Benefits of Cocoa

Many nutritionists, athletes and just every day folks advocate the benefits of eating cocoa. Some even call cocoa a Superfood!

One of the founders of Whole Bean Delights is a runner. Al has run 4 marathons, several half-marathons, and numerous other races. When he was 30, he ran a 4 minute 26 second mile. Over the last few years, Al has been experimenting with cocoa beans and has found that they provide extra energy.

Contrary to the effects of caffeine from coffee, cocoa beans have theobromine (a stimulant) which is a vasodilator. It does not do harm to you like coffee does while exercising.

When running long races, bring several packets of our cocoa beans in your running belt pouch. We also recommend eating a couple beans before a workout. The energy gain is from a natural source and is easy for the body to digest.

Because of Whole Bean Delights' unique, patentable process, we retain the whole cocoa bean in our food products and all its nutritional benefits.
