A recent blog discussed 10 ways to improve your stem cells.
#1 was to reduce sugar intake and adopt a low glycemic diet.
The glycemic index is used to categorize carbohdydrates according to how they influence your blood sugars. Low gylcemic foods results in a small and steady rise in your blood sugar levels. This in turn is associated with a healthier body weight, higher energy levels and better performance.
Dark chocolate has a low glycemic index dark chocolate so it won’t make your blood sugar levels peak and then crash a few hours later. Dark chocolate is chocolate with a cocoa content of 70 percent or higher.
In addition a recent study demonstrated that daily consumption of dark chocolate help prevent cardiovascular events in patients at risk for heart disease. With 100% compliance, treatment would prevent 70 non-fatal and 15 fatal cardiovascular events per 10,000 population.
Bon appetit !
