Japanese researchers have discovered that regular cocoa consumption may prevent obesity and weight gain by regulating the genes involved in fat metabolism. The researchers fed two groups of rats different high – fat diets – one high in real cocoa and the other without the cocoa supplement. After 21 days, the researchers measured the white adipose fat weight and blood fat levels of each rat, as well as the gene expression profiles. Body weight, adipose fat weight and blood lipid levels were also lower in the cocoa group. It appears that chocolate helps to restrict fat metabolism and storage, while stimulating thermogenesis, or fat burning, in the body. Scientists concluded that cocoa flavanols can prevent weight gain and obesity related to a high-fat diet.
