Chocolate Improves Memory?! Sure, that's why we love it...

March 14, 2021 - 5:28pm -- Diablo Women's ... (not verified)

A small study shows that an antioxidant in chocolate appears to improve some memory skills that people lose as they age. Reported in the New York Times, the study followed healthy people, ages 50 to 69, who drank a mixture high in antioxidants called cocoa flavanols for three months. 

The cocoa-positive results?  Those who drank cocoa flavanols performed better on a memory test than people who drank a low-flavanol mixture.

Researchers caution that you have to eat a lot of chocolate to equal the amount of cocoa flavenols in the mixture consumed by study participants. 

We don't see a down side here...
