Changing Families - Can eating chocolate make your mind sharper?


CHANGING FAMILIES - Here's another reason to indulge in Chocolate. A recent study featured in the Journal Appetite says Chocolate intake has been linked to superior cognitive health.

Experts led by Dr. Georgina Crichton, postdoctoral research fellow at the University of South Australia, decided to seek a potential correlation between chocolate intake and brain power.

It was determined that people who favor chocolate tend to score higher at cognitive tests, regardless of what other food items they may consume on a daily basis. They found chocolate eaters had superior lateral thinking and visual spatial skills, a higher capacity for learning and greater alertness.

The study only alludes to the fact that consuming chocolate on a regular basis may be associated with an improvement in vital cognitive functions, without proving it's the cause.
