Abstract

Cocoa is derived from the seeds of the fruit of the Theobroma cacao tree and has a complex chemical composition. A number of compounds found in cocoa have documented physiological effects. In particular, a significant body of literature supports the role of cocoa polyphenols in maintaining cardiovascular health. Future studies on cocoa should be aimed at elucidating the mechanisms whereby cocoa polyphenols modulate cardiovascular function and at identifying individual polyphenolic compounds within cocoa that are efficacious.
