This is interesting because flavonoids are in several tasty places, like grapes.

Highlights

• Neuroinflammation is associated with the pathogenesis and progression of neurodegenerative disorders.
• Flavonoids modulate the inflammatory response exerting neuroprotective effects.
• Flavonoids regulation of microglial cells involve MAPKs and NF-κB signalling pathways.

you're a brave man, sir. i draw the line at 80. happy place = 70 lol
odd sx? no dx? check w/ dietitian
DRI=MINIMUM eg bit.ly/1vgQclQ
99% don't meet these. meds/lifestyle can affect levels
status can be low in ms & other cond'ns
'but my results are normal'. typical panels don't test all
deficits occur in 'normal' range

Added sugar makes inflammation. Maybe %99 is much much much more effective than %80? Or %80 maybe inflammatory?

1 cup of filtered coffee and 10 grams of %99 chocolate sounds so good for MS if caffeine is not a problem. Lots of antioxidants for fighting free radicals and lots of flavonoids for neuro benefits.

Regular "chocolate" is loaded with sugar. Chocolate is basically a mix of cocoa and sugar. Milk chocolate has milk added to to cocoa and sugar. Cocoa on its own (without sugar) is quite healthy. I have been consuming about 5lbs a month for a couple of years (actually cacao, not cocoa). If you are going to consume some, you should try to only use cacao, not cocoa.

What is the difference between cacao and cocoa?

Raw cacao powder is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cocoa and removes the fat (cacao butter). Cocoa looks the same but it's not. Cocoa powder is raw cacao that's been roasted at high temperatures.

While dark chocolate is thought to be healthy because it has less sugar than regular chocolate, it still has some (sugar) and should be avoided.

Another excellent anti-inflammatory supplement is curcummin/turmeric.

my nephews get endangered species bars every xmas but they have not yet come over to the dark side.

my daily coffee is a far more clear and present danger sugar-wise than any occasional chocolate bar.

The Endangered Species 88% bars were well rated in a review by Consumer Lab for flavonoid content.
