CocoaHeal: A new substance class with impressive wound healing, proliferation promoting and protective functions from Cocoa


Scientists at the University of Münster, Germany, have isolated and characterized a novel substance class from Cocoa. CocoaHeal is capable of stimulating growth and mitochondrial activity in keratinocytes and hepatocytes without influencing classical cell signalling via growth hormone receptors. Furthermore CocoaHeal prevents Helicobacter pylori from adhering to human stomach tissue thereby minimizing risk of infection and gastric ulcers.
