This smoothie might well work.  I use fresh turmeric root whenever I juice.  It doesn't change the flavour much at all.  I wonder if fresh root could go into this smoothie recipe?  Will have to check some time.

Evolutionary Psychiatry: Cocoa and Cognitive Decline

Evolutionary Psychiatry: Cocoa and Cognitive Decline | Superfoods Matter with Christine Margaret | Scoop.it

The author of this article implies that there is only one study, done by Mars, which of course, taken in isolation, we might decide not to trust. But this is not an isolated study. It is in good company.

 

Go to the link below to see a site that has collected 72 peer reviewed medical articles on the value of cocoa.  Let's not throw out the baby with the bathwater - just because one study was done by a company with a vested interest in the outcome.

Of course, we must realise that whilst the natural substances in unprocessed cocoa may be good, the stuff we put with them to turn them into chocolate may be much less desirable. Health purists go for totally natural powdered chocolate and make it up themselves into tasty treats using only other beneficial natural products.
