Are You Passionate About Chocolate?

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Health Chocolate in Lafayette Indianapolis, IN chocolate sales increase dramatically around Valentine’s Day. The Phoenix, AZ Wal-Mart and Oregon Costco often run out of Lindt and Dove special-edition Valentine’s boxes. Forgetful chocolate gift-givers dash into Lafayette convenience stores on their way home from work, hoping to find something fancier than a Kit-Kat bar. International chocolate sales hit $345 million in February 2009. Why is this heavenly confection associated with the most romantic of all holidays?

Perhaps it is because chocolate triggers the release of endorphins. Physical intimacy also causes the release of these ‘love chemicals’ that create pleasurable feelings.

Chocolate and romance have been linked for thousands of years. The Aztecs used cacao-based beverages in rituals involving the worship of Xochiquetzal. In Aztec mythology, Xochiquetzal is the female deity linked to fertility and sexuality. In more than one culture, cacao beans were used to woo women.

Why wait for Valentine’s Day? Why don’t you treat your Lafayette sweetheart to some decadent Xocai chocolate this week? Xocai has a complete line of delicious chocolate gifts.

If you and your lover enjoy sharing mugs of hot cocoa by a crackling fire, try Xocai Sipping Xocolate. Hot cocoa connoisseurs will appreciate the rich smoothness of Xocai’s premium hot chocolate beverage.

Your cookie lover will be in cookie heaven when you give him/her a box Xocai Powerhouse Cookies.

Xocai Nuggets are a good pick for chocolate candy eaters. If your love interest needs an energy boost, try Activ, Xe Energy or Xocai Protein Bars. (Who knows how that energy will be used?)

Why Do You Need Anthocyanins In Lafayette?

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Lafayette MLM Secrets Welcome to another fascinating Indianapolis, IN Xocai review!

Many of my previous articles have focused on cacao. Today, I want to talk about a class of chemical compounds called anthocyanins. The acai berry is rich in anthocyanins, a powerful antioxidant. Remember, cacao and acai are the dynamic duo in Xocai dark chocolate.

Red, orange, purple, and blue plants get their pigmentation from anthocyanins, as well as the russet, gold, and magenta autumn leaves we see around Lafayette. It’s not hard to imagine that vibrant anthocyanin-rich foods like red bell peppers, blackberries, and purple cabbage are healthy – they appear to be bursting with nutrients. You can find anthocyanin foods in any Phoenix, AZ grocery store. Just look for deeply colored fruits and vegetables such as blueberries, cranberries, currants, red onions, egg-plant and the purple sweet potato.

Active Indianapolis, IN folks who work out regularly may be interested to know that anthocyanins may reduce muscle stiffness, increase blood flow, and reduce inflammation. Lafayette people at risk for communicable illnesses can benefit from antioxidants because they have been shown to strengthen the immune system. Anthocyanins are also believed to benefit vision and aid in weight loss.

Xocai food scientists have reformulated each Xocai product to create the most nutritious line of health chocolates available anywhere. See www.mxicorp.com to view the ORAC scores for the new formulations.

You can order anthocyanin-rich Xocai (say that three times fast!) by calling me, Nena Pruitt-Merrill at 765-427-4963.

What Is An Adaptogen?

Indianapolis, IN Antioxidant Chocolate Call me for more information about adaptogens at 765-427-4963.

When we are healthy, our body works as a complex machine that self-regulates the processes that are essential to life. Our heart tirelessly powers circulation, our respiratory system hums along exchanging oxygen and carbon dioxide, and our nervous system reliably directs our muscular system to allow both voluntary and involuntary movement.

Homeostasis is a state of balance in which all the bodily systems are are working properly. The endocrine system maintains homeostasis by producing and secreting hormones in response to positive and negative feedback.

Xocai Xe Energy drink contains several ingredients that help maintain homeostasis. Guarana, Maca, Yerbe Mate and Cocao are all known as ‘adaptogens’. Adaptogens are herbs that positively affect the entire organism as a whole. They promote general well-being, stamina and vitality. They help us manage stress without getting sick. They help us stay calm and focused so we can function at our best.

When our bodies are operating in a state of homeostatic imbalance, we are at risk for disease. Some conditions caused by a lack of homeostasis are diabetes, hypoglycemia and dehydration.

Guilt-Free Chocolate in Lafayette

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

Guilt-Free Chocolate in Lafayette Jeanette L. Brooks of Xocai rejects the conventional wisdom about chocolate. While most people around Indianapolis, IN have accepted without question the idea that chocolate is the very antithesis of a healthy food, Jeanette decided to leverage the fact that chocolate is healthy, and created the world’s first healthy chocolate company.

Jeanette acknowledges that traditional chocolate candy sold in Phoenix, AZ and Oregon convenience stores is bad for us. It contains tropical oils, refined sugar, wax and a host of artificial flavors and colors. In fact, the chocolate we have all grown up with has very little actual chocolate.

Jeanette decided to find a way to create healthy antioxidant chocolate. Jeanette aimed high. She didn’t set out to merely create a health-neutral chocolate; one that, though not harmful, was not exactly beneficial. She was determined to formulate a truly healthy chocolate.

It wasn’t easy. Jeanette and Xocai co-founder Andrew Brooks circled the globe researching cacao growers and chocolate processing operations. They discovered that the cacao bean with the highest concentration of antioxidants is grown in the Republic of Ivory Coast, Africa.

In order to transform the cacao bean into a delicious health-enhancing food, it was necessary to develop a process that did not require harmful additives. This was a significant hurdle. One of the main reasons that traditional chocolate is so bad for us is because harmful ingredients are used to process the super-healthy cacao bean. These ingredients are used as emulsifiers, preservatives, flavorings and cheap fillers.

Jeanette and her team invented a cold-press method that is unique to Xocai weight-loss chocolate. This processing method makes it possible to transform the cacao bean into an edible form that retains all the nutrients without adding the adverse ingredients.

Is your mouth watering for a dark chocolate treat? Call 765-427-4963 to order Xocai in Indianapolis, IN and the surrounding areas.

Empty calories? Taboo for diabetics? Artery-clogging? With Xocai healthy chocolate, sometimes called ‘New York Times chocolate‘, you can forget everything you ever learned about the world’s favorite food. You can eat Xocai chocolate to your hearts content with zero guilt. And when you lick the creamy chocolate off the tips of your fingers, you can thank Jeanette for that moment of bliss.

Is Xocai Chocolate Really Good For You?

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

Lafayette Antioxidant Chocolate I was cruising around the web in my Lafayette 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 Nena Pruitt-Merrill, an independent Xocai distributor based in Lafayette, Indiana. If you would like to try the type of healthy dark chocolate described in the Harvard Medical School article, contact me at 765-427-4963 or nena46@comcast.net.
