocoa thins your blood just as well as low-dose aspirin !
But that's not all

and here is a photo to prove that is so
There, you learned something today
This is proof that this blog is educational !
