Chocolate 'helps chronic fatigue'1st October 2007
Researchers have found that a daily dose of specially-formulated dark chocolate could help cut the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
A pilot study found that patients had less fatigue when eating dark chocolate with a high cocoa content than with white chocolate dyed brown.
The research team from Hull York Medical School said the results were surprising but dark chocolate may be having an effect on the brain chemical serotonin. CFS, also known as ME, has a diverse range of symptoms but is particularly characterised by profound muscle fatigue after physical exertion.
