MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 1 (UPI) -- A Virginia cocoa extract supplement company said its survey of members of the baby boomer generation indicates 63 percent feel younger than their age.

The CocoaVia National Healthy Aging Outlook Survey (http://www.cocoavia.com/), conducted online by Toluna on half of Cocoavia, owned by Mars Inc. of McLean, Va., found 63 percent of the 2,200 adults ages 40-to-65 felt an average of 13 years younger than their age.

The Sept. 22-27 poll indicated 13 percent of women in the boomer generation feel 30 years old or younger.

The survey indicates 68 percent of boomers are enjoying the current phase of their lives and 78 percent described themselves as healthy.

The margin of error was 2 percentage points.
