|Title:||FLAVIOLA Study Results|
|Release Date:||Sep 9, 2015|
Two recently published studies in the journals Age and the British Journal of Nutrition (BJN), as a part of the FLAVIOLA project, demonstrate that consuming cocoa flavanols improves cardiovascular function and lessens the burden on the heart that comes with the ageing and stiffening of arteries. The studies also provide novel data to indicate that intake of cocoa flavanols reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD).
