    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™:

                I went to the store with the intention to get Fast Focus since I read great reviews on the website. The store I went to didn't have that product so the staff suggested this instead. He told me a lot of their workers take them and said it was effective. It was cheaper than Fast Focus costing only [$], too. When checking out, the product somehow ended up being [$] and I bought it anyways. Took it the first day with just one pill in the morning and immediately I start feeling sleepy. The second day I took two pills as directed on the box with my meal after lunch. This time I almost past out driving home!! I was so tired and so sleepy for the rest of my day. I wonder if they had packaged sleeping pills in this Focus Formula!!!

                    Comments about Windmill™ Health Products Focus Formula™:

                    My wife and I bought this just to try it out.. Look out, take 2 of these things and the brain is noticeably sharper, no guesses about it.. My wife goes to college and she always takes two before tests.. For me, I usually take one for a little edge during the work day, because taking two really does step it up in the mental department, but I noticed if I dont take any the next day, I feel a little spaced out. But if I just take one, and then I can skip the next day if im not working, and no spaced out side effects.. Now I dont know if I am really spaced out, or if I am just noticing the difference in intellectual consistency from when I am taking it to when I am not.. I hope I am not that spaced out without focus formula, but maybe its a combination of both. The spaced out feel could be a side effect possibly? together with the sudden realization of the absence of enhanced intellectual capabilities? combine those two together and a definite increase in the space cadet feel would be quite noticeable..

                      I think it works. I take SNRI and some times SSRI can affect episodic memory which is important in my line of work. I think this stuff work. Maybe it is all in my head. Some other reviews say it doesn't. I tried ginkgo and it doesn't work as well.

                      i used this for about 2 weeks, and it worked okay at the beginning as i could study harder and stuff, but after the effects stopped. i ran into some other stuff like focus fast and it works much better.
