Effect Of Dark Chocolate On Renal Tissue Oxygenation As Measured By BOLD-MRI In Healthy Volunteers
Notes for this study:
||Non-randomized controlled trial
|Number of Subjects
In otherwise healthy adult subjects given a single dose of either 1g/kg dark chocolate (70% cocoa) or white chocolate and then assessed via BOLD-MRI, it appeared that dark chocolate increased oxygenation of the kidneys relative to white chocolate control; the increase in oxygenation correlating with serum epicatechin.
