    I just read a research study that indicated that chronic fatigue sufferers improved after ingesting "high cocoa polyphenol rich chocolate" on a daily basis. Just exactly what is "high cocoa polyphenol chocolate"? I am guessing it might be dark chocolate--the darker, the more polyphenols. Am I right about this?

    kerrylea,

    The study involved 85% cocoa solids. There is already an ongoing thread on this study on this board, you can find it if you use the search box.

    You can also google 'raw chocolate' to get more info and to order (even 100%) cocoa for your own 'research'.

    Hi
    There was a message on this a little while ago.
    Basically the chocolate must contain 85% cocoa. It can be a little difficult to find.

    I also think that you only take about 2oz a day.

    Best to look up the previous post to get the full details.

    Best wishes
