You-Be-Fit Tip of the Day- Exercise and Chocolate
Posted on:Apr 15, 2016

When it comes to facts about exercise, people who exercise could improve their performance by about 50% if they consume dark chocolate frequently. At least this happens to mice. Researchers fed mice the important ingredient in the dark chocolate – the flavonol epicatechin, then put them through two weeks of treadmills tests. Researchers notice both metabolic and structural changes in cardiac and skeletal muscles, leading to stronger and greater endurance.  The weekend is coming so enjoy some dark chocolate. But not too much 😉
