A recent study of 60 people with an average age of 73 seems to show that drinking two cups of cocoa a day can result in an improvement in blood flow in the brain and improvements in memory. Increasing age is known to be associated with impaired blood flow in the brain. This is thought to play a part in dementia. As part of the study, MRI scans were taken, which seem to support the theory that cocoa results in improved blood flow through the blood vessels in the brain.Trefine Maynard, a clinical negligence specialist solicitor at Ashtons Legal, said: “What a great idea, a prescription to drink cocoa every day. I would be very interested to know if eating chocolate would have the same effect. If so, it may be that you can never start too young on a programme of ‘healthy’ eating.

On a more serious note, given the increasing numbers of those over the age of 60 as a percentage of the population, research that offers real hope of preventing or treating dementia or the underlying health issues that may lead to it, is very welcome. If it turns out that cocoa or chocolate is part of the cure then all I can say is hurrah!”
