Effectiveness of Cocoa Powder on Selected Biophysiological Parameters of Hypertension

G. Grace Jebakani Sweety, Timsi Jain, N. Mohandas.

Abstract
Background: Hypertension is a life-threatening disease which involves not only the elevation of blood pressure but also the silent evolution of certain biophysiological parameters that paves a wide way towards halting the process of cardiovascular disorders in the near future. Cocoa powder, the naturally available food item aids in above said halting process as a single remedy.

Methods: Quantitative- true experimental study was conducted among ten hypertensive clients who were under regular treatment by simple random sampling and experimental group clients were provided 5 gram of cocoa powder in the morning every day for 90 days after assessing their selected biophysiological parameters. Pretest and posttest results of the experimental and control group were analysed statistically.

Results: There was a significant difference and reduction in all the physiological and biochemical parameters of hypertension between the pretest and posttest scores of experimental group with no significant difference in the control group.

Conclusion: Inspite of under regular hypertensive treatment, the clients with hypertension is having some elevation of parameters without their knowledge which will finally fit them in some critical cardiovascular issues. Cocoa powder has a wide range of beneficial effects thereby improving the compliance of the hypertensive clients.

Key words: Hypertension, Biophysiological Parameters, Cardiovascular Disorders, Cocoa Powder.
