#Cocoa Flavanols Improve Vascular Responses to Acute Mental #Stress in Young Healthy Adults

Mental stress has been shown to induce cardiovascular events, likely due to its negative impact on vascular function. Flavanols, plant-derived polyphenolic compounds, improve endothelial function and blood pressure (BP) in humans, however their effects during stress are not known. This study examined the effects of acute intake of cocoa flavanols on stress-induced changes on vascular function. In a randomised, controlled, double-blind, cross-over intervention study, 30 … Continue reading #Cocoa Flavanols Improve Vascular Responses to Acute Mental #Stress in Young Healthy Adults
