If super foods were in a band, the Lennon-McCartney award that I just made up for absolute nutritional rock stars would go to cocoa and olive oil. This study of studies reviewed practically every research experiment on earth to conclude that:
“Cocoa flavonoids provided to Type 2 diabetics — and olive oil flavonoids to mildly-hypertensive women — reduced [oxydative stress] and inflammation.
The science-to-English translation? Cocoa and olive oil help improve blood pressure. They think it does this by running around the body and cleaning up those radical free radicals that can lead to disease. And they’re delicious when you make them a part of your every day diet!
And not only do you LOVE them, they love you, yeah yeah yeah.
