WEST CHESTER, PA -- Mars Drinks is introducing Steel Horse Coffee enhanced with cocoa flavanols to boost circulation, which can lead employees to be more productive. It is exclusively available in Freshpacks for Mars Drinks' single-cup Flavia beverage system.

Steel Horse Coffee pairs the boost of coffee, shown to increase mental clarity and alertness, with 150mg. of circulation-supporting cocoa flavanols. Cocoa flavanols are naturally occurring phytonutrients compounds that are derived from cocoa beans. Studies have found they help keep blood vessels healthy and help support a healthy flow of oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body.

"At Mars Drinks we aim to develop products that help support some of the most important elements of a company's workforce: energy and focus in the workplace," said Mars Drinks regional president Xavier Unkovic. "With this notion, we developed a revolutionary hot drink that does more than a cup of coffee by adding circulation-supporting cocoa flavanols."

Mars Inc., parent of Mars Drink, is a leader in cocoa research. It has developed the patented Cocoapro process to extract the cocoa flavanols directly from the cocoa bean.
