🧠 Boost Your Memory as You Age: Unleashing the Power of Flavanols! 🌱
Hey there, all you memory-conscious parents out there! 🗣️
We've got some fascinating news fresh off the press from the COSMOS-Web Study—researchers have been exploring the incredible benefits of flavanols on the aging brain.
Flavanols are natural compounds found in plant-based foods that pack a punch with their antioxidant properties, promoting overall health. But here's the catch: not everyone gets enough of these brain-boosting wonders in their diet. 🍎🍇🍫
After more than 15 years of dedicated research, the recent study took things to the next level. They enrolled 3500 healthy older adults and assigned them to take a daily flavanol supplement or a placebo for a duration of 3 years. Each supplement contained 500 mg of flavanols, including 80 mg of epicatechins.
And the results? Drumroll, please! 🥁
✅ Across the board, participants taking the daily flavanol supplement experienced slight improvements in their memory scores.
✅ However, those who had a poorer diet and lower levels of baseline flavanols showed the most significant memory improvement—a whopping 16% boost!
✅ But here's the real kicker: The memory improvement persisted for at least two more years, showcasing the long-term benefits of flavanols.
Here's a thought: Just like newborns and young children need specific nutrients for optimal brain development, the aging brain requires its fair share of brain-boosting goodness. And guess what? Flavanols have emerged as some of the key nutrients to support a healthy brain.
🌱So, if you're concerned about your memory as you age or simply want to keep your brain sharp while you take care of your kiddos, it might be time to explore the power of flavanols. Unlock the secrets to a vibrant memory and book a discovery call today. Let's nourish our minds together! 💡
