How to Maximize the Health Benefits of Chocolate, Part 1
June 9, 2022
The flavanols in chocolate have been shown to improve heart health, promote brain function and healthy blood sugar levels, and support full-body performance. But even popular dark chocolate brands may not deliver; it’s all about bean selection and proper processing. Alan Frost, Founder of Flava Naturals, details performance chocolate products that deliver 500-900mg of cocoa flavanols, with calorie counts as low as 35 per serving. That’s 5 to 9 times the cocoa flavanols of an average dark chocolate bar. The secret is starting with some of the highest flavanol cocoa beans globally and processing them naturally and at lower temperatures to preserve the flavanols. Click HERE for part 2.
