How Cocoa Flavanols helps in:

Cardiovascular Disease

Cocoa Flavanols increases your body's natural production of Nitric Oxide and it helps relax the arteries wall and assist in blood vessels dilation. This is critical in maintaining healthy blood pressure and flow which carries oxygen and nutrients throughout your whole body.

"Thirteen SRs were identified and reviewed, and provided strong evidence that dark chocolate did not reduce blood pressure. The evidence was however strong for an association with increased flow-mediated vasodilatation (FMD) and moderate for an improvement in blood glucose and lipid metabolism. Our analysis showed that cocoa products with around 100 mg epicatechin can reliably increase FMD, and that cocoa flavanol doses of around 900 mg or above may decrease blood pressure in specific individuals and/or if consumed over longer periods." [4]

"Cocoa is a rich source of high-quality antioxidant polyphenols. They comprise mainly catechins (29%-38% of total polyphenols), anthocyanins (4% of total polyphenols) and proanthocyanidins (58%-65% of total polyphenols). A growing body of experimental and epidemiological evidence highlights that the intake of cocoa polyphenols may reduce the risk of cardiovascular events. Beyond antioxidant properties, cocoa polyphenols exert blood pressure lowering activity, antiplatelet, anti-inflammatory, metabolic and anti-atherosclerotic effects, and also Improve endothelial function."[5]

Hypertension

Cocoa Flavanols may improve blood pressure by favorably impacting the hormones that regulate and control blood pressure.

"Studies in humans have found consumption of certain flavanoid-containing foods to be associated with improvement in endothelial function and with reduction of blood pressure (BP). These results give further support to the concept that (-)-epicatechin can modulate BP in hypertension by increasing NO levels in the vasculature." [6]

"In the study published in Age, two groups of 22 young (<35 years of age) and 20 older (50-80 years of age) healthy men consumed either a flavanol-containing drink, or a flavanol-free control drink, twice a day for two weeks. The researchers then measured the effect of flavanols on hallmarks of cardiovascular aging, such as arterial stiffness (as measured by pulse wave velocity), blood pressure and flow-mediated vasodilation (the extent to which blood vessels dilate in response to nitric oxide). They found that vasodilation was significantly improved in both age groups that consumed flavanols over the course of the study (by 33% in the younger age group and 32% in the older age group over the control intervention). In the older age group, a statistically and clinically significant decrease in systolic blood pressure of 4 mmHg over control was also seen." [7]

Checking Blood Pressure

Diabetes Type 2

Flavonoids improve the pathogenesis of diabetes and its complications through the regulation of glucose metabolism, hepatic enzymes activities, and a lipid profile. 

"Prevention of diabetes mellitus type 2 (DMT2) through the diet is receiving a growing interest and cocoa because of its polyphenolic compounds, mainly flavanols, has become an important potential chemopreventive natural agent. Cocoa and its main flavanols might contribute to prevent or delay diabetes mellitus type 2 by modulating insulin secretion in β-pancreatic cells and targeting insulin-sensitive tissues because of their insulin-like activity or through the regulation of key proteins of the insulin signaling route. Among other actions, cocoa flavanols have been proved to enhance glucose uptake through the promotion of glucose transport, to repress glucose production, or to improve lipid metabolism." [8]

"Diabetes mellitus is associated with reductions in glutathione, supporting the critical role of oxidative stress in its pathogenesis. Antioxidant food components such as flavonoids have a protective role against oxidative stress-induced degenerative and age-related diseases. Flavonoids such as epicatechin (EC) constitute an important part of the human diet; they can be found in cocoa and possess multiple biological activities. Ins-1E cells treated with EC showed a remarkable recovery of cell viability and insulin secretion damaged by t-BOOH, indicating that integrity of secreting and surviving machineries in the EC-treated cells was notably protected against the oxidative insult." [9]

Alzheimer’s Disease

Cocoa Flavanols reduces oligomerization of amyloid-β: implications for cognitive improvement in Alzheimer's disease.

"Polyphenol-rich diets are reported to reduce the risk for AD. Our findings indicate that cocoa extracts have multiple disease-modifying properties in AD and present a promising route of therapeutic and/or preventative initiatives." [10]

Cognitive Ability

Cocoa flavanols consumption improves cognitive function, concentration and memory for the elderlies as well as adults and kids above 5 years old. It helps improve blood flow in our body thus oxygen was carried to our vital organ of our body especially the brain.

"The brains of healthy adults recovered faster from a mild vascular challenge and performed better on complex tests if the participants consumed cocoa flavanols beforehand, researchers report in the journal Scientific Reports. In the study, 14 of 18 participants saw these improvements after ingesting the flavanols. Overall, the findings suggest that the improvements in vascular activity after exposure to flavanols are connected to the improvement in cognitive function." [11]

"Recent evidence has indicated that flavanol consumption may have many health benefits in humans, including improved cognitive activities. This dietary intervention study provides evidence that regular CF consumption can reduce some measures of age-related cognitive dysfunction, possibly through an improvement in insulin sensitivity. These data suggest that the habitual intake of flavanols can support healthy cognitive function with age.." [12]

Skin Health

Cocoa Flavanols is high in antioxidant to protect your skin cells from damage by free radicals and prevent premature skin aging.

"The consumption of dietary antioxidants is considered to be a good strategy against photo-aging. However, the results of previous clinical trials that investigated the effects of oral consumption of high-flavanol cocoa products on skin photo-aging have been contradictory. In moderately photo-aged women, regular cocoa flavanol consumption had positive effects on facial wrinkles and elasticity. Cocoa flavanol supplementation may contribute to the prevention of the progression of photo-aging. " [13]

Anti-viral

Cocoa Flavanols contains strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity to improve immune system, hence helps in viral prevention.

"Cocoa contains high concentrations of phytochemicals, including momomeric (epicatechin and catechin) and oligomeric (procyanidin) flavanols. Recent research has been identified the health-promoting effects of flavanols in cocoa. Cocoa and its phytochemicals have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity." [14]

"The well-known capacity of flavonoids to regulate anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory responses underscores their potential importance also in the treatment of COVID-19. Although the results of studies utilizing flavonoids against COVID-19 published so far are promising, the body of literature on this topic as a whole remains partial and does not provide sufficient evidence for its applicability in COVID-19 patients. Nevertheless, current intensive research suggests the great potential of flavonoids as natural substances promoting the prevention or overcoming the SARS-CoV-2 infection due to the wide range of their biological effects including the modulation of inflammatory processes and immune responses. Due to the extensive biological effects of flavonoids demonstrated in various pathologies, promising results are hypothesized also in the association of their usefulness in the management of COVID-19. Based on the findings discussed in this review, the beneficial effects of flavonoids in the modulation of inflammatory and immune processes in COVID-19 can be expected." [15]

Athletic Performance

Cocoa flavanols intake may improve vascular function, reduce exercise-induced oxidative stress, and alter fat and carbohydrate utilization during exercise, without affecting exercise performance. [16]

"Nine moderately-trained male participants volunteered to undertake baseline (BL) measurements that comprised a cycle V̇O(2max) test followed by cycling at 80% of their established gas exchange threshold (GET) for 20-min and then immediately followed by a two-minute time-trial (TT). Chronic supplementation with flavanols resulted in a higher gas exchange threshold (GET) and enhanced TT performance. Consequently, ingestion of flavanols reduced the oxygen cost of moderate intensity exercise and may be an effective ergogenic aid for short-duration moderate intensity exercise." [17]

"Cocoa and its major flavanol component, epicatechin, have therapeutic properties that may improve limb perfusion and increase calf muscle mitochondrial activity in people with lower extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD). These preliminary results suggest a therapeutic effect of cocoa on walking performance in people with PAD. " [18]
