The highest concentration of cocoa flavanols. Guaranteed.

Not all cocoa is created equal™

Many people believe they can get concentrated cocoa flavanols from dark chocolate. While that would be delicious, it is incorrect. The darkness of the chocolate is not an indicator of the level of cocoa flavanols in it; you’d have to consume more than 600 calories of chocolate every day to get the same cocoa flavanol benefits delivered by one serving of CocoaVia® cocoa extract supplement. Even then, there’s no guarantee that the chocolate you enjoy actually has the same level of cocoa flavanols in it.

All chocolate is made from cocoa beans, a natural and abundant source of cocoa flavanols; however, not all chocolate or cocoa products contain significant amounts of beneficial cocoa flavanols. That’s because conventional cocoa handling and processing often destroys these natural compounds.

Gentle handling is crucial to preserving cocoa flavanols in the highest concentration possible. That’s why we use a gentle, patented process to develop Cocoapro® cocoa extract. This cocoa extract is the key ingredient in CocoaVia® daily cocoa extract supplement, which delivers 375 mg of cocoa flavanols in every serving — the highest concentration available, guaranteed.
