In a recent review paper in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, researchers suggest that daily consumption of cacao (cocoa extract) can reduce cognitive decline in age related neurodegenerative diseases, and help maintain brain health throughout aging.
Researchers found that dietary polyphenols, one of the many nutrients in cacao, have the ability to cross the blood brain barrier, and affect areas of the brain that are responsible for the development of Alzheimer's Disease.
In other studies, cacao has been found to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
