Did you know that eating or drinking chocolates especially dark chocolates have some good benefits on your brain? This is the result of the studies that was conducted by Professor Ian Macdonald of University of Nottingham.
According to the research, regular consumption of cocoa drink can improve blood flow to key areas of the brain in just a matter of two to three hours. This is possible because cocoa is rich in flavanols which is known to be a good stimulant to boost the production of endorphins that improve focus and concentration.
On the other hand, milk chocolates has been known to be capable of improving verbal and visual memory as well as to enhance impulse control and reaction time of your brain. So it is not true that chocolates can only make you fat and prone to pimples because sensible eating of chocolates or indulging in a cup of hot cocoa drink as you review or study can boost your brain performance.
