Chocolate For Improved Concentration

    Great write up, again!

    I was reviewing the various blogs written and have been doing tons of research on what foods provide the most flavonoids. It looks like chocolate (cacao) extract still exceeds that of any fruit of vegetable for actual flavonoid content. For people looking to control sugar intake, cocoa extract in a form of a supplement would be ideal without the sugar or the fat, typically associated with eating chocolate… even though we all love some good chocolate here and there!

    I’d love to hear your thoughts. thanks.
