Is Chocolate a Nootropic?

Few people can say they have tried chocolate and didn’t like it.

It’s one of the most popular sweet substances produced in the world, appearing in candy, dessert, beverages and more.

Entire economic empires have sprouted from its popularity, including swiss chocolatiers, the European companies Cadbury and Nestle, the American company Hershey.

Chocolate manifests itself not only as a tasty treat, but also as a mood and memory enhancer. Some cultures even tout it as a mild aphrodisiac due to its psychotropic properties.

Most interestingly, however, is that chocolate has been shown to act as a nootropic, and quite a good one!
