Drink Hot Cocoa to Boost Your Brain Power

Read Transcript

Hi, I'm Dr. Miller, here with the delicious way to give your brain a boost – sip a nice mug of hot cocoa. Research shows that a few cups might help to increase the blood flow in your brain, and that means less brain fog and a low risk of dementia for you. In one study, older adults who drank a couple servings of cocoa everyday for two weeks got a 10% blood flow boost. How?

Flavanol-rich cocoas increase your level of nitric oxide, which helps your blood vessels dilate and relax, so they can deliver oxygen and nutrients to your brain. You can also enjoy these brain-boosting flavanols in tea and wine. So drink up and stay sharp.
