GERMANTOWN, Md., Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CocoaVia® cocoa extract supplement is now available in Walgreens stores nationwide, complete with new packaging that highlights the role of cocoa flavanols in promoting healthy blood flow†. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that cocoa flavanols promote healthy blood flow from head to toe†. Our entire bodies including our heart, brain, and muscles, depend on healthy blood flow, which helps us feel and perform at our best.
"We're excited to partner with Walgreens to make CocoaVia® supplement more accessible to consumers across the country," said Julie Talbot, Marketing and Sales Director, Mars Symbioscience, makers of CocoaVia® supplement. "Leading universities around the world and the scientists at Mars, Incorporated have studied cocoa flavanols, and there is growing data on their importance in supporting the health of the entire body by supporting healthy blood flow." Cocoa flavanols are naturally-occurring phytonutrients in the cocoa bean. Most cocoa processing—such as the fermenting, drying, and roasting in conventional chocolate—destroys cocoa flavanols. However Mars, Incorporated has dedicated over two decades of research to cocoa flavanols, and through its patented Cocoapro® process, preserves the flavanols found naturally in cocoa beans to deliver the highest concentration of cocoa flavanols available in a cocoa extract supplement today. Each serving of CocoaVia® supplement delivers 375 mg of cocoa flavanols.
