Eating Chocolate Makes You Smarter – Study

A new study has revealed that consumption of
chocolate is positively associated with cognitive
brain function.
The study, published in the journal Appetite,
measured the dietary intake, cognitive function,
and cardiovascular risk factors of 968 people
between the ages of 23 and 98.
It concluded that the regular consumption of
chocolate had a significant positive effect on
cognitive function.
Habitual eating of chocolate was "significantly
associated with better performance on
[cognitive tests including] visual-spatial memory
and [organization], working memory, scanning
and tracking, abstract reasoning, and the mini-
mental state examination."

The researchers concluded that he reason for
chocolate's positive effects on the brain are due
to the cocoa flavanols found inside the sweet
treat.
Dark chocolate has the highest levels of
flavanols, while milk and white chocolate have
significantly fewer.
The research also found that flavonols's positive
association with cognitive function may also
protect against regular cognitive decline due to
aging.
