Eu bem dizia que chocolate e vinho tinto são uma combinação fabulosa.
Agora tenho inclusivé razões médicas para consumir este duo. O problema é a parte do consumir com moderação.
Studies by British researchers have shown that the polyphenols present in both red wine and dark chocolate help to widen the blood vessels, increasing the blood supply to the brain. This in turn brings more oxygen and sugars to the brain, which helps it to function better. Results showed that those who had a dose of polyphenols could handle complex calculations both easier and faster than those who did not. Perhaps most interestingly, researchers found that when red wine and chocolate are consumed together, they are more effective in promoting brain function.
Um beijo com saudade.
