High-Flavanol Cocoa Linked to Better Memory

High-Flavanol Cocoa Linked to Better Memory
High-Flavanol Cocoa Linked to Better Memory: Main Image
A daily dose of high-flavanol cocoa gave seniors with mild memory loss a boost in memory and language

A study in Hypertension found that a daily dose of high-flavanol cocoa gave seniors with mild memory loss a boost in memory and language.

In this study, researchers explored the effects of flavanol-rich cocoa on brain function in 90 adults (ages 64 to 82) with mild memory loss. The participants were randomly assigned to a high-flavanol (990 mg flavanols), intermediate-flavanol (520 mg flavanols), or low-flavanol (45 mg flavanols) cocoa drink, daily for 8 weeks. Brain function was tested at baseline and after the intervention to assess for memory-related factors such as attention, recall, language, and time to complete a given task.

Results showed the high- and intermediate-flavanol groups completed an assigned task by as much as 35 seconds earlier compared with the low-flavanol group. The high-flavanol cocoa drink also performed better in the verbal fluency test compared with the low-flavanol group (speaking about 28 versus 22 words per 60 seconds). In addition, insulin resistance, blood pressure, and lipid peroxidation (a chemical reaction that leads to the formation of cell-damaging free radicals) significantly decreased in the high- and intermediate-flavanols groups.

The study authors note that improved brain function was associated with a reduced insulin resistance and that better blood sugar (glucose) regulation may help recover brain function. The authors comment that "the regular dietary inclusion of flavanols could be one element of a dietary approach to maintaining and improving not only cardiovascular health but also specifically brain health." They also note that further studies on the role of cocoa in brain function are warranted.

Feeding the brain

Increasing research shows that what we eat and drink definitely affects our brain as well as our body. Here are some additional brain-feeding foods to keep in mind while grocery shopping:

Whole foods. Buy nutrient-rich vegetables, fruits, and whole grains that have not been processed, as highly processed foods are often low in nutrients, rich in calories, and high in fat and sugar. They are also more likely to contain preservatives and additives such as chemicals and dyes that can hurt brain health.

Low-sugar items. Remember that many types of cocoa and chocolate products are often high in sugar and can worsen health over time. The products used in this study were rich in flavanols, which are plant chemicals with health-giving properties. High blood sugar has been linked to poor health in general and to poor brain health. Just as excess sugar is bad for the rest of the body it also hurts the brain. Eating low or no sugar foods and saving sugary treats for special occasions may help preserve brain function.

Power nutrients. Specific nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids have been linked to better brain health for the young and the old. Fatty fish, such as salmon and mackerel, is a good source of omega-3s. In addition, the study authors comment that the B vitamins, vitamins D and E, and choline, have also been linked to improved brain function. But it is important to remember that any one particular nutrient or food by itself won't fully protect your brain. It's eating a balanced diet with a variety of nutrients that may help protect your memory in the long run.

                Comments about Windmill™ Health Products Focus Formula™:

                Something that a lot of people probably don't realize is most ingredients in this guy are well documented for helping to mitigate, reduce or prevent some forms of migraines.

                I've been taking this stuff for years for that purpose and I'm happy to report it USUALLY keeps me balanced.

                It doesn't reduce symptoms 100% and I certainly wouldn't recommend this as a substitute for other reducers, but you will probably find it helps reduce your need for other preventative drugs and has other positive side effects.

                I just hope GNC never stops carrying this. They're the last vendor I know of that sells it =(.

                Used it for a semester when I had a heavy class load. This stuff is for real, but it comes at a cost. For me, my sleep pattern was really messed up. I'd be up all night some nights, sleep like a log others. There was no predicting what type of night you'd have. The weird thing is, even on your insomniac nights, you could concentrate really well the next day, like you could turn on a concentration switch. Weird. It starts to wear off after a few months though.

                  me and my 15yr old son was looking for him something to help focus and remember things when he is at school. i took these a couple of times and noticed right off the difference. im a 50yr old mom and recently ive noticed when im at work or home when i try to recall something it takes a while. i didnt know if this is that "fog brain" they say a woman can get going through menopause or not. after i took one before work one night (graveyard worker) i noticed when i tried to remember if i had already paged someone etc, it came back to me like it used to when i was younger! then i realized how much of a fog my brain had actually been in. my son had said a couple of days before that he didnt think they were working for him so i told him you have to give herb pills a month or even several months to see the effects. well, after i found they worked so fast and well for me i told him if he wasnt going to take them i was! he then said that he had started to see a difference too. every time i take them i notice the difference especially when im at work. im excited!
