New York, NY, January 21, 2012 — InVite® Health, a leading nutraceutical firm headquartered in New York City, today announced the introduction of its new and improved Cocoa TxTM product. Many persons, especially seniors, are interested in preserving the quality of their lives, aging well and protecting vital organs and their vascular systems from disease. The product incorporates a functional food -natural cocoa powder- that is rich in magnesium, flavanols, theobromine and dietary fiber. These ingredients are known to have antioxidant benefits which can support a healthy inflammatory response and are beneficial in slowing the rate of cellular aging.
Long enjoyed as a hot beverage, cocoa is additionally a nutritional powerhouse supplying strong polyphenols antioxidants known as flavan-3-oils that are exceptionally valuable for shielding the circulatory system and heart and for improving the look and health of the skin when consumed habitually. Cocoa also has value for good mental health. Invite Health’s Cocoa TxTM supplies 100mg of Cocoa providing 40mg polyphenols per ml (one dropper) in a chocolate base.
“A key concern among our aging population is the need to preserve their independence by aging as well as possible,” comments Dr. Millie Lytle, a Nutritional Director at InVite® Health, Inc. She adds. “The antioxidant benefits of Cocoa TxTM respond to that need. The Product Development Department under the supervision of Scientific Director Jerry Hickey has reformulated our popular Cocoa TxTM product, thereby enabling easier absorption of nutrients known to support our customers’ heart and circulatory systems.” Lytle concludes.
The high percentage of cacao in cocoa equates to a higher amount of flavonals – known antioxidants – which are very beneficial to blood vessels. So why buy a supplement and not just drink more hot cocoa? The processing of cocoa for consumption as a beverage and the added sugar to enhance its taste remove most of the associated nutritional values. Invite Health’s Cocoa TxTM processing and delivery systems however, ensure that the nutrients are preserved for maximum absorption and health benefit.
