What Is An Adaptogen?

Minneapolis Antioxidant Chocolate Call me for more information about adaptogens at 952-258-9779.

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.

Does Chocolate Weight Loss Really Work?

St. Paul Xocai Scam Here is some great news for all St. Paul chocoholics, St. Cloud dieters, busy Mankato students and Minneapolis entrepreneurs. In June 2010, Xocai (the antioxidant dark chocolate company) sponsored a weight-loss pilot study which followed 50 participants. The healthy chocolate dieters substituted 2 meals daily with the X-ProteinMeal Replacement Shake.

The study has concluded and I am excited to report that the Xocai review results are phenomenal! The total combined chocolate weight loss was 1,569 pounds! That’s an average of 31 pounds per person! I’d like to see Shakopee Weigh Watchers, St. Paul NutriSystem, or Mankato Slim Fast users match that!

Another key health factor is waist circumference. The average reduction for the Xocai chocolate diet participants was 5.8 inches. How many of you Minneapolis boomers want to shrink your muffin tops by eating dark chocolate?

Xocai Dark Chocolate is a Brain Food

Shakopee Xocai Scam Minneapolis seniors with high blood pressure should be aware that hypertension may contribute to diminishing mental function in Minnesota elderly.

The following is from Psychology Today:

“A number of vegetable-based foods—among them tea, purple grapes, cranberries, as well as cocoa—are rich in antioxidants. But chocolate has its own unique profile of flavanols. German scientists recently found that cocoa—but not green or black tea—lowers blood pressure in people being treated for hypertension. Even moderate degrees of high blood pressure, researchers believe, are at the root of the cognitive decline seen in aging.”

Shakopee and St. Paul chocoholics know that Xocai weight-loss chocolate with acai berries is good for their soul. Now they can feel good about the fact that it is also good for their brain.

It doesn’t take a genius to realize that New York Times Chocolate is a billion-dollar industry that generates steady profit in Shakopee, Minnesota and all around the Minneapolis area.

Fish Oil or Chocolate For Shakopee Minnesota?

Shakopee Xocai Chocolate Omega 3 has been the subject of considerable attention in the Minneapolis medical community in the past few years.

“It not only plays a vital role in the health of the membrane of every cell in our body, it also helps protect us from a number of key health threats” says Laurie Tansman, a nutritionist at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York.

Because our bodies cannot manufacture Omega 3, we have to get it from the foods we eat. Gleaning enough Omega 3 from the average diet is difficult and there is another tricky challenge to the Omega 3 dilemma; maintaining the proper balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6. These essential fatty acids work in tandem to perform important physiological functions and guard against many chronic conditions.

Minneapolis dietitians recommend a ratio of 4 parts Omega 3 to 1 part Omega 6. The typical Twin Cities diet contains 20 times more Omega 6 than Omega 3! Clearly, most of us have a long way to go to correct the imbalance.

If your great-grandmother gave each of her children a spoonful of cod liver oil every day, she instinctively understood the critical necessity of Omega 3. If you want your St. Paul family to get enough Omega 3, you could give them fish oil in liquid or capsules (-Keep a few tins of Altoids on hand) or, you could give them Xocai Chocolate Omega Squares.

Xocai Omega Squares have 200mg of DHA and EPA per three 11 gram squares. If you enjoy St. Paul Xocai Chocolate Omega Squares daily, you will eventually correct the Omega 3-Omega 6 imbalance in your body.

The following information about Omega 3 is from the Harvard School of Public Health:

“Omega 3 fatty acids are also associated with many health benefits, including protection against heart disease and possibly stroke. New studies are identifying potential benefits for a wide range of conditions including cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and other autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

Shakopee Acai Berry Chocolate

New Hot Business in Minneapolis Hello, you’ve found the blog for the Shakopee new hot business Xocai healthy dark chocolate.

Previous Xocai blog articles have talked at length about cold-processed cacao, the key ingredient in Xocai weight-loss chocolate. Today’s article focuses on another super food used in Xocai chocolates: the amazing berry acai.

Unlike berries grown around St. Paul and St. Cloud, the acai berry is native to the Amazon rain forest and, unfortunately, is highly perishable. In fact, acai berries go bad within one day of being picked. Therefore, it is nearly impossible to buy acai berry juice for daily consumption.

Luckily, freeze-dried acai berry powder retains all the nutrients of fresh acai pulp and can be shipped to Minneapolis without harm.

Dr. Nicholas Perricone, MD, FACN touted the acai berry and its health and skin benefits on Oprah several years ago. He said the acai berry is ‘one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world!’ The following information taken from Dr. Perricone’s acai berry recommendation is found on Oprah’s website. Dr. Perricone listed the following about the acai berry:

  • A remarkable concentration of antioxidants that help combat premature aging, with 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes and 10 to 30 times the anthocyanins of red wine.
  • A synergy of monounsaturated (healthy) fats, dietary fiber and phytosterols to help promote cardiovascular and digestive health.
  • An almost perfect essential amino acid complex in conjunction with valuable trace minerals, vital to proper muscle contraction and regeneration.

Dr. Perricone, MD, FACN, is known as the Father of the Inflammation Theory of Aging and a clinical and research dermatologist.

Is Xocai Chocolate Really Good For You?

Shakopee Antioxidant Chocolate I was cruising around the web in my Shakopee 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 Shannon Schillinger, an independent Xocai distributor based in Shakopee, Minnesota. If you would like to try the type of healthy dark chocolate described in the Harvard Medical School article, contact me at 952-258-9779 or sshealthychocolate@gmail.com. If you live in St. Paul, St. Cloud or Mankato, you may want to come to my next Xocai healthy chocolate discussion.

Remember, you don’t have to give up ‘New York Times chocolate’ to maintain health and vigor. You can think of Xocai antioxidant chocolate as a sweet treat or as a health supplement. Either way, it will benefit both your body and mind.

What is CRP And Why Is It Important For Shakopee?

Minneapolis Health Chocolate Hi, I am Shakopee Xocai blogger Shannon Schillinger. Today’s post explores the link between CRP levels, inflammation and heart disease. What is CRP? CRP is a measure of C-reactive protein in the blood. You can get your CRP tested when you get your cholesterol measured. A high level of CRP tells you that inflammation is present in your body.

The health dangers of inflammation are well established. If your blood vessels are inflamed, you may be at risk for heart disease. A high CRP level can occur even if no other heart disease risk factors are present. The Mayo Clinic has an article on this if you want to read more.

What does this have to do with Xocai health chocolate?

Antioxidants lower CRP levels, thereby reducing inflammation. The main ingredient in Xocai healthy chocolate is cacao. Cacao is the #1 Antioxidant Food.

The National Institute of Aging conducted a study in 2004 which found a link between antioxidant supplements and lower CRP levels. According to the researchers: “taking an antioxidant supplement was associated with CRP levels similar to those seen in those who exercised 180 minutes/week or more and did not take supplements.

I am certainly not recommending that you stop exercising. I just wanted to point out that the NIA study showed just how effective antioxidant supplements are in reducing CRP levels even in people who do not exercise. Obviously, the best combination for heart health is antioxidant consumption coupled with regular exercise.

How do I get my antioxidants? Xocai healthy chocolate, of course! Of all the antioxidant-rich foods available in Minneapolis, Xocai dark chocolate is the most delicious and satisfying.

I share Xocai with people in St. Paul, St. Cloud, and Mankato. If you come to one of my Xocai reviews you can sample Xocai products while learning about chocolate health benefits. Call me anytime at 952-258-9779 to schedule a meeting.

I look forward to hearing from you.
