Chocolate antioxidants boost memory

October 28th, 2014 by Rosa

The NY Times has a nice summary of a new neuroscience study finding that drinking a mixture high in chocolate antioxidants improved memory in older adults (aged 50 to 69).

 

It sounds like awesome news for chocolate lovers – our chocolate habits are good for our brains! – except that you’d have to eat 7 full-sized chocolate bars a day to match the antioxidant levels that the people in the study were getting. That’s a lot, even for a candy blogger like me.
