The COCOA-PAD trial will determine whether epicatechin-rich cocoa daily for six months improves walking performance compared to placebo.
This study determines to evaluate the effectiveness of the daily consumption of flavonoid-rich cocoa in the treatment of fatigue in Parkinson's patients. The participants were divided equally between the flavonoid-rich cocoa (device) and control cocoa groups. The participant will engage in a six day trial, with measures taken at Day 1 and Day 6.
This study will investigate the effects of dietary supplementation of epicatechin-rich cocoa in humans on collagen synthesis and power-based performance outcomes (rate of force development).
The decrease in body fat percentage improves exercise performance, reducing race time. The intake of cocoa improves the body fat composition in obese and diabetic people by improving their cardiovascular disease risk factors. Although epidemiological studies indicate that healthy subjects who consume cocoa have lower body fat composition, there is no study indicating whether cocoa improves fat composition in athletes. The aim of the study was to determine if the intake of cocoa...
The study use a double blind, placebo-controlled design enrolling male and female subjects between 55-90 yo to evaluate the effect of daily consumption of a cocoa beverage on anthropometric, metabolic, oxidative stress, physical performance and quality of life.
Athletes consume an extra of nutritional supplements every day with the purpose of improving their athletic performance, sometimes without being aware of their health. Cocoa could be a good nutritional supplement for athletes without causing them adverse effects. One of the most common health concerns in athletes are gastrointestinal problems. The cause of these problems seem to be a compendium of physiological and mechanical causes that are altered due to nutritional factors. ...
A randomized, double-masked and cross-over dietary intervention study in healthy young adult males to evaluate the concentration of F-derived metabolites in plasma and urine after single acute intakes of F-containing drinks on four different test days.
The study aims to investigate the effect that supplementing the diet with cocoa flavanols has on vasospasm symptoms and temperature regulation in women with primary Raynaud's phenomenon (PRP). Participants will be randomised to consume either high flavanol cocoa extract or low flavanol cocoa (placebo) daily for 3 months.
This project aims to investigate whether consumption of cocoa polyphenols has an impact on cognitive function in individuals aged 50 to 60 years of age and if such an improvement is a result of an improvement in risk factors associated with cognitive decline in ageing.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of optimized composition chocolates that include natural ingredients with demonstrated biological activity are observed cardioprotectores effects in the human.
Foods rich in certain (poly)phenols, particularly flavonoids, such as berries and cocoa, have been shown to improve measures of vascular function as well as cognitive performance in human intervention studies. This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled, parallel trial investigating the effects of daily blueberry (poly)phenol consumption on vascular function and cognitive performance in healthy elderly individuals. The study will be conducted at King's College London...
The aim of this study will be to define the bioavailability and the beneficial properties of coffee bioactive compounds. Moreover, the contribution of cocoa-based products containing coffee to the pool of circulating metabolites will be investigated with the aim of evaluating the effect of the combination of bioactives from different sources. To study the bioavailability of coffee/cocoa bioactive compounds and their effects in cardiometabolic health, the objectives will be: ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether green tea or cocoa extracts are effective in improve endothelial dysfunction in patients with diabetes mellitus and nephropathy and arterial hypertension.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the individual and combined effects of dark chocolate/cocoa and almonds on lipids, lipoproteins, antioxidant defense, lipid peroxidation, phenolic acids, inflammatory status, blood pressure and arterial health. It is hypothesized that dark chocolate/cocoa and/or almonds will favorably affect lipids, lipoproteins, antioxidants, inflammatory status, blood pressure and arterial health compared to a healthy American control diet; however,...
This study will check to see if using cocoa butter lotion on the belly, breasts and thighs will help reduce the appearance of stretch marks in pregnancy. Women entering the study will either receive a lotion containing cocoa butter with vitamin E or a lotion containing only vitamin E. After delivery, the study investigators will evaluate whether the women who used cocoa butter lotion were less likely to develop stretch marks.
A randomized, double-masked and cross-over dietary intervention study to investigate the effects of diet supplementation with cocoa flavanols on arterial stiffness in healthy adult human subjects.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether high-flavonoid cocoa can decrease appetite in humans. In addition the study is designed to test epicatechin, a compound found in cocoa and procyanidins, a class of compounds found in cocoa, for their ability to decrease appetite in humans.
There is substantial interest in the potential role of chocolate and its primary bioactive component; flavan-3-ol, (-)-epicatechin, in both the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Numerous observational studies have found the association between high cocoa intake and a reduced CVD risk and mortality, yet the impact of these mechanisms in vivo is unclear. In order to have a beneficial effect, these cocoa flavan-3-ols must be absorbed in the body in a forms...
The primary propose of this study is to determine the impact of flavanol-rich cocoa on the growth of the human gut microbiota.
This study will be a cross-sectional observational study, followed by a pilot intervention. The aim of the study is to examine the underlying causes of walking-related performance fatigability, together with other related and influencing factors, to make up a clinical profile of patients with MS showing walking-related performance fatigability. In the second part of the study a pilot intervention will be executed to see if the investigators can improve the clinical status of th...
The purpose of the current study is to investigate the effects of powered exoskeleton (EKSO) on cardiovascular performance as measured by resting blood pressure and heart rate, peak oxygen consumption during walking, energy expenditure, whole and regional body composition assessments. The effects of exoskeleton training on walking kinematics including stand-up time, walking time, distance covered and speed of walking will also be evaluated.
Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is associated with microvascular changes in the brain, which can cause cognitive dysfunction. Cocoa flavanols (CF) can stimulate vasodilation, resulting in enhanced cerebral blood flow and better cognitive function. This study aimed to investigate whether acute CF supplementation can improve cognitive function and the hemodynamic (BOLD) response in T1D patients.
Chocolate consumption has long been associated with enjoyment and pleasure. Popular claims confer on chocolate the properties of being a stimulant, relaxant, euphoriant and antidepressant. These possible pharmacological actions might be related to various biogenic amines, such as serotonin, dopamine, tyramine, histamine, phenylethylamine and cannabinoid-like substances. Most amines are metabolized by monoamineoxidase-A (MAO-A) and are therefore unable to pass the blood-brain-ba...
Coffee, tea, and cocoa contain caffeine, a plant alkaloid. They are frequently consumed during pregnancy. We examined the effect of coffee consumption on fetal renal artery blood flow and amniotic fluid index (AFI) in the third trimester of pregnancy
This is a randomized clinical trial aimed at postmenopausal women aged 50 to 64 years old selected in urban primary care centers of two centers (Spain). Its objective is to evaluate the effects of the additional intake of high cocoa content chocolate on blood pressure, vascular function, body composition, quality of life and cognitive performance.
