(Disclosure: I teamed up with the CocoaVia® brand to educate my readers about the health benefits of cocoa flavanols. Sponsored by my friends at CocoaVia® brand, written 100% by me.)
Cocoa flavanols are the beneficial plant-based nutrients found naturally in cocoa that work with your body to maintain healthy levels of nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide works with your blood vessels to support the healthy flow of oxygen and nutrients throughout your body. As a food and nutrition expert, I love this because I want people to get the most benefit from foods they eat.
Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that cocoa flavanols promote healthy blood flow from head to toe† – And no other food on Earth can match cocoa’s unique blend of flavanols! Plus, who doesn’t love the idea of getting a delicious, chocolate taste more often?
