Cocoa Drink Aids Walking in People with Peripheral Artery Disease

A clinical trial involving 44 peripheral artery disease patients aged 60 years and over, found that those who drank a beverage containing flavanol-rich cocoa three times a day for six months were able to walk up to 42.6 meters further in a six-minute walking test, compared with those who drank the same number and type of beverages without cocoa. The researchers say that while larger trials are needed, the reported results suggest that cocoa may have a durable beneficial effect on calf muscle in people with PAD.
