A number of studies link high-purity chocolate to cardiovascular health. A recent systematic review and meta-analysis confirmed there is an association between chocolate consumption and heart health. More research is needed to further elucidate the relationship, but “levels of chocolate consumption seem to be associated with a substantial reduction in the risk of cardiometabolic disorders.”1
Flavanol-rich chocolate supports heart health by helping to maintain optimal blood flow. It is beneficial for vascular function as it helps increase nitric oxide bioavailability and decrease oxidative stress.2 Our Healthy Chocolates are high in flavanols and purity, made with 70% organic cocoa.
Another study concluded that regular intake of flavanols, including those found in cocoa, contribute to endothelial blood flow by supporting a healthy population of circulating angiogenic cells (CACs).3
Healthy Chocolate has a patent pending for its unique process of making chocolate with Xylitol.
