Of all of the rich and decadent foods consumers have to choose from, chocolate is by far one of the most popular. The sweet and creamy treat has been eaten by billions of people all over the world for centuries. And while it’s often perceived as indulgent and fattening, chocolate actually has a number of health benefits. Xocai, one of the health food industry’s fastest growing brands is now helping consumers enjoy the amazing taste of chocolate, without the guilt and negative impacts. By combining all natural unprocessed chocolate with the acai berry and other fruits, the Xocai line of products is changing the way consumers perceive chocolate, and making it possible for health-conscious individuals to indulge while still watching maintaining good health.

Chocolate is made from seeds from the cacao tree, which is native to South America. Throughout much of the world’s history, it has been treasured as a luxury good, and was previously used in a resistance building, fatigue fighting drink called Xocolatl by the Mayans and the Aztecs, and later by the European elite. Chocolate is still noted for its health boosting benefits today, and many modern scientists will attest to that fact. According to a research presented at a conference held by the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, chocolate can help to prevent or remedy a number of common ailments, including high blood pressure. Chocolate is also rich in antioxidants, which help to prevent or slow the oxidative damage to the body, and prevent related diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer and macular degeneration.

Chocolate, particularly dark organic chocolate has excellent antioxidant properties. Some brands I like include Rapunzel, Green & Black and Dagoba.

Antioxidants are essential in helping people prevent eye disease and helping to preserve vision for those with eye disease. There are numerous peer review research studies now demonstrating this for eye diseases such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and even cataracts.
