- Story: Joe Obeng Yeboah -

The Chief Pharmacist of Cocoa Clinic, Dr. Edward Amporful has bemoaned Ghanaians' low patronage of cocoa consumption, noting that consuming cocoa products could be the game changer in one's health.  

"Only 520 grams of cocoa is consumed by Ghanaians, this is serious"he stressed. He made this revelation at Sunyani at the Cocoa Producers' Alliance Day to mark the beginning of the new cocoa crop season.

Dr. Ampofo stated that apart from the wealth that cocoa creates, it has the capacity to also boost the health of consumers.

 He noted that research has proven that cocoa consumption provides the most powerful dietary antioxidant and also reduces blood pressure.

 Quite apart from that, the Chief Pharmacist said cocoa consumption has the capacity to fight dental decay, minimises discomfort and excruciating pain associated with menstrual periods.

 According to Dr. Ampofo,cocoa consumption could also prevent stroke, since it improves blood circulation.

 " Notwithstanding the points I have mentioned,consuming cocoa products can also protect blood vessels and help to fight anemia. I wish to implore you to consume more cocoa products for aphrodisiac effects and also boost your sense of well being" he opined.
