Link Between Low-Flavanol Diets and Age-Related Memory Loss Revealed by Study

Flavanol Supplements Improve Memory Function in Older Adults with Low-Flavanol Diets
Low-flavanol diets may contribute to age-related memory loss, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The research found that older adults with diets low in flavanols experienced memory decline. However, those who took flavanol supplements showed improved memory function. Flavanols are bioactive compounds found in foods like grapes, green tea, and chocolate, known for their antioxidant properties. The study suggests that flavanol consumption and monitoring flavanol levels may play a role in preventing cognitive decline. Future dietary recommendations may include increasing flavanol intake to support brain health in older individuals.
