Boost Your Brain Memory With Hot Chocolate by rubenic(m): 3:46pm On Aug 13, 2013
Good news for chocolate lovers! Now you have another point to justify your habit of drinking hot chocolate.

A recent survey has suggested that hot chocolate improves the memory. The survey included 60 people, who were aged around 73. These people drank two cups of hot chocolate every day for a month. It was found that brain flow of the participants, who had memory loss problem improved by 8.3%, which means better memory. However, participants without any cognitive issues did not show any change in their brain flow.

Around one third of total participants were suffering from memory issues and after this survey positive changes were found.

“There is a strong correlation between neurovascular coupling and cognitive function, and both can be improved by regular cocoa consumption,” said the article on this study.

However, the role of antioxidant flavanol is still unclear in this study. Half of the total surveyed people were given the beverage with antioxidant flavanol and rest half were given without it. But this did not made any change in the survey results.

Before this study, health benefits of dark chocolates have been suggested by many researches like preventing heart disease and lowering cholesterol.

However, the findings haven suggested that this effect would have long term benefits too. The detailed study and findings are published in the journal Neurology.
