Protective Effects Of Flavanol-rich Dark Chocolate On Endothelial Function And Wave Reflection During Acute Hyperglycemia
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
Ingestion of 100g dark chocolate (flavonoid dose not specified) for three days prior to an oral glucose tolerance test, compared to the placebo group given flavonoid free chocolate, appeared to be associated with no alterations in blood pressure or blood flow despite the expected increases (from the oral glucose tolerance test) occurring in the white chocolate group.
Neither group experienced changes in parameters of insulin sensitivity or secretion.
