Hmm, if we only think of the black cocoa gold, our mouths start to water. After all, we do nothing better than to slide in such a delicious bar of chocolate. Or better yet, such a chocolate cake. Delicious! A minor drawback: chocolate would generally make you fatter, not good for your skin and so on. These negative connotations can sometimes drown out enjoyment. It’s not necessary. So eating dark chocolate would be good for your heart. That is by no means the only benefit of eating chocolate on your health. According to research, a chocolate cake in the morning benefits your health. Chill!
A chocolate cake in the morning is a worry-free day
Research has now shown that chocolate is not only good for your heart. Scientists state that chocolate has been used for longer for physical complaints, such as heart problems. However, the researchers expected that chocolate would also be good for your brain and your behavior. A total of 968 respondents were put to the test. A record was kept of the diet followed by respondents, including the eating of chocolate. No distinction was made between different types of chocolate. Finally, it was examined whether there was a relationship between eating chocolate more often and an improvement in various cognitive skills, such as abstract reasoning and spatial insight.
You guessed it, this relationship was positive. Eating chocolate more often means that you can function better cognitively! What is nice to know is that this relationship was not weakened by things like heart problems, your lifestyle and your diet. In other words, this relationship remains the same even if you drink alcohol or don’t exercise! We do, however, have some reservations about the investigation. It is unfortunate that only chocolate as a whole has been looked at, because different types of chocolate may have a different relationship with improving cognitive functionalities. It is also difficult to represent the findings of the study. Here and there, the researchers are somewhat vague about the research methods, but also when defining concepts, for example. Nevertheless, the results remain a fact and do not fall completely out of the blue.
Then why a chocolate cake in the morning
The results of this research do not just come out of the blue. In the discussion of the study you will find a number of other studies that have also shown such connections. But why do we state that a piece of chocolate cake in the morning means a day without worries? That is because there are advantages to eating chocolate in the morning. According to many, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. By starting here with chocolate, food that stimulates you cognitively, you start the day wonderfully. A chocolate cake also contains egg-shaped proteins, for example, which means an even more solid start to the day! And since you also start the day in a mouth-watering way, your day can’t go wrong. This article also states that some calories in the morning ensure that you don’t need it for the rest of the day. So you start eating less and are less hungry during the rest of the day. We said it anyway, do chocolate cake in the morning! And now we are hungry.
