In this study(1), 104 middle-aged human participants (52 females, 40-65 years old) were given dark chocolate with 632mg of polyphenols(we've estimated that Energy Pods have 350-450mg of polyphenols for our Chocolate Fudge & Chocolate Nova Energy Pods) and scientists noticed the following:
- Reduced mental and physical fatigue
- Enhanced vitality
- Improved executive function
- Improved memory
- Improved gray matter volume
Scientists also found a positive association with emotional functioning, relief of bodily pain, and social functioning.
In a nutshell, chocolate with high polyphenols incorporated into a diet may be advantageous. This may be another great reason to add Energy Pods to your diet and lifestyle.
