    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.

          I tried Anabolic Halo for the first time last month and saved a ton of money using this one product instead of all the supplements I usually buy. I've seen better results and so has my girlfriend :)

          Comments about MuscleTech® Anabolic Halo® - Chocolate:

          I have taken Anabolic HALO now for over 90 days. Let me tell you the results don't lie. Now I'm not an expert, but let me tell you this stuff is great. I started off taking just the one scoop and quickly switched to two after 30 days, man what a difference. I'm 41 years old now, but I know for a fact I can give the 20 and 30 year olds a run for their money.

          I would like to thank MuscleTech for providing me the opportunity to try a full tub of their Anabolic Halo in Wild Cherry Explosion in exchange for an honest review. What got me from the beginning was the 7in1 feature. I get my protein, essential carb matrix, BCAAs, Glutamine, and Creatine, all in one full serving. In addition, I love cherries, so the added Wild Cherry Explosion flavor was great! With the proper amount of water, the Anabolic Halo mixes instantly and easily. It is also not grainy. I have been taking this immediately post workout for the past 3 weeks and would certainly recommend it!

            This is one of the smartest products on the market today. This shake is not only the best tasting shake I have ever tried it is also the most effective as far as getting all of my recovery and muscle building supplements down all at once.

            Comments about MuscleTech® Anabolic Halo® - Chocolate:

            This is a pretty comprehensive formula. 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 pretty good. 7/10 because of the dosage issue. 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 hot chocolate kind of flavor. Man, it's been a while since I've had a chocolate shake

            Comments about MuscleTech® Anabolic Halo® - Chocolate:

            Used this protein post workout everyday for a month and have gotten the closest I've ever been to my goal weight of 200 pds (197 currently). I stacked this with a pre-workout that's intention was to gain some size and am really happy with the result. Same time don't feel bulky, feel really lean - would definitely suggest this throughout the winter (pre-beach season haha) or whenever you are looking to put on some size post workout. I put a 10 with taste although I typically just chug supplements, care more about results.

            This supplement has everything needed for my contest preperation. Creatine. Protein. Carbs. Aminos. Its perfect. But you care more about the content list. What about the performance? Over a months time i was able to notice great recovery processes with the product along with solid gains. The best part is i didnt have to mix all kinds of different things and spend all that money hoping they were all quality.. when i have the perfect quality product here.
