Experts explained eating chocolate could improve brain’s quality

"The study on human subjects that we have done measures brain waves after eating only half a bar of standard size or 48 grams of chocolate. Chocolate type used is dark chocolate" said Dr. Lee Berk, PH, quoted from Reader's Digest.

The benefit of chocolate will be obtained immediately after the first bite thanks to the hormone serotonin and dopamine which increases when eating chocolate and turns out to be able to change the mood when chocolate is absorbed in the bloodstream which produces pleasure. Chocolate contains phenylethylamine, a compound called 'love medicine' because it creates a brain break that is similar to falling in love.

According to neurosurgeon expert Darlene Mayo, MD, the types of benefits obtained from chocolate can differ depending on the type. Dark chocolate which contains at least 85 percent of cocoa specifically increases chemicals in the brain that make you feel better, reduce anxiety and depression.

White chocolate can increase the level of dopamine in the brain and various other levels of chocolate also have good benefits for brain intelligence. In addition, chocolate also has long-term benefits because the substance Flavonol in chocolate plays a role in improving mood. Many health benefits from eating in moderate amounts include reducing inflammation, reducing blood sugar, and lowering bad cholesterol levels.
