Spanish scientists invited 47 volunteers aged 55 and over who had an increased risk of developing heart disease to take part in their experiments. Half of the subjects were given regular servings of skimmed milk along with 20-gram sachets of instant chocolate powder twice a day. The other half drank just skimmed milk without chocolate additives. A month later, checks were made.

From blood tests, it was found that people who drank chocolate milk, the level of some biomarkers of inflammation was many times lower than the rest of the participants. In addition, consumers of chocolate milk saw a sharp increase in the level of “good” HDL cholesterol. These studies are published in the November issue of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

"Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease of the arteries, and regular consumption of chocolate milk will help prevent or reduce the disease," said study author Dr. Ramon Estruh of the University of Barcelona.
