👉The story :
What you eat could improve your memory as you age. That’s according to new research in the US that found people who had a diet rich in flavanols may be less likely to lose their memory. The substance is found in tea, berries, apples and cacao – the seed chocolate is made from. But while some scientists think eating more dark chocolate could help, others say more research is needed.
