Many people don't realize that unprocessed Cacao is the
highest source of antioxidants in the world, and that
Googling "cacao" and "health" will return over a million
results. And it's not just NBC, CNN, and CBS that are
reporting on the healthy benefits of chocolate, it's medical
professionals, scientists, and researchers. So eat more
chocolate! Most commercial chocolate is anything but
unprosessed. Chocolate treats found on store shelves lose
their healthy benefits from over prosessing, such as
dutching and roasting and most store brands add
unhealthy processed sugar, milk, fats, filler, waxes and
XOCAI is Healthy Chocolate
Our Healthy Chocolate is produced with pure unprocessed cacao that is blanched, unfermented, sun-dried, non-roasted, non-alkalized, non-lecithinized, and coldpressed. Because these proprietary processes are closely monitored, Xocai delivers the maximum amount of antioxidants naturally found in unprocessed cacao. Antioxidants, just as they sound, antioxidants are chemicals that prevent oxidation of other compounds.
Think about bananas turning brown or metal rusting, both are results of oxidation; a process of adding oxygen to a compound. This process can produce "free radical" molecules, which is an atom with an unpaired electron.
Science has taught us that oxidation occurs in our bodies naturally and certain behaviors can intensify the process, such as smoking, pollution, poor diet, and unchecked exposure to the sun. But science has also shown that we can defend against oxidation or free radical damage with antioxidants.
Health benefits of Cacao
In our bodies antioxidants can react with free radicals to make them more stable and less likely to cause damage to our lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids. Damage to these vital molecules has been linked to many common health issues and chronic diseases. Our bodies can defend against oxidation, but this ability declines with age. Eating antioxidant-rich foods can enhance our natural defenses. A few plant-based foods meet this criteria and are distinguished by their high polyphenol content.
A subclass of polyphenols are flavonoids that are found abundantly in cacao.
Research on flavonoids make them well-known for their antioxidant characteristics, their help in supporting the immune system, and their positive effect on the health of the cardiovascular system.
Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) is a standard for quantitating a food's ability to offset the harmful effects of free radicals. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Journal of the American Chemical Society, dark chocolate tops the list for ORAC on a per serving basis.
The Brunswick Labs Certification Program is a third party and independent laboratory test performed on Xocai products three times a year that certify the ORAC and Flavonoid values displayed on Xocai's product packaging.
"The Brunswick Labs Seal assures consumers that they are getting one of nature's premiere antioxidant-rich foods.
