#1091: MM- Hot Chocolate May Help MS Symptoms

Are you a hot cocoa fan?  This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young medical minute.  If you suffer from multiple sclerosis, also known as MS, then hot cocoa may become your new best friend.  MS affects nearly 2.5 million people worldwide and causes muscle weakness, burning sensations, chronic pain, balance problems, impaired memory, and fatigue.  New research published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry found that drinking a cup of cocoa a day for six weeks decreased fatigue symptoms in people battling MS.  How?  Cocoa contains flavonoids, which are known to be a natural anti-inflammatory.  So, if you are struggling with MS or any other inflammatory disease, you may want to bring out the old hot cocoa mug.  This Stay Young Medical Minute is brought to you by Executive Medicine of Texas, a leader in preventative and proactive medicine.
