Cocoa powder or seeds may help control blood pressure

 Using cocoa seeds or powder made from natural herbs has been found to help manage blood pressure and lessen artery stiffness, according to a recent small-scale study by British scientists.

Chocolate, coffee, tea leaves, ice cream, drinks, and even pharmaceuticals frequently contain cacao seeds or powder.

Cocoa powder  help control blood pressure


It is the edible seeds of a rare tree that are cooked in the heat of the sun to produce cocoa powder or these seeds are processed by modern machinery. It is also known as cacao or cacao, but it is more often known as cocoa. It is turned into powder and utilised in both food and medicine.

The health-promoting qualities of cocoa, which comprises over 300 different chemicals, include antioxidants, vitamin K and E, protein, calcium, sodium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus, iron, and magnesium. They are regarded as superior in many ways.

Because of this, British researchers have tried to revisit the qualities of cocoa to determine how it affects blood pressure and other conditions related to the heart.

According to "Healthline," a study was carried out by British researchers on a small number of volunteers. Twelve people were divided into two groups; one group received "cocoa," while the other received artificial capsules. Throughout the study's several weeks, all participants were monitored frequently.

Three hours after feeding, the volunteers were checked by the professionals, and then they were given access to these tests as well. The volunteers' heart rates, blood pressure, and arterial health were evaluated by experts, who discovered that those who consumed cocoa had normalised blood pressure and reduced artery stiffness.

Experts came to the conclusion that eating meals rich in "cocoa" can help lower blood pressure and keep arteries from becoming too rigid.

A person with blood pressure that is already under control or low may experience problems with it if they consume foods that contain "cocoa," according to doctors.

Further study on the relationship between eating foods containing cocoa and blood pressure and heart disease was also recommended by experts.

OnePlus 10T launched in India


OnePlus has unveiled the new OnePlus 10T flagship in India today . How is it equipped and priced?



OnePlus 10T is a flagship, but not entirely. The smartphone has an interesting style, nice interior, but not necessarily impressive cameras. It's a model for someone who will benefit more from high performance than from advanced photography options. OnePlus 10Tcomes in two colors: Moonstone Black and Jade Green. Both have a matte finish on the rear panels, while the darker version has a subtle "diamond" sheen. In both variants, the main attention is focused on the characteristic and not bad camera frame. It houses the main Sony IMX766 module with a resolution of 50 Mpx, matrix size 1 / 1.56, enriched with a double image stabilization system - optical and digital (OIS + EIS). Next to it there is an 8-megapixel wide-angle module with a field of view of 119.9 degrees and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The 16 Mpx front camera is responsible for the selfie.

So, as you can see, the proposed photographic set fits more to a decent medium than a flagship - unlike the rest of the design. It is based on the Snapdragon 8+ gen1 processor, combined with LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 memories. This gives a really high performance, which resulted in a record result in the AnTuTu benchmark . The power supply is provided by a two-piece battery with a capacity of 4800 mAh with 150-watt charging. OnePlus 10T also received a decent 6.7-inch AMOLED Full HD + display, with LTPO 2.0 technology and adjustable image refreshing in the range of 1-120 Hz. Everything works under the control of the Android 12 operating system with the Oxygen OS interface.

The pricing and memory versions in India are as follows:


8 + 128 GB - 50 thousand. rupees, 625 USD

12 + 256 GB - 55 thousand. rupees, 689 USD

European prices may turn out to be slightly higher, and the smartphone itself is also to appear in China as OnePlus Ace Pro . The premiere in China was to take place today, in parallel with the Indian one, but due to the tension around Taiwan, it was postponed to an undefined date. The same thing happened with the premiere of Motorola Razr 2022 and Moto X30 Pro planned for yesterday ...

Scientists have learned another secret of Covid-19



This was revealed in a medical study in the UK / file photo


Scientists have discovered 3 types of pneumonia and each type has its own symptoms.

This was revealed in a new medical study in the UK.

The term long-covid is used for patients who continue to experience various symptoms for several weeks or months even after defeating covid.

Long-covid patients experience a variety of symptoms, with research from King's College London discovering 3 different types.

One type is related to the nervous system, the second to the respiratory system while the third is related to physical symptoms.

The study also explored the pattern of long-term covid among people infected with different types of coronavirus.

The data show that the various long-term problems after the initial illness are not just one disorder, but several subtypes of it, the researchers said.

Understanding the causes of these subtypes can also help guide treatment strategies, he said.

The study analyzed data from 1,459 people who had symptoms up to 12 weeks after the initial illness.

The researchers discovered various symptoms in the nervous system of these individuals, such as fatigue, brain fog and headache, which were more common in people infected with the alpha and delta corona types.

In the second group, respiratory symptoms such as chest pain and difficulty breathing were discovered, indicating lung damage.

These symptoms were more common in patients who became ill with the original virus in the spring of 2020.

The third group consisted of patients who showed a variety of physical symptoms, including changes in heart rate, muscle pain, and changes in skin and hair.


The most serious long-term complications in this group were found in multiple organs, the researchers said.


The study found that people with or without vaccination had similar rates of L. covid types, but that the risk was somewhat reduced after vaccination.


Machine learning technology has made it possible to detect symptoms of long-term covid, the researchers said.

He said that this has opened up new avenues for understanding Covid-19 and research to prevent its long-term effects.

The results of the study have not yet been published in a medical journal, but were released on the preprint server MedRxiv.
