BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cerebral ischemia is a common, morbid condition accompanied by cognitive decline. Recent reports on the vascular health benefits of flavanol-containing foods signify a promising approach to the treatment of cerebral ischemia. Our study was designed to investigate the effects of flavanol-rich cocoa (FRC) consumption on cerebral blood flow in older healthy volunteers. METHODS We used transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasound to measure mean blood flow velocity (MFV) in the… CONTINUE READING
