Sweet medicine

Chocolate is not only a delicious treat, but also a remedy for fatigue and lack of concentration. Do you feel that you have exhausted your energy reserves and are unable to do anything else that day? Researchers from the University of Nottingham have good news. Researchers have shown that dark chocolate has a beneficial effect on circulation, which in turn improves mental abilities. Instead of reaching for another coffee, it is better to eat a cube of chocolate. You will gain better concentration and faster reflexes. These are short-term abilities, but researchers from Harvard University decided to focus on the effects of chocolate on dementia. The research group was made up of 60 elderly people who were given two cups of liquid chocolate each day. The results clearly indicated an improvement in the memory of the test subjects. Experts are further leaning on the matter, but the results of the study give hope that chocolate can help in the fight against dementia. What else do we owe to cocoa bean products? Thanks to chocolate, neurotransmitter levels increase. The increase in serotonin and endorphins makes a person feel less stressed and sad. This is a great way to expressly improve mood. At the same time, chocolate is rich in microelements such as magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium and calcium, as well as vitamins A, E, B2, B3, B6 and B12.
