You know I am always excited to learn about new studies on chocolate and cocoa flavanols. I enjoyed the review by Authors Valentina Socci and Michele Ferrara from the University of L’Aquila in Italy that was published in Frontiers in Nutrition on June 29th, 2017. It turns out that cognitive performance was improved by a daily intake of cocoa flavanols.”This result suggests the potential of cocoa flavanols to protect cognition in vulnerable populations over time by improving cognitive performance. If you look at the underlying mechanism, the cocoa flavanols have beneficial effects for cardiovascular health and can increase cerebral blood volume in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus. This structure is particularly affected by aging and therefore the potential source of age-related memory decline in humans.”

Eating cocoa flavanols long term seem to have a positive benefit not just on the elderly population and those have issues with cognition but also people that suffer from chronic sleep deprivation or work shifts. The potential of people that can benefit from the cocoa flavanols found in pure, healthy dark chocolate are substantial. It seems there are new studies coming out monthly about the health benefits of chocolate.

Just like you are careful what kind of food you eat, you need to be careful with your chocolate. All chocolate is not the same. Don’t go and grab a candy bar from your local store and assume you will get the benefits found in this study. What you want instead is high antioxidant, cocoa flavanol rich dark chocolate that does not have waxes, fillers and processed sugars like you find in even high end chocolates.

I love that Well Beyond Healthy Chocolate tastes amazing and is so good for you. What an amazing combination. I also love that our chocolates average 30-35 calories a piece except for the dark chocolate peanut butter cups which are just 90 calories. These chocolates can easily be incorporated into your diet.
