Dear Dr. Mo: I’d like to know if there are any health benefits we can derive from eating chocolate?
I have already written in some detail about health benefits of chocolate so be sure to check it out.
Let me recap it here and add some fresh findings to support it.
Just recently, certain compounds in chocolate, called cocoa flavanols, have been linked with improved cognitive abilities, especially in aging individuals. It appears that regular flavanols consumption can turn a tide on some age-related thinking dysfunctions.
