Make mine a Double!!
2 Cups of Hot Chocolate A Day Keeps The Mind Young and Fit!!
A study out of Harvard Medical School is supporting all of our chocolate addictions. Eat, Drink and Be Merry… it’s a marvelous day when we’re told to indulge in the chocolate delights! The study has shown significant cognitive memory retention in dementia patients after a 30 day Hot Chocolate binge. The reason?The brain needs more energy to complete it’s tasks, they also need greater blood flow. The cocoa dramatically increases the neuromuscular coupling between the blood flow and the brains ability to convert this into energy. The result: more blood flow to more energy = more capacity for memory retention. It’s like a powerful workout for your brain. The study went on to show a large collation between Nobel Peace Prize winnings and their consumption for the delicious treat. Neurology.org did an abstract study that concluded there is a strong correlation between neurovascular coupling and cognitive function, and both can be improved by regular cocoa consumption in individuals with baseline impairments. Better neurovascular coupling is also associated with greater white matter structural integrity.
