Cacao: Antioxidant Super Food

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 researches. So eat more chocolate!

Not so fast. Most commercial chocolate is anything but unprocessed. Chocolate treats found on store shelves lose their healthy benefits from over processing such as dutching and roasting, and most store brands add unhealthy processed sugar, milk, fats, fillers, waxes and preservatives.

Xoçai™ is Healthy Chocolate

Xoçai's 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, Xoçai™. 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.

Oxidation. 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 radicals" 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.

ORAC.

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.

Brunswick Labs.

The Brunswick Labs Certification Program is a third party and independent laboratory test performed on Xoçai™ products three times a year that certify the ORAC and Flavonoid values displayed on Xoçai's product packaging.

"The Brunswick Labs Seal assures consumers that they are getting one of nature's premiere antioxidant-rich foods." - Brunswick Labs

Conclusion:

Cacao is abundantly rich in Flavonoids. All-natural unprocessed cacao is healthier than commercially processed chocolate. Xoçai™ Healthy Chocolate is raw unprocessed chocolate that maintains cacao's natural Flavonoids.
