Chocolate, which we often consume with great pleasure but regret for fear of gaining weight later, was found to have a significant effect on brain development.
The study, conducted at the University of South Australia, examined the impact of chocolate consumption on brain function. In the tests, tests were carried out on the memory, concentration and problem solving abilities of the participants. Tests revealed that those who consumed chocolate at least once a week performed better than those who did not.
The reason for this was due to the flavanon substance, which is considered an antioxidant found in chocolate. Flavanol, also found in citrus fruits, tea and wine, is known to lower the risk of dementia, heart disease and cancer.
But experts warn chocolate lovers that this miracle substance is more in dark chocolate than milk and white chocolate.
