Chocolate and the cocoa bean have been shown to be beneficial multiple times in the past and this week a major medical report shows once again just how beneficial it can be. By testing a number of senior citizens with cognitive ability issues the researchers managed to see a dramatic increase in cognitive abilities when cocoa was introduced.
The actual part of the cocoa bean that did the most was the flavanol, which was directly correlated to the increase in cognitive abilities. The improvement in cognitive functions was surprising according to researchers, and that is absolutely great news for millions of people. Cognitive abilities and skills are some of the most commonly lost abilities among senior citizens which is precisely why this news is so absolutely awesome.
News like this hasn’t come out in a while and many doctors feel that this will absolutely be amazing for seniors and even younger generations. Additional research is being conducted to determine whether some sort of medication could be made to serve the same purpose as cocoa. Additional research is also being conducted to determine whether or not consistent cocoa consumption might prevent the development of cognitive skills failure. Either way it is absolutely amazing news that such an impressive piece of research has come out that is going to drastically improve the lives of millions of older people worldwide.
