Chocolate Could Reverse Memory Loss

According to a new study by neurologists at New York’s Columbia University Medical Center published just yesterday in Nature Neuroscience, chocolate could reverse memory loss. While their study was admittedly limited, the research team determined that a specific component of cocoa can improve memory and retard memory loss.

The researchers observed 37 people, aged 50 to 69, who were given a special drink –much like a protein shake supplement—that contained either a high or a low dose of cocoa flavanols for three months. Dr. Scott Small, who led the study, told the New York Times: “If a participant had the memory of a typical 60-year-old at the beginning of the study, after three months that person on average had the memory of a typical 30- or 40-year-old.”

He elaborated on the importance of flavonols. He noted that higher doses of cocoa flavonols “cause an improvement in the area of the brain that’s affected by aging.”

Alzheimer’s Association director of scientific programs and outreach, Keith Fargo, spoke to the press regarding the findings of the recently published memory loss study. Fargo stated: “This work was conducted at the very highest level of medical evidence that there is. But it’s not clear whether the dietary intervention they identify would have any affect whatsoever on any other measure of (memory), other than on what they specifically measured. And those measures, I would say, were rather narrowly drawn.”

He added: “Many groups have pursued a link between dementia and heart health. And we all know how much diet and exercise can affect your heart health. So it’s very possible that diet can also affect the brain health as well. It’s certainly something that we need to research more.”

Both Fargo and Scott were in agreement on one point. They both felt that this subject was worthy of additional study.
