Embrace Cocoa Flavanols for National Nutrition Month

Cocoa flavanols from CocoaVia offer a convenient, easy way to make sure you get the recommended amount of 400 to 600 mg of flavanols daily.

March is National Nutrition Month! By now, you may have heard the prominent news around the benefits of flavanols. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), the world’s largest organization of nutrition and dietetics practitioners, issued a first of its kind recommendation on flavanols – recognizing the heart health benefits of these bioactives. Flavanols are compounds found in many plant-based foods and drinks, such as tea, apples, berries & cocoa. The AND’s recommendation is a daily intake of 400 to 600 milligrams of flavanols from a variety of foods to support cardiometabolic health.

How Can You Get Enough Flavanols?

This recommendation is a “food-first” recommendation; however, as you know, getting vitamins and minerals from a standard diet can be tough. That is certainly the case for flavanols, so supplements still represent an important complement to the diet. They can be an easy and convenient option for you to ensure you’re getting the recommended amount of flavanols everyday – and if you’re looking for a great option, try CocoaViaTM!

CocoaViaTM products are ConsumerLab verified and each serving of CocoaVia Cardio Health or CocoaVia Memory+ meets or exceeds the AND’s recommended daily intake of flavanols.
