The Supermarket Cure for AFib?!?

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

If you suffer from irregular heartbeat, then you know how scary it can be.

And every time your heart flutters, you feel like you could be on the fast track to a heart attack or stroke.

But before you let some surgeon fit you for a pacemaker, there’s something you’ll want to try first.

Because Danish researchers have just found that one of the most delicious foods around could be the secret to keeping your heart beating like a drum.

I’m talking about chocolate.

And for years, scientists have known that eating chocolate, particularly the dark varieties, can help boost your heart health and shield you from dangerous heart attacks.

More recently, researchers were curious to see if this miracle food has any effect on atrial fibrillation, a condition that causes irregular heartbeat.

For the study, the scientists looked at the medical records of over 55,500 folks aged 50–64, focusing on the link between atrial fibrillation and chocolate consumption.

And what they found was incredible…

Folks who ate two–six ounces of chocolate a week slashed their atrial fibrillation risk by a whopping 20%!

Just imagine what eating chocolate every day could do for your heart.

Experts believe chocolate was so effective against atrial fibrillation because of its high antioxidant levels.

This study didn’t specify which type of chocolate the participants consumed.

But if you’re going to eat chocolate, the darker the better. Dark chocolate has less sugar and higher levels of heart-boosting antioxidants.

You can get dark chocolate at your local grocery store or pharmacy.

Live well,
