Findings to be presented at the 45th annual Society for Neuroscience meeting: Neuroscience 2015, McCormick Place, Chicago, October 17–21 Loma Linda, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2015 A Loma Linda University research team, led by Lee Berk, DrPH, MPH, has confirmed brain health benefits from the consumption of dark chocolate (cocoa). Findings to be presented at the 45th annual Society for Neuroscience meeting: Neuroscience 2015, McCormick Place, Chicago, October 17–21 The team’s initial studies have shown that absorbed cocoa flavonoids penetrate and accumulate in the brain regions associated with learning and memory. Shared properties of nerves and these cocoa flavonoids sequence the appearance of nerve-altering and protective proteins that promote nerve cell growth, increased brain function and brain communication, blood flow improvement and the formation of blood vessels in the brain…
