Do You Love Chocolate?

Enjoy this sample post from my new blog: I love Chocolate ...

Do you love chocolate? I sure do!

Welcome to my blog about chocolate. It isn't just about any ordinary chocolate but honest to goodness, guilt-free good for you chocolate!

You and I love chocolate. And we are not alone. Did you know that 9 out of 10 people crave chocolate? And 1 out every 2 people eat it every day? Outstanding!

But I promised to tell you about chocolate that was guilt-free and good for you too. First though I'd like to talk about something called antioxidants. Perhaps your healthcare professional has talked with you and suggested that you might need more antioxidants in your diet?

What are anti-oxidants? Antioxidants are molecules which prevent the damaging effects of free radicals in the body. The damage caused by the oxygen free radicals is called oxidation.So what is oxidation? Have you ever seen an old car with great chunks of rust on it? That rust is oxidation. Or think of a banana that has turned brown. That too is oxidation.

Less than 10% of North Americans are consuming enough of the fruits and vegetables recommended to obtain the necessary recommended amount of antioxidants that our bodies need to fight off the effects of oxidation.

Did you know that heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer and other age-related diseases have been linked to free radical damage?

Cacao (cocoa) is the highest antioxidant food in the world!

Yes, that right! Unprocessed raw cacao (raw chocolate) is the highest source of antioxidants in the world. Cacao beans contain over 300 chemically identifiable compounds making it one of the most complex food supplements in the world.

Unprocessed raw cacao is packed with potent antioxidants called flavonoids. Research has demonstrated that flavonoids play an important role in protecting the cacao plant. Further research has concluded that these same natural protective compounds in cacao beans when consumed by humans improves health by protecting cells from the damaging effects of free radicals

More recently recognized, also, is the importance of the Acai berry found deep in the Amazon jungle. The Acai berry has been described as nature's most complete food not only because it is bursting with antioxidants but also because it is loaded with omega six and omega nine fatty acids, eight of the nine essential amino acids, calcium, iron and it has a protein composition similar to eggs. The Acai berry is the second highest source of antioxidants in the world. It has over 14 times more antioxidants than raw spinach.

The combination of the world's two greatest super foods, the raw cacao and the Acai berry which are found exclusively in all Xocai products is the MXI Corp. soluton.

Xocai products are produced with rich unprocessed non- alkalized, non-lecithinized cacao powder that is high in antioxidants due to a closely monitored fermentation, drying and roasting process.

Xocai products are the perfect delivery system for the antioxidants your body needs while eliminating almost all of the fat and sugar typically found in other chocolate products.

Now you can eat chocolate guilt free.
