About Health Warrior

Health Warrior was founded in 2010 by college friends, Dan, Nick and Shane. The former collegiate athletes used to approach food as calories to burn during hours of daily practices. But after entering their professional lives, that carefree approach to nutrition met cold, hard, desk-bound reality. They went from running between meets and games to meetings and day care pick-ups. They eventually learned that what matters is the quality of calories over quantity. Read More

  • Give you sustained energy release
  • Strengthen your immune system
  • Make you feel fuller for longer

We use a lot of protein. Why you might ask?
Well, your body needs protein nearly as much as your lungs need air. Protein is essential for healthy body function, strong muscles, healthy skin, nails and hair.

Athletes often use protein to build muscle mass and to power their workouts.
Protein is also needed to keep your immune system functioning at full throttle and to fight off infection, which is why it's often used as a supplement to support people recovering from illness.

Adding protein to your diet also helps balance out blood sugar levels, helping you avoid those horrible mid-afternoon slumps. And, as if that wasn't enough, protein can also help support a weight-loss diet as it helps the body burn fat and can stave off hunger pangs between meals.

Our products are especially great for:

  • Sports people looking for a pre- or post-exercise boost
  • People watching their weight and looking to burn fat without losing muscle
  • Children who are hungry between meals
  • Busy mums on the go needing a natural energy lift
  • Anyone recovering from illness

Snack Review: Goodness Knows Very Cranberry Snack Squares



You're one of the first in the country to try new goodnessknows® luscious snack squares, and we hope you love them as much as we do! Tangy fruits, crunchy nuts, and our extraordinary deep chocolate – wonderful foods we brought together to create an amazingly gratifying snack. Our select cocoa beans are uniquely handled to retain cocoa flavanols, which help support the healthy circulation of nutrients and oxygen. Try goodnessknows® and let us know what you think!



The contrast between tangy-sweet cranberries and our extraordinary deep chocolate delights with every bite! Packed with roasted almonds, toasted rolled oats, and a hint of natural sweetness, this combination leaves you feeling happily satisfied.








What are Cocoa Flavanols?
Science is making a stronger case than ever for eating lots of fruits and vegetables. One reason: advances in the understanding of phytonutrients, compounds that help plants stay healthy and which may be important to human health as well.

Flavanols are phytonutrients found in apples, cherries, grapes, teas and chocolate…but cocoa has a unique mixture of flavanols, the exact combination of which can be found in no other food in nature!

Discovered centuries ago, cacao was first used to make a flavanol-infused beverage thought to have amazing restorative powers, thus earning cacao its reputation as "The food of the gods" by cultures as old as the Aztec.



What do they do?
Scientists at Mars have been studying cocoa flavanols and their effects on our bodies for two decades. To date, Mars has published more than 130 papers on cocoa.

What's been discovered is that cocoa flavanols help the body access its own, natural pool of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide helps blood vessels widen so blood can flow freely, carrying nutrients and oxygen to all parts of the body. Obviously, when nutrients and oxygen can make their way to our cells, our bodies are nourished, ready to help us do the things we want to do in life.

There are probably hundreds of products on the market containing chocolate or cocoa powder, but few could guarantee the 120 mg cocoa flavanol content you get in each serving of goodnessknows® luscious snack squares.

Slogan: We all need a really good snack!
