Greater Physical Fitness Through Chocolate, Tea and Berries
Flavonoids are present in nearly every plant. But their concentration is particularly high in cocoa beans, blueberries or green tea. These are real superfoods: They not only inhibit inflammation and lower blood pressure, but they also reduce the risk of cancer.
But why is the use of flavonoids so important for runners and fitness enthusiasts? They prevent blood clots and strengthen blood vessels. They promote circulation and thus speed up recovery after an extensive workout. Also, blueberries, chocolate and company boost the immune system – definitely a plus during the cold time of the year!
