But, what ARE cocoa flavanolsCocoa Flavanols???
Well to start out, it will surprise you to find out that the benefits of cocoa/chocolate comes from cocoa flavanols, not percentage of cacoa or the darkness of the chocolate.
Cocoa flavanols are powerful phytonutrients, or plant-based nutrients, naturally found in cocoa beans.
Scientific studies demonstrate that within a few hours of consuming a product with cocoa flavanols, the cocoa flavanols enter the body and start to support your cardiovascular/circulatory system.
Although all chocolate is made from cocoa beans, not all chocolate or cocoa-based products contain cocoa flavanols. WHY? …because cocoa flavanols can be easily damaged by heat and humidity.
Flavanols from different sources all have their own unique profile or “fingerprint.” Cocoa flavanols are one of the most-researched types of flavanols and no other food on Earth can match the unique blend of flavanols found in cocoa.
