After ingesting the cocoa flavanols, participants also performed better on the most challenging cognitive tests, correctly solving problems 11% faster than they did at baseline or when they consumed cocoa with reduced flavanols. There was no measurable difference in performance on the easier tasks, however. "This suggests that flavanols might only be beneficial during cognitive tasks that are more challenging," Rendeiro said.
