Compound in Cocoa Significantly Cuts Risk of Diseases

Researcher says epecatechin discovery as important as penicillin

March 12, 2007 – A compound found in cocoa, epecatechin, is believed to have reduced the risk of four of the five most common killer diseases among senior citizens to less than 10 percent among the Kuna people of Panama. The health benefits are so striking that the Harvard medical professor who has studied the effect for years says this could rival penicillin and anesthesia in importance to public health.

Norman Hollenberg, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, also told Chemistry & Industry writer Marina Murphy that epicatechin is so important that it should be considered a vitamin.

Hollenberg has spent years studying the benefits of cocoa drinking on the Kuna people and says he has found that the risk of common killer diseases: stroke, heart failure, cancer and diabetes, is reduced to less then 10% in the Kuna.

This reduction in cardiovascular risk is extremely important new for senior citizens. Over 83 percent of people who die of coronary heart disease are 65 or older.

He reports these people may drink up to 40 cups of cocoa a week. Natural cocoa has high levels of epicatechin, which is a flavonoid. Flavonoids are most commonly known for their antioxidant activity – the obstruction to oxidation of other chemicals.

Oxidation reactions can involve the production of free radicals, which can form dangerous chain reactions. Antioxidants can terminate these chain reactions by removing radical intermediates and can inhibit other oxidation reactions by being oxidized themselves.

Flavanols like epicatechin are removed for commercial cocoas because they tend to have a bitter taste, reports Murphy. So there is huge scope for nutritional companies to develop epicatechin supplements or capsules

Epicatechin is also found in teas, wine, chocolate and some fruit and vegetables.

"If these observations predict the future, then we can say without blushing that they are among the most important observations in the history of medicine," Hollenberg says.

"We all agree that penicillin and anesthesia are enormously important. But epicatechin could potentially get rid of 4 of the 5 most common diseases in the western world, how important does that make epicatechin? ... I would say very important."

Nutrition expert Daniel Fabricant says that Hollenberg"s results, although observational, are so impressive that they may even warrant a rethink of how vitamins are defined. Epicatechin does not currently meet the criteria.

Vitamins are defined as essential to the normal functioning, metabolism, regulation and growth of cells and deficiency is usually linked to disease. At the moment, the science does not support epicatechin having an essential role.

But, Fabricant, who is vice president scientific affairs at the Natural Products Association, says: "the link between high epicatechin consumption and a decreased risk of killer disease is so striking, it should be investigated further. It may be that these diseases are the result of epicatechin deficiency," he says.

Currently, there are only 13 essential vitamins. An increase in the number of vitamins would provide significant opportunity for nutritional companies to expand their range of products.

For more homeopathic remedies I recommend Dr. Whitaker. People from all over the world come to his institute and his website is at w w w * drwhitaker * com.

I flew my 83 year old father out here to see him (he thought he had 6 months to live) and now he feels great and swears the Dr. saved his life. He believes in natural remedies for ailments and really turned my father around.

Lovin-Robin - as far as consuming Aloe internally.... many people swear by it. Most health stores carry it. My dad use to drink it for years and I have on occasion.

What substance are the state of the art national burn centers now using to treat burns instead of antibiotic ointment these days? It will shock you!!! It is raw honey. Apparently raw honey (make sure it states raw on the label) is always sterile because no known organism can live in it. Burn centers are now covering burns in honey to speed healing. So, the next time you get an open cut or burn....don't grab the ointments in your medicine cabinet... use your honey instead.

Any luck Poly?

What would I do if I had chronic pain in my foot and no one could give me explanations..... I would seek a specialist in Bioelectric & Auricular Therapy. The man who is best at it is Darrell Stoddard and his website has endorsements by neurosurgeons & orthopedic surgeons. w w w*painfreeforlife*com

I would also do a Candida cleanse...see w w w*lifeforceplan*com and make sure I got 10 glasses of distilled water a day.

I use almost exclusively homeopathic remedies. I would have to be on death's door in the hospital to use traditional medicines.

I have a chronic health problem and need to "detox" my "entire" body. Everytime I look in a heath food store or speak to someone they have the "miracle" de-tox. I've been warned a "de-tox" can make me worst before I get better. I've been so overwhelmed...I've done nothing. Lately I read about an "aloe" detox that's for people but was being recommended for birds. Birds are extremely sensitive so this product must be mild. I use aloe for many other things and am aware of it's benefits. I've never actually "consumed" it as part of my "internal" health regiment. Can anyone give me information on the value of consuming "aloe", efficiency of it as a detox, and what form or brand name is good? Thanks Robin
