Chocolate helps our health in many ways – especially Xocai’s delicious blends!
“Coffee and chocolate have always been under the microscope but for different reasons. Dark chocolate is often hailed for its powerful antioxidant properties while coffee is full of that get up and go juice also known as caffeine - a widely researched chemical in well-being. But researches in separate studies are taking a closer look at potential benefits coming from the kitchen cabinet ingredients. Researchers at Quebec’s Laval University’s Institute of Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods are looking into chocolate and its relationship with UV light. Right now, researchers are gathering fair-skinned female volunteers to eat three squares of chocolate, every day, for 12 weeks. The idea behind it is that polyphenols, a chemical found in chocolate, has been known to increase blood flow to the skin which can help protect against damaging UV light. The women will be exposed to UV light and scientist will monitor their damage. If polyphenols are indeed increased, the group of women that have been eating chocolate should have a smaller degree of UV damage compared to the control group.”

“While the study in Quebec is still looking for volunteers, researchers at Rutgers University have just finished up their own study that shows that caffeine is also good at fighting UV damage. The study, found in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, shows that caffeine guards against certain skin cancers at the molecular level, by inhibiting a protein enzyme in the skin known as ATR. It namely focused on ATR, a protein enzyme that’s inhibited by caffeine. The research is building on an older study where mice drank caffeinated water. The caffeinated mice that were exposed to UVB radiation were able to kill off a greater percentage of their badly-damaged cells, and reduce the risk of cells developing cancer. In the new study, researchers genetically modified one group of mice to reduce the protein enzyme ATR, and then exposed them and a group of unmodified mice to ultraviolet light. The result was genetically-
I continue to be amazed at the power of Chocolate – science continues support our Mxi Corp (Xocai) findings!
“Allan Conney of the department of chemical biology at Rutgers University notes “All of this suggests the possibility that caffeine, possibly [applied to the skin], would have an inhibitory effect on sunlight-induced skin cancer. In addition to the effects on the ATR pathway, caffeine also has sun screening properties.”
