Dark Chocolate Helps Vision and Brain Function

Yes, it's true.  Turns out that dark chocolate can help improve eyesight and memory.  Researchers in England recently conducted a study that found daily consumption of a single dose of dark chocolate containing 720mg of cocoa flavanols was associated with improvements in visual and cognitive function.  It turns out that cocoa flavanols can increase blood flow to the brain and the eyes.

To find out more about preventing vision deterioration and cognitive decline, see your naturopathic doctor. A Nauropath can put together an individualized treatment plan that meets your health goals.

Yours in Health,
