A scientific study concluded that chocolate contains an antioxidant, which helps improving memory skills. On Sunday, this small study stated that chocolate could help the memory skills of those who lose it with time.
The Nature Neuroscience journal had a small study on some physically fit people aging from 50 to 69, who were offered a high antioxidant mixture known as the cocoa flavanols for a period of three months. The results they shown in a memory test were much better from those who had mixture with low flavanol.
In whole, the high flavanol drinkers were two three decades newer in terms of memory measures. The study’s senior author Dr. Scott A. Small is a neurologist at the Medical Center of Columbia University. The group given chocolate performed 25% good than the group who drank low-flavanol. The neurobiologist at University of California, Dr. Craig Stark said, “An exciting result. It’s an initial study, and I sort of view this as the opening salvo.” He further added, “And look, it’s chocolate. Who’s going to complain about chocolate?”
But don’t think that all the chocolates available in the stores are ok for it. the chocolate makers use alkalization and ditching to make chocolate which work as a poison for flavanol. So better eat chocolate with all its calories and fats, and it is found in dark chocolates easily.
