Scientists recommend daily use of cocoa beverage to improve memory.
The flavanols in cocoa increase blood flow to the brain and thus can prevent senile dementia, cognitive disorders and stroke.
Doctors have studied the effect of compositions of cocoa on cognitive skills of the elderly 59-83 years.
Regular consumption of chocolate drink during the week, 8% had increased cerebral blood flow. If you drink cocoa for a long period, you can slow down age-related cognitive impairment and protect the brain from dementia and improve the operation of the vessels throughout the body, say the neurologists.
Cocoa flavanols have positive effects on the function of circulating blood and the circulatory system vessels, providing protection against not only cardiovascular complications but also against cognitive problems and skin diseases, say U.S. doctors.
According to physicians from Harvard University, biomedical potential of cocoa is not so much in its antioxidant power as in the ability to enhance blood circulation to the organs.
