Need an excuse to start eating chocolate? A new Journal Neurology study says chocolate may help keep your brain healthy and sharp. Sixty elderly individuals were recruited and were asked to drink two cups a day of either flavanol-rich or flavanol-poor hot chocolate.
According to the LA Times article, ” At the end of the 30 days, the team found that drinking hot chocolate benefited only the subjects who had poor cognitive and neurovascular function to begin with. After the hot cocoa regimen, those individuals showed an 8% improvement in blood flow and a roughly 1 minute faster reaction time on the cognitive task”. Just one more reason to eat dark chocolate!
