U.S. – A special cocoa drink concoction could aid those who are dealing with age related memory loss. As reported by HealthDay, a small study found that the lab-created cocoa mix could help memory loss related to normal aging.
According to the findings, a person with the average memory of a 60-year-old could see improvement in their memory comparable to that of someone in their 30s or 40s.
The study’s researchers warned; however, that an average person would not necessarily be able to enhance their memory with cocoa products that are commercially available.
Study co-author Dr. Scott Small, who is director of the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center with the Taub Institute at the Columbia University Medical Center in New York City, is quoted as stating of the research, “This is really not about chocolate…And it would be detrimental to one’s health to try and run out and get flavanols from chocolate, which exist in chocolate, but in miniscule amounts.”
