At Pure Mill, chocolate and breakfast go hand in hand. Seems pretty counteractive, but science has given us the best excuse: Chocolate can boost your brain power.
Syracuse University researchers found that the consumption of chocolate was noticeably and positively associated with a variety of tests, including the Global Composite, Visual-Spacial Memory and Organization, Working Memory, Scanning and Tracking, and the Similarities tests, in addition to the MMSE (mini-mental state examination).
Say what? Well, in a nutshell, the cognitive scores were substantially higher for people who consume chocolate at least once per week, compared to people who rarely or never consume chocolate.
So, if we want to give brains a kickstart, breakfast time is the perfect time to do it. But we could eat chocolate anytime!
