Pure Cocoa Powder, the Key Ingredient in Dark Chocolate and Found in Diabetes Support Supplements has been Clinically Proven to Reduce Cardiovascular Risk

Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (PRWEB) December 07, 2012

Diabetes Support Supplements, a new dietary supplement from ProactiveLife, is the first product to infuse pure cocoa powder with nine other ingredients to provide support for healthy blood glucose levels and cardiovascular support. Recent studies have shown pure cocoa lowers cardiovascular risk.

According to the Journal of American College of Cardiology June 3rd addition type 2 diabetics who consumed pure cocoa witnessed a 30% increase in arterial blood flow.

At the American Heart Institute’s conference in 2011 Harvard researchers looked at 21 studies involving 2,575 participants and found that cocoa consumption is associated with decreased blood pressure, improved blood vessel health, and improvement in cholesterol levels, among other benefits. Eric L. Ding, PhD, of Harvard Medical School believes the healths benefits come from polyphonic flavonoids in cocoa.

A meta analysis conducted by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) in 2011 reported the following. “Of the seven studies, five trials reported a significant inverse association between chocolate intake and cardiometabolic disorders. For example, individual studies showed reductions in the risk of coronary heart disease, the risk of cardiovascular disease mortality, and the risk of incident diabetes in men.”

A presentation at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 2011 Congress showed that people who consumed the most chocolate had a 29% lower risk of stroke compared with people who consumed the lease amount of chocolate.

A study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health it noted the following:" Data were collected for: blood pressure, pulse, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, TG, BMI, C-reactive protein, flow-mediated vascular dilation (FMD), fasting glucose, fasting insulin, serum isoprostane, and insulin sensitivity/resistance indices. Twenty-four papers, with 1106 participants, met the criteria for final analysis. In response to FRC consumption, systolic blood pressure decreased by 1.63 mm Hg (P = 0.033), LDL cholesterol decreased by 0.077 mmol/L (P = 0.038), and HDL cholesterol increased by 0.046 mmol/L (P = 0.037), whereas total cholesterol, TG, and C-reactive protein remained the same. Moreover, insulin resistance decreased (HOMA-IR: -0.94 points; P < 0.001), whereas FMD increased (1.53%; P < 0.001). A nonlinear dose-response relationship was found between FRC and FMD (P = 0.004), with maximum effect observed at a flavonoid dose of 500 mg/d; a similar relationship may exist with HDL cholesterol levels (P = 0.06). FRC consumption significantly improves blood pressure, insulin resistance, lipid profiles, and FMD." (1)

ProactiveLife was founded in 2011 to help people take control of their health. The approach incorporates community, lifestyle changes, and natural supplements to assist people with blood sugar regulation and provide cardiovascular support.

Diabetes Support contains 10 ingredients to lower blood sugar naturally including cocoa, cinnamon, omega-3, vitamin D and others while providing cardiovascular support. Along with lifestyle changes including diet and exercise Diabetes Support is a new proactive approach to better health.
