Chocolate is good for your brain!

Good news –  Cocoa Flavanols, found in chocolate, causes increased blood flow to the brain…

…except “Flavanols are not only found in chocolate with a high cocoa content“, which rules out most of the American Variety, which is mostly sugar (yes, folks, there is a difference between Chocolate and Candy).

…and that “the level of cocoa flavanol used in the study is not available commercially“, which means that you cannot buy a chocolate strong enough to make a difference.

The headline giveth, the small print taketh away. Sigh.
