Are you a little bummed because you would love to get the benefits of chocolate but you just don't dig the bitter taste of dark chocolate? Fret no more...
We have all been told the darker the better the chocolate when it comes to heart health. The truth is it's really not about dark vs. milk chocolate. Heart health benefits are not totally related to type of chocolate, it's the amount of cocoa flavanols that counts, and that's determined by how the cocoa is processed. The makers of CocoaVia ($4.99/5 pack) chocolate bars guarantee high flavanol levels through their patented process. Additionally, CocoaVia contains plant sterols which are proven to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. The best part? The choice is yours: dark chocolate or milk chocolate. Whichever taste you prefer -- They're all yummy and you get the same benefits and with only 110 calories per bar, you won't be breaking your diet either.
Look for CocoaVia in grocery and drug stores near you or buy directly online from Walgreens.com.
