Enhance your cognition with cocoa flavonoids


ūü߆ Cocoa flavanols protect humans against vascular disease.

.

The study, “Dietary flavanols improve cerebral cortical oxygenation and cognition in healthy adults“ published recently in Scientific reports shows that the consumption of cacoa flavanols enhance brain function by boosting blood flow, which is associated with cognitive and cerebrovascular benefits.

.

After ingesting the cocoa flavanols, participants performed better on the challenging cognitive tests. They were able to correctly solve problems 11% faster than they did at baseline or when they consumed cocoa with reduced flavanols.

.

ūüćęDark chocolate is rich in flavanols, iron, copper, magnesium, zinc, and phosphorous. Flavanols support the production of nitric oxide in the endothelium that helps to relax the blood vessels and improve blood flow, lowering blood pressure.

.

Chocolate is good for your brain. The higher the cacao content and the purer the chocolate is, the more nutrients, flavonols, and antioxidants it has ūüôĆ

.

Apart from flavanols chocolate contains also other interesting molecules, like:

‚≠źÔłŹtryptophan which is linked to the production and release of serotonin (a neurotransmitter associated with a reduction in anxiety and feelings of happiness‚Ā£)

‚≠źÔłŹanandamide which gives you a feeling of well-being‚Ā£

‚≠źÔłŹtheobromine that acts as a weak stimulant (similar to coffee)

‚≠źÔłŹphenylethylamine which has antidepressant effects

.

Enjoy a square (or 2) of chocolate today!! It's good for your brain.
