I was reading about the COcoa Supplement and Multivitamins Outcome Study and it really caught my attention for a few reasons. Scientists at Harvard Medical School will be testing whether cocoa extracts boost health. They are currently recruiting for a four year study. I have personally had great success eating Healthy Chocolate for the last seven years so it interested me and I wondered why someone would want to take a “chocolate pill” when they could eat dark decadent Healthy Chocolate high in flavanols and low in calories. Here are the details;
“The COcoa Supplement and Multivitamin Outcomes Study (COSMOS) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital – an affiliate of Harvard Medical School (Boston, MA) and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Seattle, WA) is a clinical trial that will randomize 18,000 men and women across the U.S. The study will investigate whether taking daily supplements of cocoa flavanols (600 mg/day) or a common multivitamin reduces the risk for developing heart disease, stroke, and cancer.”
This study will go on for four years and my guess is that the study will be quite a success. Of course, I still wonder why someone would rather take a chocolate pill instead of Belgian Healthy Chocolate. Maybe because they don’t know that Beyond Healthy Chocolate exists yet. Well it does and here is the scoop.
Just three pieces of Beyond Healthy Chocolates Power Square a day would give you an ORAC6 score (antioxidants) of 112,122 and 2,016 Flavanoids mg. Every single piece offers 37,374 ORAC6 and 672 Flavanoids. One piece has no waxes, fillers, processed sugars and just 33 calories, 2 grams total fat (no trans fat), 2.33 grams fruit sugar, 0 mg Cholesterol and 3mg sodium. Considering that the study is only for 600 flavanols, this should be a no-brainer. It tastes great and even curbs my cravings for other sweets.
Might I suggest you try the Healthiest Chocolate In The World while we wait for these exciting study results from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, an affiliate of Harvard. The most popular Beyond Chocolate is the Nugget, perfect for a true chocoholic. If you like a smaller piece like me, enjoy the power squares. If you are not sure, order the variety pack which includes a small box of Beyond Power Squares, Nuggets, Omega Squares with flaxseed and an orange flavor and the Xobiotics with probiotics. They are all really good and off the charts as compared to your local grocery store in antioxidants, flavonoids and flavanols. Even better, sign up for the Healthy Chocolate of the month club (subscription) and every third month for the first year you will receive free product up to the value you purchase monthly. And, free shipping too!
