Xocai Healthy Chocolate – Antioxidant Content Compared to Monavie, Xango, Noni, & Gogi

Today’s blog is about comparing the antioxidant content of Xocai Healthy Chocolate with that of Monavie, Xango, Tahitian Noni, and Himalayan Gogi.

In case you didn’t know, Antioxidants are vital to our health and wellness because they effectively absorb the Free Radicals that are responsible both  for aging and for over 200 degenerative diseases (including diabetes, cancer, heart attack, and stroke.) Free Radicals are the result of oxidation (the process by which an apple turns brown when you cut it open.) They  are present in everyone as a normal byproduct of breathing, eating, sleeping, and exercising.

Consuming food rich in antioxidants is the only way to combat excessive amounts of free radicals in our bodies and to prevent “oxidative damage” (the damage caused by free radicals.)

The USDA and Brunswick Laboratories developed a scale for determining how many antioxidants are present in food. This is referred to as an ORAC value, which stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity.

The USDA recommends a minimum intake of 3,000 to 5,000 ORAC daily. People who are exposed to excessive toxins, or engage in frequent excercise need even more.

It turns out that raw, unprocessed  Cocoa is the most antioxidant rich food on the planet, but more than 50%  of that medicinal value is destroyed when the cocoa is processed. Xocai Healthy Chocolate is different because of the patented cold-press method of processing it. One serving of the XPowerSquares product (12g), for example has as much antioxidants as 12 lbs. of Tomatoes, or 1.91 lbs. of Spinach, or 2 lbs. of Raspberries.

So how does the ORAC value of Xocai Healthy Chocolate compare to that of Monavie, Xango, Tahitian Noi, and Himalayan Gogi. According to lab test results of Brunswick laboratories, Xocai Healthy Chocolate has about 5 Times as many antioxidants as these other juices.

ORAC Values (per fluid ounce:)

Xocai Healthy Chocolate   5270

Monavie  1,027

Xango   550

Tahitian Noni   500

Himalayan Gogi 400

This is one of the reasons I feel so good giving it to my children.

These other juices are great products, and the companies that produce them are great companies. One reason that I’m so excited about the Xocai Healthy Chocolate business opportunity is because if I can get nutritional value and I have a juice in one hand, and some chocolate in the other, I think 9 out of 10 people are going to choose the chocolate! It’s one of the most marketable products in the world.
