    Health Notes

    The Bright Side of Dark Chocolate

    The Bright Side of Dark Chocolate
    The Bright Side of Dark Chocolate 
: Main Image
    Researchers found that those eating dark chocolate performed significantly better on cognitive and vision tests
    Chocolate is no longer considered a diet-busting indulgence-as long as it's the dark variety. Studies have shown heart health benefits and now we can add better vision and clearer thinking to the list of advantages we may gain by enjoying this favorite treat (in moderation).

    Capturing chocolate's benefits

    Researchers invited 30 healthy, college students to participate in a study to examine the effects of chocolate on vision and thinking (cognitive) abilities. For the first portion of the study, half of the participants ate a single serving of dark chocolate, while the other half ate white chocolate. For the second portion of the study, the groups switched to the other type of chocolate, and for one week in between, participants ate no chocolate at all.

    Everyone in the study completed tests of visual function and thinking ability approximately two hours after eating 35 grams (1.25 ounces) of dark or white chocolate. The researchers found that those eating dark chocolate performed significantly better on these tests than those eating white chocolate:

    • Contrast sensitivity: The ability to distinguish an object from its background
    • Visual motion detection: The ability to determine the direction of motion of objects in an image
    • Spatial memory: The ability to remember types and arrangements of shapes in an image, specific features of your physical environment, and where you are within that environment
    • Reaction time: Tested by how quickly a person could press one of three buttons on a computer keyboard in response to letters or numbers that appeared on the screen

    Why color matters

    Dark chocolate contains dozens of nutrients called flavonols and health experts theorize that dark chocolate improves brain function because flavonols improve blood flow to the brain. This study supports this hypothesis: that improvements in visual and thinking ability after eating dark chocolate indicate this food may improve brain function. White chocolate does not contain these healthful nutrients.

    These tips for enjoying dark chocolate just may give your brain that extra edge to power through the toughest mental tasks, without expanding your waistline.

    • Stick to chocolate that is 60% (or greater) cocoa. Skip the candy bars. Dark chocolate, not milk chocolate, is a source of healthful flavonols.
    • Exercise portion control. 1 or 2 ounces of chocolate-just a few squares-is enough to reap potential health benefits of this food. Smaller portions will help you avoid overdoing it and gaining weight.
    • Drink up. Dark chocolate cocoa, which you can make at home with pure dark cocoa powder, a teaspoon of sugar, and skim, soy, rice, or almond milk, offers another way to get this healthy treat into your diet when the temperatures drop.
    • Feast on flavonols. If you want additional (or alternative) low-calorie options for boosting flavonols in your diet, try yellow onions, scallions, kale, broccoli, apples, berries, and green and black tea, all of which contain similar nutrients to those found in dark chocolate.

          Comments about MuscleTech® Anabolic Halo® - Chocolate:

          Anabolic Halo is an all-in-one shake designed to provide the benefits of 7 separate drinks. Most relevant to me and my usual supplement regimen are 20g of protein, 3g BCAAs, 2.5g Creatine, and 10g of carbs all in one scoop. Anabolic Halo also provides glutamine, electrolytes, and tart cherry concentrate, which has been shown to help reduce DOMS. Yeah it's a pretty expensive supplement, but it does cover so many bases and ultimately it will save you money if you usually buy all or most of the types of supplements that Anabolic Halo replaces.

          Smell Test:
          I had a hard time placing this, but I think it smells like oats and cookie dough mixed together. Very pleasant and not overpowering at all. Unlike some other supplements, Anabolic Halo's smell will not fill the room after you open the tub.

          Mixability:
          Using 4oz of skim milk and a blender bottle, I had absolutely no trouble getting Anabolic Halo to mix thoroughly. Just a few shakes and my work was done. The label suggests mixing 1 scoop with 6oz of water, but I prefer thicker milk shakes. It does mix thicker than many other proteins and I think it's comparable to Phase8 in that regard. No clumps, no residue, and very little foaming, which I think is pretty incredible considering all the different things that come in one scoop. Sometimes it's hard just to get protein and creatine to mix well, let alone all the other goodies Anabolic Halo has to offer!

          Taste and Texture:
          The tub I have is Vanilla, which tastes like a vanilla gingerbread cookie. I'm typically more of a chocolate protein guy, but as far as vanilla goes, Anabolic Halo is right up at the top. Even though it's a relatively thick shake, it goes down smooth and doesn't get stuck to the side of the shaker bottle. There is a little bit of an aftertaste, but it's tolerable... even for someone like me who has a very strong preference for chocolate. If you're a vanilla guy/girl, you definitely have to give this a shot.

          Overall:
          I've had this tub for about a week now and it has definitely helped reduce my DOMS (frequency and intensity) and overall recovery time. Since I've only been using it for a short time, I can't really comment about it's efficacy as a "lean muscle building" product, but the recovery formula does seem to work. Secondly, the profile is hard to beat. There aren't a lot of products out there that offer so many different benefits. Beyond that, Anabolic Halo tastes great and mixes well too. And even though many of us take simple things like that for granted, they are worth mentioning because a bad tasting/poor mixing product is about as bad as it gets. The last thing I want to talk about is the price. Yes, $50 is a lot for 32 servings, but you're really getting 32 servings of multiple supplements because of Anabolic Halo's huge profile. So not only can it act as a replacement for a lot of the supplements some people have in their stash, it can also be a one stop type of deal for beginners who don't know a lot about supplements, but want to cover all of their bases with one convenient scoop.

            I use two scoops of Anabolic Halo everyday after my workout. It really packs on muscle. It is by far the best post-workout protien I have ever tried.It is a bit expensive for the amount you get, but the results are well worth the cost. After just a half tub, I can already see increased size and definition all over my body. Taking this along with Phase8 in the morning and before bed really help add slabs of lean muscle.

              This has to be one of the best post work out supplements on the market. One servings of Halo is like stacking 3 different products! The taste is outstanding and mixes nicely. I noticed my recovery time was also shortened. Safe to say MuscleTech is on to something with the new Halo!

                  As always MUSCLETECH delivers what they promise. Anabolic Halo is better than before with excellent taste, great mix ability and great quality of the protein and carbohydrates. I recommend it for those trying to get lean or just to cover their protein requirements with a great source of protein, carbohydrates that contain a great amount of amino acids, creatine and all the formulation for recuperation after work out. After 5 days on Anabolic Halo, I started to recuperate faster and get more strength in all my lifts, so keep Anabolic Halo in your Arsenal for better performance.
                  I give it 10 out of 10.

                    Comments about MuscleTech® Anabolic Halo® - Chocolate:

                    This is a pretty comprehensive formula. Anabolic Halo takes 7 of the top factors for recovery and mass building and puts them all into one complete post-recovery shake! You want whey protein? Antioxidants? Creatine? BCAAs? Both quck and slow-release carbs? Electrolytes? How about glutamine? It's all in there!I think it's underdosed for one scoop. Most people will have to use two to get Halo's full effects. Other than that, like I said, it looks dang good.

                    Mixability--I put in in a blender with 12 oz of milk and it mixed right up into a smooth frothy delight. No side clingers and no grit in the bottom of the bottle. Gotta give that a 10/10!

                    Taste--Oh my...This is the closest thing I've had to a good piece of dark chocolate in shake form. I think it's even better than Nitro-Tech. It started off as a creamy chocolate. That gave way to a sweet smokiness and then that faded into a stronger ot chocolate kind of flavor. Man, it's been a while since I've had a chocolate shake

                    PRICE: 10/10 Especially at the sale price right now this supplement is a must buy and will remain in my collection of supplements!

                    TASTE: 6/10 This was the only part of the supplement I was not happy with was the taste not so good but oh well who really buys a supplement for the taste anyways!

                    OVERALL: 9/10 My overall experience was good and I will buy again, hopefully a better flavor comes out soon!

                    Comments about MuscleTech® Anabolic Halo® - Chocolate:

                    I received a free full jug of this from MuscleTech as a trial. My review is what I noticed about the product. I used 2 scoops each time post workout. Because I wanted higher carbs then Halo had I tried both adding extra to the shake and not.

                    Taste: The taste was very good and actually chocolate like in taste.

                    Mix: Mixes well, but seems to leave a film residue in my shakers. not a problem but sometimes they sit in my gym bag for a day or more and have to soak to wash.

                    Texture: The powder seems to be very fine and not granular at all. I use baby formula things for single servings and it pours out nice, no clumping other problem.

                    This product worked well for my current needs of post shake contents. It had sufficient protein, most of the carbs, creatine, amino acids, glutamine and some bonus electrolytes. I did have to add a little to it to hit my desired numbers, but thats OK. I would rather have to add then not be able to use due to too much.

                    My only problem is its claim to replace all of those things in my supplement stack. Not going to happen for me, but an average person I would imagine should see some benefit to using this in place of another protein. I say that since I currently use all ingredients in my "home made" shakes just in different amounts.

                    While using I did not notice any digestive issues associated with it. And I have of other products, even MuscleTech stuff.

                    As well as my recovery time was unchanged. Remember I swapped this for my normal stack so that was a good thing.
