Dark chocolate may help divers in Belize

A new study that has just come out may help divers in Belize (or other areas of the world). High antioxidants before diving may help prevent problems with divers.

Some healthy dark chocolate has high levels of antioxidants.

Remember that not all chocolates are the same. Look for a cold pressed dark chocolate for the highest antioxidants – especially flavonols such as catechins and epicatechins.

More specific studies need to be done on divers in Belize and cold processed chocolate to see if those specific antioxidants will help prevent problems such as reducing alterations in cardiovascular function, particularly acute endothelial dysfunction, that are caused by a single field air dive. I always say – any reason to have chocolate is good enough for me! 😉
