Here is a list of the healthy chocolate products mentioned by the New York Times in their article about ‘the Amway of Chocolate’.
Xoçai™ Nuggets, are an extremely high cocoa content chocolate combining the exotic flavors of dark chocolate with Açai and Blueberries. Each 12-gram Xoçai™ Nugget is made with rich, dark, Belgian Chocolate. There are 100 Nuggets per case. They are suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans. The Xoçai™ Nuggets are considered a “Clean Product”: No Artificial Colors, No Artificial Flavors, No Preservatives, and No Sucralose.
There have been numerous studies, including Cardiovascular Studies, on the health benefits of Dark Chocolate. Often these studies have included the Dove® Dark Chocolate Bar. MXI Corp believes in the future that these types of studies will be done with the Xoçai™ Nuggets once they see the Nugget’s Nutritional and ORAC Profile.
Each 12-gram piece of Xoçai™ Nuggets has an ORAC Value or Antioxidant Content of 3,120, and the USDA recommends at least 3,000 to 5,000 per day. Furthermore, the Xoçai™ Nuggets are the only Chocolate Bar, dark or milk, in the marketplace that has printed on the packaging the ORAC Value or Antioxidant Content of the product. We’re truly excited that we have the Ultimate Antioxidant Treat with a balanced nutritional profile.
What are the XoBiotic Squares™?
There are many natural functional foods in virtually every food group. As we all know, chocolate itself is a functional food if it contains sufficient antioxidants and flavonoids. However, it is now possible for manufacturers to create functional foods by fortifying and enhancing their products to give them added health benefits never before possible. A new growing segment of functional food is called “probiotics.”
Probiotic means “fit for life,” or “pro life.” Probiotics are living microorganisms which when administered effectively in adequate amounts confer health benefits. The adult intestinal tract is home to approximately 100 trillion microorganisms. More than 400 different bacterial species have already been identified in the intestinal tract.
First, in order to be effective Probiotics must contain bacteria which are resistant to stomach acids and bile salts. Secondly, the bacteria must have the capacity to compete successfully with the indigenous intestinal bacteria. So, either the bacteria must be protected by the use of encapsulation techniques, or new types of foods must be developed which offer increased protection for the bacteria. The key to the effectiveness of probiotic treatment is for the bacteria to be able to pass through the stomach and the small intestines reaching the large intestines with sufficient strength to colonize and flourish.
SHIME stands for “The Simulator of the Human Intestinal Microbial Ecosystem.” This in vitro system was created to simulate the activities and conditions found in the stomach, small intestines, and large intestines. This enables scientists to monitor the quantity of bacteria that survive the journey to the large intestines. And, it also enables them to monitor the development of the bacterial colonies in the large intestines.
According to the American College of Gastroenterology, 95 million Americans suffer from digestive problems. Some 60 million have heartburn, 50 million have irritable bowel syndrome, and 20 million suffer from stomach ulcers.
Many, many new probiotic products have been launched in North America and Europe. But, we have a distinct advantage. Chocolate appears to be the ideal delivery system for probiotics. Chocolate has been shown to be far superior to milk as a delivery system for Probiotics.
The Xoçai™ XoBiotic™ chocolate will be in the form of an 11-gram square and will deliver 1 billion microorganisms of two types— Lactobacillus Helveticus R0052 and Bifido Bacterium Longum R0175. These probiotics have been selected for our probiotic chocolate because of their stability in chocolate and their guaranteed shelf life equal to the shelf life of the chocolate itself, if properly stored as recommended for all Xoçai™ products (40*F – 75*F). By marrying the health benefits of dark chocolate with those of these two probiotic cultures, which have a positive influence on immune and gut health, we gain new opportunities with health-conscious consumers. Presently there are no approved health claims on probiotics in the US, until now!
The Xoçai™ X Power Squares use cacao that is blanched, unfermented, sun-dried, non-roasted and cold-pressed, which means it boasts eight times the levels of epicatechins and catechins, and four times the levels of procyandins than cacao produced with standard processing. X Power Squares are loaded with antioxidants and have an unparalleled ORAC Value of 3,582 per 6g Square. The Xoçai™ X Power Squares are the most powerful, health-promoting, decadent chocolate ever produced.
Essence of Health, the Xoçai™ Omega Squares™
The North American diet is almost completely void of the essential fatty acid Omega-3. Researchers believe that at least 60% of North Americans are presently deficient in Omega-3 fatty acids and that children are obtaining almost no Omega-3. In fact, the deficiency of Omega-3 in the North American diet has now been linked to an extensive list of health-related problems sited in over 2,000 scientific studies.
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to health.
They are considered essential fatty acids, which means that they are essential to human health but cannot be manufactured by the body.
The National Institutes of Health and International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids (ISSFAL) recommends that individuals consume at least 220mg daily of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), the most important Omega-3 fatty acids, and that pregnant and nursing women consume at least 300mg daily. For comparison purposes, there is 100mg of DHA per 1/4 cup of canned tuna.
The Xoçai™ Omega Squares™ have a minimum of 200mg of DHA and EPA per three 11 gram squares. The Xoçai™ Omega Squares™ are an excellent source of Omega-3 and promotes the necessary balance of essential fatty acids though the Açaí Berry, flaxseed and a patented, plant-based, encapsulated Omega-3.
Reverse the Imbalance!
It is important to maintain an appropriate balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 in your diet as these two substances work together to promote better health. A healthy diet should consist of roughly two times more Omega-6 fatty acids than Omega-3 fatty acids (2:1).
Many researchers suggested that the present excessive levels of Omega-6 fatty acids, relative to Omega-3 fatty acids (10:1), in the North American diet has created a significant imbalance and is a major factor in the rising rate of diseases in the United States. Omega-9 fatty acids are not classified as essential fatty acids, because they can be created by the human body from unsaturated fat.
The Xoçai™ Omega Squares™ has been developed to provide your body the essential fatty acids for preventative and better health during every stage of your life!

Xoçai™ Activ, the Ultimate Active-Lifestyle Antioxidant Beverage!
MXI Corp recognizes the importance of providing multiple products focusing on the benefits of unprocessed cacao and açai berries. As we are all aware, there is not a single product that can please everyone. MXI Corp would now like to share with the Network some exciting information about the new Xoçai™ Activ™.
Xoçai™ Activ™ combines the wonderful flavors of unprocessed cacao, açaí berries, blueberries and concord grapes, leaving you with a lasting, “dark-chocolate” taste. The antioxidant content or the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) Value of Xoçai™ Activ™ is similar to the present Xoçai™ Beverage and Nuggets. However, the approach of Xoçai™ Activ™ is slightly different clearly focusing on the “All-Natural” consumer. Activ™ has been formulated with no added colors, no artificial flavors, and no preservatives! Xoçai™ Activ™ is ideal for the “PURIST,” who wants nothing but the raw, high-antioxidant ingredients or for the “ENERGETIC,” who wants nothing holding them back in life!
Xoçai Activ™ should be stored in a cool, dry place and can be stored for up to one year before “activating.” To activate, just add warm purified (bottled, not boiled) water. The product is much lighter, so it will be easier to take wherever you go. It is ideal for the “active lifestyle!”
The Xoçai™ Protein Bar combines the antioxidant benefits of the finest, all-natural, unprocessed cocoa powder, the açaí berry, and other high-antioxidant berries to deliver an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) Value of 4,066* per bar. The Xoçai™ Protein Bar has 10 grams of soy protein, the equivalent to 2 large eggs, and it is sweetened with Isomaltulose, a low-glycemic sweetener. Each case of Xoçai™ Protein Bars contains 4 display boxes each containing 10 Protein Bars.
