Cocoa is Good for You

A Harvard Medical School study ( in collaboration with leading chocolate manufacturers ) have found that flavanols ( biological active substances ) in cocoa can boost blood flow to important areas of the brain.

These flavanols are found in very low concentrations in milk and white chocolate as well as chocolate covered bars. Eating small amounts of dark chocolate after a meal and using cocoa in hot milk and puddings would be a healthier way of eating  these cocoa flavanols.
