Get ready to load up on some Hot Chocolate!! According to a new study apparently drinking this yummy, holiday drink makes you smarter.
According to reports
"In a study of 18 men,researchers at the University of Birmingham found that drinking cocoa improved participants’ ability to quickly solve a series of complex mental tests. The team chalked up the heightened sharpness — including that subjects finished tests up to 11 percent faster — to the brain-boosting compound flavanol, which is found naturally in chocolate, according to the study, published Tuesday in the journal Scientific Reports."
"The team found that after drinking hot chocolate, participants’ blood oxygenation levels increased up to threefold, and that their test times and accuracy rates improved."
This is a lot of science going on here but honestly, but to me Hot Chocolate just makes me happier because it's so yummy!
