Cocoa Flavanols May Improve Brain Blood Flow 8/18/8 I have been shouting this for a long time that cocoa is tremendous for the heart and brain function. Please click on Your Health and go to the section on cocoa. I list a great source for ordering cocoa.
“Cocoa flavanols, the unique compounds found naturally in cocoa, may increase blood flow to the brain, according to new research published in the Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment journal. The researchers suggest that long-term improvements in brain blood flow could impact cognitive behavior, offering future potential for debilitating brain conditions including dementia and stroke.”
“Vitamin D may protect against an artery disease in which fatty deposits restrict blood flow to the limbs, researchers said on Wednesday.”
“People taking prescription antidepressants appear to drive worse than people who aren’t taking such drugs, and depressed people on antidepressants have even more trouble concentrating and reacting behind the wheel.”
“Statin drugs, which are used to lower cholesterol, may adversely affect a particular group of brain cells important to the health of aging brains, according to researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center. “There has been a great deal of discussion about a link between statins and dementia, but evidence either way has been scant,” said Steven Goldman, M.D., Ph.D., the research team leader. “This new data provides a basis for further exploration.”
