Xocai chocolate can assist with your health treatment plan
From press release
Nine out of 10 people eat chocolate and 50 percent of them say they can’t live without it. The average American eats 12 pounds of chocolate per year.
Xocai, which is pronounced “showsigh,” is a delicious, dark Belgian chocolate.
Health benefits of dark chocolate
Double-blind, peer-reviewed and published clinical studies by major universities have shown the following with regard to the health benefits of dark chocolate: assists cardiovascular health; helps with joint inflammation; works as an appetite suppressant; increases serotonin levels; decreases LDL—bad cholesterol; controls bloodsugar; regulates blood pressure; works as a natural antihistamine; and helps with chronic fatigue.
Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) is a significant industry standardized test, adopted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) as a way to measure the total antioxidant potency of foods and nutritional supplements. ORAC values measure the capacity of a food to absorb oxygen-free radicals.
The USDA recommends we have 3,000-5,000 ORAC (or units of antioxidants) per day. For example, 3 1/2 ounces of blueberries or 6 1/2 pounds of tomatoes contain 2,400 ORAC points.
According to Brunswick Labs (http://brunswicklabs.com), one piece of Xocai chocolate contains 5,100 ORAC points.
Xocai is different from all other chocolate on the market. MXI Corporation and their manufacturer of raw, unprocessed cocoa, invented a patented “cold-press process” that keeps all the antioxidants, flavonoids and nutrients intact. This chocolate contains no preservatives, waxes, fillers, processed sugar, trans fats or added caffeine. The chocolate uses raw can sugar, and contains natural cocoa butter from the cocoa bean.
The typical heat processing method destroys up to 80 percent of chocolate’s vital nutrients. That’s the process used in chocolate products found on store shelves.
Chocolate products found on store shelves also use processed cocoa powder and processed sugars, along with bad fats, fillers, waxes, preservatives and high amounts of calories.
Dr. Richard Cutler of the Anti-Aging Research Development of the National Institute of Health in Washington, D.C., said, “The amount of antioxidants in your body is directly proportional to how long and healthily you will live.”
Xocai products are independently tested by Brunswick Labs to verify their advertised antioxidant ability to fight free radicals, or their ORAC. Each product has the number of grams of ORAC printed on its wrapper.
If you suffer from poor heart health, arthritis, weight problems, mood problems, bad cholesterol, diabetes, high or low blood pressure, allergies or low energy levels, and are interested in learning more about Xocai, contact Rocky at (815) 641-6496. Dr. Eliot Brinton, M.D., a University of Utah scientist, reminds people, however: “This is not a drug, it’s a food. It is not intended to replace medications or medical care, but to support a treatment plan.”
