Dark Chocolate Can Improve Brain Health and Memory
February is the month of love. And very few gifts are more satisfying than chocolate. But did you know that dark chocolate is good for your brain? Most people have heard that it’s good for your heart, however, research has has also revealed that it improves memory and brain function.
Dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants and contains several natural stimulants that increase the production of endorphins while enhancing focus and concentration. Endorphins bind with opiate receptors in the brain leading to feelings of euphoria, like the kind joggers get from “runner’s high.” They also reduce pain and diminish the negative effects of stress.

Many of us use supplements to improve our health and brain performance. Did you know you can get better performance through consumption of the right whole foods? In our previous article, we discussed Neurologist Recommended Supplements for Brain Health. Although you should take supplements, many of your nutrients should come from whole foods. On Friday February 19th I met with Dr. Eric Hassid a neurologist and holistic and integrative practitioner for Sutter Medical Group to discuss brain and immune health. Hassid mentioned that minor food changes to your diet can optimize brain health.
Dr. Hassid’s recommended a diet focused on consuming foods that fuel or boost your mitochondria can optimize long term physical health and brain health.
5 Supplements for Healthy Immunity and Brain Function
Did you know immune and brain function go hand in hand? Many of the factors that maximize brain function do the same for your immune system. On Friday February 19th I met with Dr. Eric Hassid a neurologist and holistic and integrative practitioner for Sutter Medical Group to discuss brain and immune health.
According to Dr. Hassid, a healthy diet is one of the most important aspects of keeping the brain and immune system healthy. Sometimes a healthy diet is unable to provide all of the vitamins needed for optimal brain function. Although you should continue eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, supplements are a great way to fill the gaps in the nutrients missing from your diet.

Some of Memory Spring's Customers
“People keep stopping me in the hall to say, ‘Great training!’ and ‘I tried it last weekend and it really worked!’ In fact, I attended a pancake breakfast on Sunday and used it as an opportunity to practice names and faces — and it worked! Others have said, ‘I’m so sorry I missed it. Are you going to offer it again?’
Thanks again for tailoring the course to meet our needs.”
