Abstract

For centuries dark chocolate has been known for its taste as well as its beneficial effects on health. Mainly polyphenols, a heterogeneous group of molecules, have been associated with antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties. Furthermore they inhibit primary hemostasis and pathways associated with platelet activation and aggregation.
