Why Xocai For Atlanta Georgia?

Why Xocai For Atlanta Georgia There are plenty of health foods on the Atlanta market. What is so special about Xocai healthy chocolate?

Antioxidant Content
Raw cacao has the highest concentration of antioxidants of any other Atlanta food. Antioxidants improve health by boosting immunity, supporting vascular function, reducing cellular damage, and increasing energy. Every system and organ in the body benefits from antioxidants. Xocai also contains acai berry, nature’s number two antioxidant food.

Patented Manufacturing Process
Only MXI preserves the natural nutrients in Atlanta Xocai healthy chocolate by using a cold-processing method. Other chocolate manufacturers use methods that kill much of the natural nutrients in raw cacao. The result is a substance that bears little chemical resemblance to natural cacao.

Xocai Healthy Chocolate Is Not Candy
Because MXI chocolate is a potent health food, you can eat Xocai as a meal. You don’t need to feel guilty about it or limit your intake. If you currently enjoy chocolate regularly, replace your unhealthy chocolate with Xocai pure dark chocolate and experience the health benefits of Xocai.

Xocai Offers a Full Line of Healthy Chocolate Products
MXI makes an Atlanta healthy chocolate product for every kind of chocolate enthusiast. See www.mxicorp.com for descriptions and nutritional information for each Xocai healthy chocolate product.

MXI Healthy Chocolate is a Clean Food Product
Xocai does not add dangerous chemicals or cheap fillers to its products. You get pure dark chocolate and acai berries.

Hundreds of Scientific Studies Validate the Benefits of Dark Chocolate
A few minutes of Internet research can confirm dark chocolate’s standing in the medical and scientific community.

Third Party Certification
Brunswick Labs, the premier testing organization for antioxidant foods, certifies the Xocai nutritional data.

The Atlanta Xocai Opportunity Makes Sense
Xocai’s parent company, MXI Corp. is a stable, debt-free company. The Xocai Georgia business opportunity is based on a healthy company, a recession-proof market, and a one-of-a-kind product.

Reason #19 to Eat Xocai – Fast Food Causes Depression!

Ok, I simply find this fascinating!  Two different studies, one in the United Kingdom and one in Spain, found a link between people who eat fast food and depression!  You ARE what you eat! If you put crappy food into your body, you get crappy results.  What is so fascinating to me is that there appears to be a correlation with mental health, not just physical health.

Professor Sanchez-Villegas with the Spanish University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, found that

You ARE what you eat!

“participants with an elevated consumption of trans-fats presented up to a 48 percent increase in the risk of depression when they were compared to participants who did  not consume these fats.”  The researchers in London found that participants whose diet was high in saturated fats and processed foods were at a 58 percent higher risk of depression.

48-58%!!! That is HUGE!

Reason number 19 to eat Xocai the Healthy Chocolate superfood in Atlanta, Georgia and the Southeast US.  Mood!   Chocolate positively improves blood flow to the brain, thereby affecting mental function, cognition and mood.  Several chemicals in cocoa enhance mood, decrease depression and moderate emotional response.  This is based on research like the study documented in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition that found that “chocolate preference in old age was associated with better health, optimism and better psychological well-being.” (2008 Feb; 62(2):247-53. Chocolate, well-being and health among elderly men.)  For that matter, just google Dark Chocolate Mental Health.  There is a plethora of research on cocoa helping with mood disorders.

Cocoa Flavanols Improve Eye & Brain Function, Study Says

Cocoa Flavanols documented health benefits

Having grown up in a family with a medical doctor who was always on the cutting edge in his field, I have always had a fascination with research behind why things work in our bodies.  There is so much interesting research on cocoa flavanols out there.  One recent study from researchers at the University of Reading claims that consuming cocoa flavanols may improve certain aspects of eye and brain function.

It is important to know that cocoa is extremely high in flavanols, which has documented health benefits.   The authors of this particular study, which can be found in the journal, Physiology & Behavior, concluded that “this is the first report of acute effects of cocoa flavanols on the efficiency of visual function.”  The researchers believe that these effects may be explained by “increased cerebral blood flow caused by cocoa flavanols, although in the case of contrast sensitivity there may be an additional contribution from cocoa flavanol-induced retinal blood flow changes.”  The researchers found that cocoa flavanols improved visual contrast sensitivity and reduced the time required to detect motion direction.  They stated, “A reduction in the time required to integrate visual motion could be beneficial in time critical everyday tasks, such as driving.”  Cocoa flavanols increased response speed in simple tasks.

The answer to me?  Eat more chocolate!  Healthy Chocolate, that is.

Lose Inches Around the Middle Without Trying? Priceless!

YouTube Preview Image

Caroline King here, sharing a little about the Xocai High-Antioxidant Protein Shake.  As you hear in the video, I have to go shopping!  None of my clothes from last summer fit me anymore!

I drink one shake a day for breakfast, mostly for the health benefits that are a byproduct of ingesting so many antioxidants first thing in the morning.  My favorite way to drink it is with 8 ounces of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 2 scoops of the high antioxidant protein shake powder, 2 small spoonfuls of raw coconut, 5-6 almonds, 5 pieces of ice and blend it up in a blender.  It tastes like an Almond Joy – it’s AMAZING!!!  I have never felt better and without trying, I am losing those dreaded inches around my middle that will not go away no matter HOW many sit ups I do.

If you want to try the Xocai High-Antioxidant Protein Shake, fill out the Contact Us form and I’ll connect with you to let you sample it.  I love it!

Do the Research on Antioxidants!

YouTube Preview Image

Stacey Adams and Tricia Holder are on camera, passionately spreading the word about how important antioxidants are to our health. As they say, just “google” antioxidants along with the disease of your choice and check out how much research is available on the power of antioxidants.

What better way to pack your body with antioxidants in Atlanta, Georgia, than to eat Xocai Healthy Chocolate?  Just imagine… every Xocai chocolate has the antioxidant equivalent to a half pound of raw spinach or a whole box of blueberries.  To maintain the preventative levels of antioxidants in our bodies on a daily basis, we should consume three times that amount.  I can’t eat a pound and a half of raw spinach every day, but I have no problem eating a superfood like Healthy Chocolate three times a day!

If you would like to sample Xocai, simply fill out the Contact Us form and Caroline King will be in touch soon!

Lauren’s Run, founded in 1992 in memory of Lauren Zagoria, a precious two-year old from Atlanta with big, golden curls, and continuing also in memory of Lauren Kochman, a beautiful 3 year old with big brown eyes who lost her battle with neuroblastoma just before the first Lauren’s Run took place. Lauren’s Run has raised more than $3 million for pediatric cancer research. For more information on Lauren’s Run please visit www.curechildhoodcancer.org.

CURE is a non-profit organization dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through research, education, and support of patients and their families. Mission: CURE Childhood Cancer was founded in 1975 by parents who knew firsthand the heartbreak and fear of having a child with cancer. They set out to improve the odds for these kids and help their families face the challenge. Due to research, much progress has been made since that time. The survival rate for children with cancer has increased dramatically to its current rate of nearly eight out of ten. Best of all, researchers feel they will discover a cure in our lifetime. Until then, there is much to be done, and that is where CURE comes in. They believe childhood cancer can be cured. CURE’s mission includes funding important research and providing support programs to help children and their families deal with this dreadful disease.

Xocai Healthy Chocolate is the first-to-market cold-pressed dark chocolate.  Since it is cold-pressed, it maintains the high number of antioxidants found naturally in cocoa, that the candy in the store does not.  For instance, one Xocai chocolate has the equivalent of 1/2 pound of raw spinach in antioxidants.  Xocai can only be ordered through an independent distributor.  If interested, please contact Caroline King, 404-966-2078.

Yes, It Grows On Trees (Just Not Around Atlanta)!

Atlanta MLM Secrets Think about the last time you got to enjoy chocolate while out and around Atlanta. Perhaps it was a chocolate milkshake at a Metro Atlanta restaurant. Maybe it was a Snickers bar you picked up at a Georgia 7-11 whose wrapper is still stuffed in a cup holder in your car. It could have been a chocolate chip cookie still warm from the oven.

Whatever it was, did you pause to think about where the chocolate came from? Though it seems to come straight from heaven, chocolate is actually produced from cacao, a plant-based food. Just like peaches, almonds, and bananas, cacao is a natural substance that comes from a tree. Technically, cacao is a fruit.

The theobroma cacao is an equatorial tree whose fruit is shaped somewhat like a football. These color of the pods range from a purplish-brown to a golden shade and can grow to over a foot long. The tree is extremely productive, it shoots out pods year-round and can produce nearly two thousand per year. My favorite thing about the cacao is that its pods not only hang from its branches, they even sprout directly from the trunk -biological efficiency at its best!

Southeast US Xocai healthy chocolate products are made from nature’s most potent source of antioxidants. Cacao seeds have more antioxidants than blueberries, grapes and green tea. The more I learn about Xocai healthy chocolate, the more I enjoy sharing Xocai with health-conscience Atlanta folks who want to enjoy chocolate without guilt.

Would you like to sample Xocai antioxidant chocolate? I would be happy to meet with you soon. Give me a call at 404-966-2078. I am Caroline King, your Atlanta source for weight-loss chocolate.
