I have been very interested in the recent uptick in peer review journal studies on the benefits of cocoa flavanols, cocoa flavonoids and total ORAC6 (antioxidants).  The results were so astonishing to my mind that I was intrigued.  Here are just a few of the studies I have read that may interest you;


Cocoa flavanol consumption improves cognitive function, blood pressure control, and metabolic profile in elderly subjects:  the Cocoa, Cognition, and Aging (C0C0A) Study–a randomized controlled trial

Cocoa antioxidants and cardiovascular health

The neuroprotective effects of cocoa flavanol and its influence on cognitive performance


The more I read about the benefits of cocoa flavanol on cognitive performance, the more interesting it gets.  The last study I mentioned above, “The neuroprotective effects of cocoa flavanol and its influence on cognitive performance” was especially intriguing when it mentions in their conclusion that ” flavonoids preserve cognitive abilities during aging in rats, lower the risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease and decrease the risk of stroke in humans.”  Can I just say wow?  Now you see why I am excited.  They do go on to talk about the the benefits and possible detrimental affects, ultimately stating the benefits outweigh the negatives.  However, they are not talking about Healthy Chocolate.  Beyond Healthy Chocolate is made with a patented process that does not heat the chocolate keeping in the antioxidants and flavanols from the raw cacao which is what the chocolate and cocoa are made from.  Knowing this, and that a Healthy Chocolate without waxes, fillers, processed sugars, one that is diabetic friendly, gluten free, vegetarian and some that are dairy free, make Beyond Chocolate a great choice if you are looking for high quality Belgian Chocolate and the health benefits in the studies noted above.

When reading the last study, this really caught my attention.  “Epicatechin is rapidly absorbed in humans and is detectable in plasma 30 min after ingestion. Epicatechin concentrations reach a peak 2–3 h after ingestion and return to baseline value by 6–8 h after consumption of flavanol-rich chocolate. The overall effects of a daily regular consumption may potentially accumulate [16], mainly if absorbed in high doses [17].”

Did you see that?  The overall effects of a daily regular consumption may potentially accumulate, mainly if absorbed in high doses!  This is exactly why you need to be enjoying Beyond Healthy Chocolate on a regular basis.  Healthy Chocolate Company recommends you eat at least 3 pieces a day.  What you decide to do is up to you and your family.  Honestly, even starting to incorporate a small amount of chocolate each day is a start in the right direction.  Years ago my hubby and I started with a box of Power Squares.  These are small, 33 calorie each, 37,373 ORAC6 (antioxidants) in each individual piece and 672 flavonoids.  The amounts are independently verified by third party ICT Labs.

On my new favorite product, Beyond Activ, I can take a 1 ounce swig of this healthy concoction and get 53,558 ORAC6 (antioxidant) and 1,892 Flavonoids (mg) per fluid ounce.  If you don’t want to mix it, it can even be sprinkled on food.  “Recent studies on cacao have concluded that best results were obtained by consuming a daily minimum of 600-900 mg of Total Flavonoids, plant-based antioxidants that help the body’s cells resist damage by free radicals”.  The Beyond Activ Healthy Chocolate Beverage has an astounding 1.829 mg of Total Flavonoids per fluid ounce.  (taken from the back of the Beyond Activ product)

The studies are clear.  There are benefits to eating the Healthiest Chocolate in the World.
