If you can satisfy your chocolate craving and improve your cognitive functioning, wouldn’t you like to know that? Well, according to Harvard physician Robert Shmerling, there is some, but not conclusive, evidence that this may be so. Dark chocolate and cocoa contain flavanols, plant-based substances that act as anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants. Other foods, including many fruits and vegetables, also contain flavanols, which is why they are essential to a healthy aging diet. Unfortunately, chocolates can also contain sugars and high calories, so gorging on them to improve your cognitive clarity may not always be the best idea. However, as Dr. Shmerling notes, there is evidence that those places where there is the most chocolate consumption also have the most Nobel laureates.
