Flavonoid deficiency in the diet is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and other chronic diseases. Recent studies indicate that increased consumption of chocolates may be associated with decreased risk of CVDs and in-sulin resistance, inflammation and hyperlipidemia. In the present editorial, we have sought supporting evidence for such claims. It is possible that cocoa consumption (30-1000mg/day) in the form of dark chocolates can protect against hyper-tension, stroke, atherosclerosis, insulin resistance and memory dysfunction. Further research is necessary to prove this finding.
