Dear Difference Maker,
I was at Staples yesterday, waiting my turn when I looked to my left and saw the 5-hour drink selling for 1- $3.49 a bottle! I was shocked…
Then out of the corner of my eye I saw the Computer Fix It Guy over at his counter knocking back a shot of the 5 hour energy drink.
And I thought to myself, “Self, who would want to ever drink that stuff when they could be drinking yummy creamy hot chocolate …. and even be able to drink it for free if you wanted to do a little leg work to share it with 3 of your friends.”
And my Self answered, “I know, crazy eh?!”
Yeah, our FocusFusion Cocoa IS this good!!
Cocoa Rich in Health Benefits
March 23, 2011 — Cocoa, used throughout history as a folk medicine, may actually have significant health benefits, according to a new study by Harvard researchers.
Their analysis of 21 studies with 2,575 participants shows that cocoa consumption is associated with decreased blood pressure, improved blood vessel health, and improvement in cholesterol levels, among other benefits.
Eric L. Ding, PhD, of Harvard Medical School says the apparent health benefits come from polyphenolic flavonoids in cocoa that have the potential to prevent heart disease.
Flavonoids are antioxidants that are commonly found in fruits, vegetables, tea, wine, and coffee.
Cocoa Flavonoids Good for Cholesterol
In addition to decreasing blood pressure and improving blood vessel health, consumption of flavonoid-rich cocoa decreased “bad” LDL cholesterol among people under age 50, and increased good HDL cholesterol, the analysis showed.
Flavonoid-rich cocoa consumption also was linked to reductions in risk factors for diabetes — a major risk factor itself for cardiovascular disease.
Also, resistance to the hormone insulin, which helps regulate blood sugar, favorably dropped among people who consumed flavonoid-rich cocoa, compared to people in comparison groups.
Further, consumption of flavonoid-rich cocoa did not change triglyceride levels of study participants or make them obese. Triglycerides are a type of blood fat that have been linked to coronary artery disease when levels are elevated above normal.
