READ LABELS. • 1 tsp salt = 6 grams and contains about 2400 mg. of sodium (and 3600 mg. of chloride). • A flatware teaspoon is 2-3 x’s larger than a measuring teaspoon! • Recommendation: everyone reduce daily sodium intake to 2400 mg. • Those with high blood pressure get only a modest decrease @ 2400 mg • For significant results sodium to 1500 mg. a day.

  • 27. Chocolate Possibly Effective for Hypertension (Nat. Med.Database) Dark or milk chocolate 46-105 grams/day, -provides 213-500 mg of cocoa polyphenols, -modestly lowers systolic by 4.7 mmHg and -diastolic by 2.8 mmHg in normo- and hypertensive people.
  • 28. Chocolate Possibly Effective for Hypertension (Nat. Med.Database) Dark chocolate, 6.3 grams daily -provides 30 mg of polyphenols -decreases systolic by 2.9 mmHg and -decreases diastolic by 1.9 mmHg -consumed for 18 weeks by patients with pre- or mild hypertension
  • 29. Chocolate Myths Chocolate is high in caffeine. Fact: While eating chocolate may perk you up, A 1.4-ounce chocolate bar or an 8-ounce glass of chocolate milk both contain 6 mg of caffeine. (regular coffee contains about 65-135mg of caffeine.)
  • 30. Chocolate Myths Chocolate is loaded with saturated fat and is bad for your cholesterol. Fact: Stearic acid, the main saturated fat found in milk chocolate, is unique. It doesn’t raise cholesterol levels like other types of saturated fats. In fact, eating a 1.4 ounce chocolate bar instead of a carbohydrate-rich snack has been shown to increase HDL (good) cholesterol levels.
  • 31. Chocolate Myths Chocolate lacks any nutritional value. Fact: Chocolate is a good source of magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. It also contains polyphenols (an antioxidant also found in tea and red wine) that have been associated with a decreased risk of coronary disease. An average chocolate bar contains about the same amount of antioxidants as a 5-ounce glass of red wine.
  • 32. Chocolate Myths Chocolate causes cavities. Fact: Candy alone is not responsible for cavities. Cavities are formed when bacteria in the mouth metabolize sugars and starches from any type of food (soda, candy, juice, bread, rice and pasta) to produce acid. This acid then eats through the enamel of the tooth, causing a cavity.
  • 33. Chocolate Myths Myth: Chocolate causes acne. Fact: Studies in the past twenty years have eliminated chocolate as a cause of acne. In fact, many dermatologists doubt that diet plays any significant role in the development of acne. Acne is now believed to be caused by a combination of high bacterial levels and oil on the skin
  • 34. Chocolate Myths Chocolate causes weight gain. Fact: Any food can be part of a healthy diet if consumed in moderation. An average chocolate bar contains 220 calories, and 15 grams of fat. Enjoying the occasional piece of chocolate may reduce the risk of severe bingeing, which can occur when you feel deprived of your favorite foods.
