Cacao Beans/Dark Chocolate

Chocolate is tricky when it comes to brain boosters. When the cacao bean is minimally processed it's packed full of antioxidants, flavonoids, catechins, and theobromine, which increases cognitive function and enhances mood. Most candy and chocolate bars contain low levels of cacao and the processing completely eliminates the healthy elements. If you want the most out of your chocolate choose 100% organic non-alkalized cocoa powder or high cacao percentage dark chocolate bars.
