‘Biotic’ means ‘life’. (It has the same ‘bio’ root such as ‘biology’ and ‘biography’.) Probiotic, therefore, means ‘pro-life’. Probiotics are living microorganisms that maintain and improve health. Xocai has discovered that chocolate is one of the most effective delivery systems for probiotics.
Probiotics play a role in immune strength and digestive function. According to the American College of Gastroenterology, 95 million Americans suffer from digestive problems. Some 60 million have heartburn, 50 million have irritable bowel syndrome, and 20 million suffer from stomach ulcers.
Perhaps you are one of these people who are troubled by digestive problems. Have you ever thought that eating chocolate could help? Of course the Snickers and Hershey bars sold at any grocery store are not the answer (hello diarrhea), however, Xocai XoBiotic squares deliver to your GI tract the microrganisms it needs for proper digestive function.
An 11 gram square of Xocai XoBiotic chocolate contains one billion microorganisms (the good kind!) of two types; Lactobacillus Helveticus R0052 and Bifido Bacterium Longum R0175.
If you are like many chocolate lovers, you don’t need an extra reason to eat Xocai antioxidant chocolate. However, isn’t it good to know that there is a Xocai dark chocolate product that not only contains antioxidants, it contains the ‘good bacteria’ that can promote digestive health?
Discover your life on chocolate
Your body stores magnesium in your bones, tissues and organs. Only 1 percent is found in your blood, but it is critical that the blood level remains constant. Magnesium plays a role in over 300 biochemical processes including blood pressure control, heart rhythm, muscle and nerve function, energy metabolism, protein synthesis, blood sugar regulation and cell growth and repair.
Clearly, magnesium is a vital mineral that must be consumed regularly. Xocai healthy chocolate products, made from cold-processed magnesium-rich cacao, can help people make sure they get enough of this miracle mineral.
Some people may require extra magnesium.
Many common medicines prescribed by doctors can cause a magnesium deficiency because they either limit absorption or trigger magnesium loss. Diuretics, antibiotics, and cancer medications (anti-neoplastic) can necessitate magnesium supplementation. Diabetics with hyperglycemia may be at risk for magnesium deficiency. Crohn’s disease, gluten sensitivity, and other intestinal disorders can cause deficiencies. As with many other nutritional deficiencies, seniors are at a greater risk.
