Are pills the answer to boosting memory in humans? I won't touch that subject, but I do search for natural methods of boosting memory retention and grasp using products like ginseng and others. What about chocolate? Sound like a dream come true?
I'm not talking processed milk chocolate, but raw and sweet chocolate. That and blueberries, grapes and tea contain epicatechin and may lead to increased spatial memory. Although one of this study's researchers works for Mars, Inc. (maker of many candy bars), one has to wonder how much bias (if any) is in play here. Regardless, raw chocolate is something I'll eat whether it helps my memory or not. Now, where's that tea I just had?
