Cocoa and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Fight CFS with Healthy Dark ChocolateThere’s not a better reward than helping something find their health.  I’d had friends suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and was saddened of how it robbed their families of a wonderful mother and wife.  It’s also known as CFS.

A study published in the Nutrition Journal Sept 2010 used criteria from the Centers for Disease Control to find their subjects.  We already know that chocolate is rich in flavonoids, and has been shown to be of benefit in conditions including cardiovascular disease and cancer. The effect of polyphenol rich chocolate in subjects with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) has not been studied previously.

The double blinded, randomised, clinical pilot compared a dark, polyphenol rich chocolate in comparision with a low polyphenol chocolate.  Each subject consumed one or the other type for 8 weeks, using the Chalder Fatigue Scale of severe fatique (10 out of 11).  There was a two week intercession, followed by 8 weeks intervention with the opposite chocolate.

The subjects’ scoring on the Chalder Fatique Scale improved consistently with the high polyphenol dark chocolate.  The study suggested that dark chocolate may lessen symptoms in patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Mike and I are independent distributors of a special chocolate based product line from MXI, known as Xocai.  The difference between this dark Belgian chocolate and what you can get at the specialty stores as 70% or higher cacao is the process of cold pressing.  This cold pressed chocolate leaves all the nutrients intact.  One small X Power Square contains a over 500 mg of flavenoids, yet only 33 calories.  It is naturally sweetened and diabetic friendly.  We offer a preferred customer program for people suffering from chronic illness such as CFS, diabetes, fibromyalgia.  Click here to have a box of the month shipped to your door this week.  Every three months the company offers one free box during the first year, which is easily $500 in savings.

We wish you the ultimate health and wellness!

Dark Chocolate Reduces Stroke Risk

Was glad to see Dr. Pedersen’s newsletter about this!
Dr. Gordon Pedersen Doctor Pedersen is an internationally renowned scientist, author, corporate officer, product formulator, and technical instructor.

New Study Touts Benefits of Healthy Chocolate

Healthy chocolate received powerful support this month from Sweden’s Journal of Neurology. There were 37,103 men in the study. They consumed dark chocolate daily and it was observed that those men who consumed the most chocolate reduced their risk for stroke by as much as 17%. A 17% reduction in the occurrence of stroke is significant because those who consume a moderate amount of dark chocolate each week may help prevent stroke. When you prevent a stroke you are improving the quality of life and potentially the longevity as well. Since stroke is statistically the number three killer in America it will help improve millions of people’s lives. Those men who ate one third of a cup of dark chocolate daily had a 17% lower risk of stroke than those who didn’t consume any chocolate. This is comparable to previous studies published by Dr. Larson that report a 20% reduction in strokes for patients consuming chocolate daily.
It was noted by the Swedish research doctors that some subjects entered the study with high blood pressure and after ten years of consuming chocolate demonstrated lower blood pressure as well. Flavonoids found in chocolate were identified as having high antioxidant activity, which produced anti-inflammatory effects that helped reduce the high blood pressure.

The Science Behind The Benefits The reason chocolate can reduce blood pressure in the heart and brain is because the antioxidants reduce inflammation of the arteries and in the cells of the cardiovascular system. This means that the entire body benefits from this circulatory improvement. The chocolate enters the circulation through the digestive tract. It then is distributed throughout the entire body through arteries, veins, and capillaries. The antioxidants found in chocolate are so tiny they can be absorbed into a single red blood cell and transported to wherever the arteries take it. Because the brain receives 40% of all the blood volume pumped, it will be the recipient of the majority of antioxidants transported in the blood. In addition the blood vessels are exposed to all these antioxidants and are bathed in flavonoids (antioxidants) that remove free radicals, reverse their damage and restore proper elasticity and function to all the blood vessels that come in contact with the antioxidants.
Cold Processed Dark Chocolate

It should be noted that the United States Department of Agriculture has published a report identifying Dark chocolate as the most powerful naturally occurring antioxidant, which means a person can get more healthy benefits from healthy chocolate than any other healthy plant vegetable or food. This report strongly suggests that the average male should consume one-third cup of dark chocolate daily if they want to improve the function of their arteries, veins and capillaries producing healthy benefits especially in their brains.

It is also important to note that cold processed dark chocolate has the best antioxidant and healthy enzyme counts. This means that cold processed dark chocolate is the healthiest of all the chocolates and should deliver more healthy antioxidants and enzymes. The Swedish research states that those men who ate the most chocolate received the best results in prevention and disease reversal. With this in mind the cold processed dark chocolate will deliver the most powerful antioxidant volumes and would be my first choice for healthy circulatory health.

West Linn Sun Safety

West Linn Sun Safety

Many Oregon families enjoy spending time together outside. Whether it is in the mountains or at the beach, fresh air and sunshine make family time a fun time. West Linn parents should make sure that their children are adequately protected from UV rays when enjoying outside time. Young skin can burn easily and one severe sunburn in childhood increases the chance of developing melanoma later in life two-fold. Oregon babies should not even be exposed to the sun. Cover them with clothing and keep them in the shade. When your West Linn child is six months old, limited exposure to UV rays is okay, but use a healthy dose of sunscreen and common sense. The sunscreen sold at your West Linn supermarket or drugstore should be applied thirty minutes before your kids go outside.

If you are enjoying time at the pool or beach make sure to regularly reapply often.  When my kids swim at the Portland pool they take many breaks in the shade to reapply sunscreen and hydrate. My name is Mike Banning and I am a West Linn-based Xobiotic representative and an advocate for Oregon children’s health. There are many things to worry about as a parent., but I never have to worry about the healthy snacks I give my kids. If you are interested in West Linn children’s health and healthy snacking contact me today!

Energy Drinks Pose Health Risks For Boise Kids

Energy Drinks Pose Health Risks For Boise Kids

Hello Portland! Welcome to my children’s health blog. I am a concerned parent and advocate for improved children’s health in the Portland Metro area.

Today’s topic is energy drinks. Many Portland teens are under the false impression that energy drinks like Rock Star and Red Bull are similar to sports drinks such as Gatorade and Powerade.

Energy drinks are completely different from electrolyte replacement drinks and we need to help our children understand the health risks they pose. Energy drinks contain dangerous chemicals that can harm kid’s growing bodies, especially their teeth.

Energy drinks contain citric acid, fruit juices and extracts, sugar, and a dangerous chemical that gives them their bright color. They can damage tooth enamel with prolonged use.

It is important for us Portland parents to model healthy behavior for our children/young adults. If your kids see you guzzle energy drinks, you may want to think about the example you are setting.

I sell child-friendly nutritional products that are enjoyed by healthy Oregon families. To order healthy energy-boosters, visit http://www.mikebanningchocolate.com.

‘If You Can Run A Oregon Household…’

If You Can Run A Oregon Household

Today’s Portland Metro area home based business article is for Oregon business rookies who need to supplement their income. Whether you are a current or former stay-at-home mom, there are home business opportunities that don’t require formal business training.

As a direct sales mentor, I am familiar with many of the concerns of first-time business owners. I hear things like: ‘I studied fashion design in junior college, I don’t know anything about business,’ or ‘I’m not good at talking to people,’ or ‘My husband worked and I ran the household for thirty years.’

Portland Metro, Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington county domestic engineers make some of the best direct sellers in Oregon. They tend to be ambitious, capable, and service-oriented. They are also multi-tasking pros.

Call me today about earning extra cash with the X Power Squares business opportunity. I am sure you have extensive experience and skills that will ensure your success. Running a household can be a lot harder and more complicated than running an online X Power Squares store.

Call today to get started!

Family Meal Time in West Linn

Family Meal Time in West Linn

West Linn parents want to make sure that their kids spend time doing things that will help them be healthy and successful. Because of this, juggling the family schedule and prioritizing activities are a major part of parenting in the Seattle, Boise, and Southern California areas.

With all this competition for your child’s time, you may be surprised to learn of the advantages West Linn kids receive when families make time to eat dinner together.

Studies have shown that kids who have frequent family dinners benefit in the following ways:

Improved grades
Eating healthier meals
Less likely to try cigarettes, alcohol, and marijuana
Increase in family communication
Less likely to become overweight or obese

If you want to help establish a more regular dinner time for your family, here are some tips for Portland families. Start by setting a small goal, like sitting down for dinner twice a week, and then add days on after that. Next, involve the kids by letting them help plan and prepare the meals and set the table. Lastly, always make mealtime a technology-free zone: no TV or phones allowed!

And remember, even if you’re in a rush and have to pick up dinner at a local Seattle, Boise, or Southern California restaurant, take the time to sit down together to eat. Your family will still enjoy many of these benefits.

My name is Mike Banning and I want to help West Linn families to raise healthy, happy kids. I am the owner of a Portland area home business that sells X Power Squares.
