MORE COCOA FOR FUEL FOR FITNESS…

Chocolate Banana Loaf Cake

Yet again we are reading how good chocolate is for you.

A recent study published by the ‘Journal of Physiology’, showed that you can boost your workout with chocolate.

It revealed that ‘epicatechin’, an antioxidant compound found in cocoa, can reduce muscle fatigue, increase your endurance and therefore help your train for longer.

It can also help your muscles use oxygen more efficiently, keeping you fitter from the inside out.

Is there ‘nothing’ chocolate can’t help us with ? It’s just such a shame it puts weight on 🙂

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
