I was sitting around twiddling my thumbs when I realized that chocolate is supposedly a healthy food. I typed into google “chocolate pills” and I came across a slew of articles from early 2014 talking about a group of 18,000 people that were being studied under the administrated of very high doses of cocoa flavanols.
So now there’s this product called “CocoaVia” that seems to be owned by Mars Inc, the candy company. Mars Inc. has a patent on the process by which cocoa flavanols are extracted and initially wanted to put it in pill form. It seems that isn’t available yet, or I just can’t find them, and unfortunately the product I linked to is not exactly… cheap. I’m hoping a pill will be available eventually.
Still, the research I’ve taken a cursory glance at looks very promising. The research being done now by Mars Inc. and Brigham (Harvard affiliate) won’t be available for review until 2019. Until then, does anyone think they might try some of this? If nobody is already, I might just order some myself first and report back.
