ChocoNat™ chocolate can help to supports memory and concentration.
A delicious serving for mental potection. That would be one way to describe ChocoNat™ chocolate. The cocoa flavanols present in our chocolate are a powerful source of protection, helping to keep your powers of concentration and memory in top condition. Better brain performance is promoted by increased cerebral blood flow. The cocoa flavanols in cocoa and chocolate ensure a good supply of oxygen and energy to the entire body, including the brain.
This provides good support for memory and concentration. A welcome effect, especially as we grow older. This specific health benefit has shown in at least 3 independent human studies on cocoa and chocolate. Did you know that a small amount of raw dark chocolate or Acti-cacao raw ground improves your concentration after already 2 hours?* *in combination with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
