Need to study for a test? Concentrate on a task at work? just get some on chocolate before!
Although chocolate has suffered from particularly bad public relations over the years, it is important to know that it has proven health benefits that can make us concentrate on performing tasks and especially while learning.
Let's start with the source of all this goodness called the world of chocolate, the cocoa tree. The cocoa found in chocolate has been shown to improve mood and stimulate the building of new cells in the brain, especially in areas related to memory and learning, thanks to the special chemical composition of caffeine and antioxidants and the flavonoids in cocoa.
These flavonoids relevant especially in times of eating dark chocolate can help in dealing with cognitive challenges (puzzles, problems that require thinking, etc.).
Caffeine we said, right? so yes! While the small dose of caffeine in chocolate will not be enough to keep you awake and focused on a white night of learning before a test, it will certainly be enough to improve your concentration for the short term, for the next few hours of learning ahead of you.
Mood - yes, new cells in the brain - yes, some caffeine - yes! What else do you need? Relax!
Sometimes we have to concentrate just in time for stress, such that every second on a watch is critical. Being in such a state of stress can have the exact opposite effect and cause us to lack concentration, precisely when we need it the most. An important discovery in the field of this is that chocolate consumption can help to relax, thanks to the magnesium it contains. Magnesium is an important mineral which is often lacking in the diet daily for most people, and consumption of chocolate can provide the amount needed for our body and in that help us and to minimize the consequences of the negative pressure caused by, including a lack of concentration.
If all this good that chocolate causes are not enough, then in addition to that chocolate also improves blood flow to the brain thus increasing our attention, memory, reaction time and even improving our ability to solve problems more quickly and creatively.To summarize, next time you have a test to study for or an important task at work, take care of yourself with a chocolate delivery that will help you relax and you are set.
