Xocai: Healthy Chocolate That Tastes Great Too!

 

Most people love chocolate. We love its flavor, its aroma, its texture. In fact, we love it so much that over a billion people eat chocolate every day. Surprisingly, however, many of us don’t realize that at the heart of chocolate is a little bean called cacao.

Cacao comes from a tree whose origins date back thousands of years to the ancient peoples of Mesoamerica. This small bean possesses some impressive health-promoting properties that are increasingly supported by science. Most notable is its antioxidant content. Cacao contains potent compounds such as flavonols, polyphenols and procyanidins and epicatechins that exert unique properties. Cacao is also rich in several B vitamins, minerals such as copper, magnesium and zinc, amino acids and mood-boosting chemicals like phenylethylamine (PEA) and theobromine.

This nutritional firepower translates to numerous health benefits. In fact, science now tells us that cacao and dark, healthy chocolate can support the health of most of the body’s major systems. Some of these human health benefits include:

  • Superior antioxidant protection
  • Increased cardiovascular support
  • Anti-aging effects
  • Support of the brain mental function
  • Healthy inflammatory response
  • Significant energy boost
  • Improved immune function
  • Enhanced blood-sugar control
  • Increased ability to maintain a healthy weight
  • Controlled appetite and cravings
  • Improved mood and emotional health

However, now all chocolate is created equal. These health benefits are not derived from chocolate candy….it must be properly processed health-grade chocolate. With Xocai, can experience healthy chocolate that tastes great too! Ask about Healthy Chocolate at your next visit to NDDA.
