CocoaNol®

Cocoa Flavanols

CocoaNol® is more than just cocoa – it’s cocoa that cares.

CocoaNol® is a Kosher cocoa bean extract developed for the nutritional products market. Using a proprietary extraction technique, CocoaNol® is offered in two distinct flavanol concentrations, not less than (NLT) 3% and NLT 7%. The first one is a high fiber version standardized to NLT 3% flavanols. The second is a clear, water soluble version standardized to NLT 7% flavanols. This delivery system allows dietary supplement, food, and beverage companies to drive new product innovation.

Flavanols: Emerging evidence suggests that cocoa flavanols, such as epicatechin or other catechins, can directly stimulate the nitric oxide synthase enzyme, therefore promoting cardiovascular health*. Possible mechanisms through which cocoa flavanols may provide cardiac support include inhibiting angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) and mediating nitric oxide.

There is an increasing body of evidence identifying the positive role cocoa extract supplementation may have on human health. While chocolate and cocoa products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease, the health benefits described below are founded in ongoing scientific research.

Cardiovascular Benefits:

  • May promote lipid profiles and maintain cholesterol levels within a healthy range*
  • May promote circulatory health by maintaining blood vessel elasticity, reducing arterial stiffness, improving flow-mediated vasodilation, and lowering blood pressure*
  • May support endothelial function and help maintain blood pressure levels already within normal limits by increasing nitric oxide production*
  • May lead to modest but relatively consistent and significant decreases in blood pressure*

Mood/Cognitive Benefits:

  • May have a positive effect on brain flow by increasing cerebral oxygenation*
  • May lead to decreased risk of stroke*
  • May have a positive effect on mood, calmness, endocrine stress activity, and cognitive testing*
