    The chocolate can be very good for your eyes, it is true, as it can improve the eyes sight. There is a kind of material contained in chocolate of flavonoid would be helpful for the blood circulation of cornea, in order to improve the eye sight. However, you know the black or dark chocolate is pretty good than the white chocolate, is just because the white chocolate contains more fat and sugar while the dark one will be more pure and contains more cocoa material. The sweet food would be bad for your health as the sugar will block the absorption of your body to the calcium, but except the dark chocolate.

    Yes, I also heard that dark chocolate can be good for eyesight. That is why my dad always eat a little bit chocolate before he drives at night. At first, I didn' t believe this, but then I got to know this from a book that was written by a nutritionist. It is said that dark chocolate can help control your blood pressure so that your vision can also be improved at the same time. I think this is a good way.

    Acute cocoa supplementation enhances the visual performance of young adults. Cocoa improved reading of low contrast letters, and detection of motion. We propose that increased blood flow to the retina and brain explains this. We also replicated the recent finding that cocoa improves cognitive ability. Dark chocolate has higher concentrations of flavonoids, the antioxidant compounds also found in teas, some fruits, and red wine. The scientists say these flavonoids are able to increase blood flow to the brain and the retina of the eye.This means a piece of high quality dark chocolate could help you see better in low-contrast conditions. The results were said to be most pronounced in those over the age of 25.In addition, like the beta-carotene in carrots, dark chocolate contains a small amount of vitamin A, which protects against macular degeneration.
