Is Xocai Chocolate Really Good For You?

   Posted by: Phil   in Healthy Chocolate, Xocai

Delta Antioxidant Chocolate I was cruising around the web in my Delta office the other day and came across an article from the Harvard Medical School. I was pleased to see this respected institution validate Xocai’s physiological benefits.

Here is an excerpt about endothelial function:

The endothelium is the thin inner layer of arteries. It’s responsible for producing nitric oxide, a tiny chemical that widens blood vessels and keeps their linings smooth. Can chocolate help? Doctors in Greece think it may. They fed 100 grams (about 3½ oz) of dark chocolate to 17 healthy volunteers and observed rapid improvement in endothelial function. Swiss investigators found similar effects from dark chocolate.

German scientists reported that flavanol-rich cocoa can reverse the endothelial dysfunction produced by smoking, and European doctors reported that dark chocolate appears to improve coronary artery function in heart transplant patients. There’s good news for nonsmoking, original-heart people, too, since Harvard researchers found that cocoa can blunt the endothelial dysfunction associated with aging.

I am Phil Hoskins, an independent Xocai distributor based in Delta, BC. If you would like to try the type of healthy dark chocolate described in the Harvard Medical School article, contact me at 604.943.8598 or phil@philhoskins.com. If you live in Richmond, Surrey or Langley, you may want to come to my next Xocai healthy chocolate discussion.

Remember, you don’t have to give up ‘New York Times chocolate’ to maintain health and vigor. You can think of Xocai antioxidant chocolate as a sweet treat or as a health supplement. Either way, it will benefit both your body and mind.
