Foods Highest in Flavanols

Flavanols are prized plant compounds that exhibit uniquely powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. They appear to be especially helpful for cardiovascular health and brain health. Here are the foods that contain highest amounts of flavanols :

  • Cocoa
  • Dark chocolate (70% or higher cacao)
  • Green, black and oolong tea (with matcha having the most)
  • Apples
  • Berries
  • Red/purple grapes
  • Cherries
  • Almonds
