Salida Low Start-Up Cost Business Many of my Salida Xocai healthy chocolate blog articles have focused on the link between vascular health and antioxidant levels. Two of the most potent antioxidants are epicatechins and catechins.

Todays’ Poncha Springs chocolate article explores the link between antioxidants in chocolate and peak brain function. As it turns out, antioxidants improve brain function precisely because they promote healthy blood flow. A steady supply of blood brings oxygen to the brain. Cognitive functions such as memory, reasoning, and concentration are hampered when the brain is deprived of blood.

Numerous studies have shown the link between epicatechins and catechins on brain function.

The International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine reported on a study that examined how flavanols affected mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s dementia.

“Overall, a great deal of evidence suggests that flavanols increase blood flow and perfusion of the brain. In addition, a number of experimental data also suggest that flavanols may delay the onset of neurodegenerative diseases such as AD (Alzheimer’s Dementia) through a number of different mechanisms…The natural antioxidant flavanols decrease the incidence of vascular atrophy and offer many cardiovascular benefits in addition to counteracting oxidative stress via their antioxidant properties. Further, brain vascular atrophy and the development of MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment) are directly linked.”

Epicatechin-rich Xocai X Power Squares are my favorite Salida brain food.

MXI is not the only organization to recognize the link between antioxidants in cacao and cognitive function. In an article called “The Top 5 Brain Foods” found on the website brainready.com, minimally processed cacao beans are listed as number two. Guess what other super food makes an appearance? The acai berry!

RIF in Monarch?

Monarch online business I am intrigued and inspired by the way some Monarch people respond to financial challenges.

I have seen Monarch friends whose jobs were outsourced waste no time and retrain for new careers even though they were close to retirement age.

I’ve heard of executive level Monarch businessmen and women who, after finding themselves ‘RIFed,’ take much lower paying positions to support their families.

I’ve heard of entrepreneurs who lost their homes build a small business that allowed them to buy another, nicer Monarch home in just a few years.

I’ve even heard of Monarch stay-at-home moms start online businesses that eventually generated an income larger than their husbands’ earnings at the pinnacle of his career.

If you are sinking financially but have not yet found a solution, I invite you to learn about my Monarch business. I sell Xocai Sipping Chocolate and Xocai Powerhouse Cookie online and in the Monarch area.

Starting your own business for the first time can be overwhelming. I remember how apprehensive I was. Fortunately, I received all the tools and support promised to me when I signed up as a new Xocai Sipping Chocolate distributor. That has also been the experience of the Xocai Powerhouse Cookie distributors in my network–because I have provided the same attentive mentoring! (It’s hard to be humble when your Xocai Powerhouse Cookie team is breaking sales records.)

If you are trying to cope with a financial reversal, let me help you turn things around with Xocai Sipping Chocolate.

I hold Xocai Sipping Chocolate meetings at APG online in Salida. If you join my Xocai Sipping Chocolate sales team, I pledge to provide you all the support and business tools you will need to succeed.

Does Chocolate Weight Loss Really Work?

Monarch Xocai Scam Here is some great news for all Monarch chocoholics, Coaldale dieters, busy Sargents students and Poncha Springs 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 Salida Weigh Watchers, Monarch NutriSystem, or Sargents 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 Poncha Springs boomers want to shrink your muffin tops by eating dark chocolate?

The following information about the Poncha Springs Xocai chocolate weight loss plan explains some of the reasons for the outstanding results.

  • Use of a protein shake with cocoa and complex carbohydrates reduces the normal pain in the body usually experienced after vigorous exercise by people in Salida.
  • Increased levels of omega 3 assist in Poncha Springs weight loss.
  • Whey protein isolate is very effective in weight loss.
  • Reporting to an interactive web page or participating in a weekly call increases compliance.
  • Socially interactive Sargents diet programs maximize weight loss.

If you are serious about losing weight or joining a multi-million dollar company, contact me today!

Guilt-Free Chocolate in Salida

Guilt-Free Chocolate in Salida Jeanette L. Brooks of Xocai rejects the conventional wisdom about chocolate. While most people around Poncha Springs have accepted without question the idea that chocolate is the very antithesis of a healthy food, Jeanette decided to leverage the fact that chocolate is healthy, and created the world’s first healthy chocolate company.

Jeanette acknowledges that traditional chocolate candy sold in Monarch and Coaldale convenience stores is bad for us. It contains tropical oils, refined sugar, wax and a host of artificial flavors and colors. In fact, the chocolate we have all grown up with has very little actual chocolate.

Jeanette decided to find a way to create healthy antioxidant chocolate. Jeanette aimed high. She didn’t set out to merely create a health-neutral chocolate; one that, though not harmful, was not exactly beneficial. She was determined to formulate a truly healthy chocolate.

It wasn’t easy. Jeanette and Xocai co-founder Andrew Brooks circled the globe researching cacao growers and chocolate processing operations. They discovered that the cacao bean with the highest concentration of antioxidants is grown in the Republic of Ivory Coast, Africa.

In order to transform the cacao bean into a delicious health-enhancing food, it was necessary to develop a process that did not require harmful additives. This was a significant hurdle. One of the main reasons that traditional chocolate is so bad for us is because harmful ingredients are used to process the super-healthy cacao bean. These ingredients are used as emulsifiers, preservatives, flavorings and cheap fillers.

Jeanette and her team invented a cold-press method that is unique to Xocai weight-loss chocolate. This processing method makes it possible to transform the cacao bean into an edible form that retains all the nutrients without adding the adverse ingredients.

Is your mouth watering for a dark chocolate treat? Call 949 412-1001 to order Xocai in Poncha Springs and the surrounding areas.

Empty calories? Taboo for diabetics? Artery-clogging? With Xocai healthy chocolate, sometimes called ‘New York Times chocolate‘, you can forget everything you ever learned about the world’s favorite food. You can eat Xocai chocolate to your hearts content with zero guilt. And when you lick the creamy chocolate off the tips of your fingers, you can thank Jeanette for that moment of bliss.

Fun Exercise Ideas For Sargents Kids

Fun Exercise Ideas For Sargents Kids

When I was growing up in Sargents, my friends and I never ran out of things to do, and most of our activities provided at least a little bit of exercise. I have fond memories of playing kick-the-can on warm summer nights and swimming at the old Sargents community pool.

Unfortunately, many of today’s Sargents kids spend hours daily in sedentary activities. Exercise benefits our physical, mental, and emotional health. Perhaps you might enjoy participating in some of these with your son or daughter.

Fun exercise suggestions:

  • Fly a kite (It’s even more fun if you sing the song from Mary Poppins while you are doing it.)
  • Wheels: bike, skateboard, longboard, inline skates, rip stick, scooter (don’t forget a helmet!)
  • Rake the yard
  • Hula hoop (The Sargents Wal-Mart carried them last time I checked.)
  • Martial arts
  • Juggling
  • Hacky sack
  • Badminton
  • Weight lifting
  • Hopscotch
  • Jump-roping
  • Tug-of-war

I am concerned about the state of children’s health in Colorado and like to share information about health issues in my blog. If you are looking for a low-fat, high antioxidant chocolate product that tastes like a diet-buster, call me today. I sell Xocai Sipping Chocolate and Xocai Powerhouse Cookie, two tasty treats that help my kids stay healthy.

Capitalism Is Thriving Online In Salida

best Salida home business Have you ever heard this quote: “The person who won’t read is no better off than the person who can’t read?”

I sometimes apply that concept to other things. For example:

“The person who won’t take advantage of free enterprise is no better off than the person who can’t.”

Do you live in a country with a free market? I can show you how to earn a great income wherever you live with a home business. I am a direct marketer that sells Xocai Sipping Chocolate and Xocai Powerhouse Cookie in Salida, Colorado and surrounding communities. To take advantage of the best home business opportunity in Salida, contact me at 949 412-1001.

My Xocai Sipping Chocolate business has been growing as my state has been slowly recovering from the global recession. For the past few years, my family’s income has been better than many of my friends and neighbors in the Poncha Springs area. I feel incredibly blessed.

Some of my entrepreneur friends whose businesses failed during 2008 and 2009 have joined my MLM sales team. They have proven that network marketing businesses like my Xocai Sipping Chocolate team can grow during financial downturns.

What if you don’t live in a country with a free market? You are not out of luck. I can show you how to make money with an easy Xocai Powerhouse Cookie online business.

Capitalism is thriving on the online marketplace. Some call the internet the Great Equalizer. E-commerce blurs or completely erases geographic, political, and cultural boundaries.

If you have reservations about Salida MLMs, I understand. Let’s get together so we can work through any of the false information you may have encountered. Once you fully understand the process and the product, the negative stereotypes won’t hold you back. There is nothing that boosts confidence and quiets cynics like a growing Salida home business that generates residual income.

Sargents Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

Sargents Kids Need A Healthy Plant-Based Diet

One of the best things you can do for your Sargents kids is to help them love plant foods. Kids who are exposed to a wide variety of live foods when they are young are more likely to continue eating them when they are grown.

Why are plant foods so important for Sargents families?

Plant-based foods have vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and protein. Live foods are generally low-fat, low-sodium, and, if unprocessed, have less toxins than processed foods.

Let’s help our Sargents kids eat better than most of us Sargents adults have eaten for the past three generations.

There is more to a plant-based diet than broccoli and carrots. Here are some plant-based meal and snack ideas to inspire you:

  • Legumes: beans, peas, lentils (hummus, black bean burritos, vegetarian chile)
  • Nuts and seeds: pecans, almonds, walnuts, cashews, pumpkin seeds, (sunflower seeds on salads, granola with almonds, trail mix with nuts instead of M&Ms)
  • Whole grains: barley, spelt, millet, rye, quinoa, brown rice (spelt bread, whole wheat pasta, stir-fry with brown rice)
  • Fresh and dried fruit: bananas, berries, citrus, melons (blueberry barley pancakes, fruit plate with yogurt-honey dip, dried apricots in brown bag lunches)
  • Veggies: (mashed sweet potatoes, spinach salad with raspberry vinaigrette, pizza with green pepper, mushrooms and onion instead of pepperoni)

One of my favorite foods is made from the super-nutritious cacao plant. It is high in antioxidants and taste like candy. To try Xocai Sipping Chocolate, contact me today.

Welcome To My Healthy Salida Kids Blog!

Welcome To My Healthy Salida Kids Blog!

Hello Salida parents and kids. Welcome to my ‘Healthy Salida Kids‘ blog. I am passionate about children’s health. I want my children and your children to develop healthy habits while they are young. I hope we can help the youth of today reverse negative health trends and grow up healthier than their parents’ generation.

In our lifetimes we have learned so much about how nutrition, environmental factors, and daily habits influence our health and well-being here in Colorado. Let’s help our Monarch and Coaldale children avoid the chronic conditions that plague the baby boomer generation. That is my goal and I hope this blog will play a part in improving health for Salida children and their counterparts everywhere. My ‘Healthy Salida Kids’ blog will post timely information about a broad range of children’s health-related topics.

  • Diet and Nutrition
  • Exercise and Recreation
  • Healthy Sleep Habits
  • Cancer Risks
  • Mental Health
  • Environmental Factors
  • Alternative and Holistic Healthcare

Healthy habits start at home. I encourage you to examine your own lifestyle and identify areas that you could improve. By setting good examples for our Poncha Springs children we will enjoy better health ourselves and perhaps even add some extra years.

Thanks for reading! I hope you will check back often as I plan to post new articles regularly. Here’s to your Salida family’s healthy future!
