Being able to turn back the clock on memory could lead not only to improving your own memory.
But this research has the potential to lead to breakthroughs in treatments and prevention of dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other disorders affecting memory.
But the question now is how do we use this to help improve our own memories?
There are products on the market that are similar to the drinks used in the study (one produced by Mars ® who just happens to have created the drinks for the study).
But we can also get more cocoa flavanols naturally through raw cacao butter.
Cacao butter is the result of pressing the cocoa nibs during chocolate production.
It’s a sweet creamy shortening like product that can be used in your cooking similar to butters and oils.
And the raw cacao butter is very high in both flavanols and antioxidants.
Unfortunately, you cannot get the same level from processed cacao butter since most of the flavanols are destroyed during the process
