Does Dark Chocolate Increase Stem Cell Production?

Dark chocolate is a treat enjoyed by millions of people across the world on a daily basis. It’s estimated that the average resident of the United States, for instance, consumes three chocolate bars a week – and more than one-third of Americans prefer dark chocolate over milk or white varieties.

Recent research suggests that there may be sound health reasons for consuming dark chocolate. Stem cells production can, it appears, be stimulated if you eat dark chocolate.

The experts responsible for a dark chocolate stems cells study reported that the raw cacao bean is one of nature’s most potent “superfoods”. Dark chocolate that contains 70-80% cacao or higher is rich in polyphenols and magnesium.

They also concluded that ingesting your daily ration of cacao through two cups of dark hot chocolate can double the number of stem cells in your blood stream at any time.

It has long been argued that dark chocolate, consumed in moderation, is a healthier snack than alternative chocolate varieties. Now, it seems, there is solid scientific proof that if you eat or drink dark chocolate, stem cells in your body will be far more numerous than in people who prefer other snacks or drinks.

How Stem Cells Support Healing and Quality of Life

Does dark chocolate increase stem cells? It would appear so. However, at the Stemwell Clinic, we have already discovered that a rich source of stem cells is the umbilical cord tissue of full-term, healthy volunteer mothers.

Stem cells are undifferentiated, or blank, cells. They have yet to be assigned a particular purpose in the body. That means they can be used in the regeneration of healthy tissue, and for their anti-inflammatory properties, both of which mean they can support the healing process and boost the quality of life of people with a wide range of physical conditions.

It will be interesting to see if future research draws a direct link between the consumption of dark chocolate and the number of stem cells found in umbilical cord tissue, as well as in the general blood stream.

Any substance that stimulates the increased production of stem cells deserves to be thought of as a force for good. Stem cells help the body to regenerate on a daily basis, as well as being applicable to courses of treatment such as those on offer at the Stemwell Clinic.
