Reno, NV (PressExposure) October 05, 2009 -- Jeanette Brooks (http://www.mxicorp.com/founders/jbrooks.html), Founder and President of MXI Corp, and her family of entrepreneurs have turned their passion for chocolate into chocolate dreams with their development of Xocai, the healthy dark chocolate. Jeanetteâs chocolate dreams are experienced in two waysâfirst by health conscious chocolate lovers who want their chocolate no matter what and are excited with the prospects of improving their health while they indulge, and secondly, through MXI Corp, the network marketing company, that offers a business opportunity to those who want to market the healthy dark chocolate.
About 18 years ago, Jeanette was diagnosed with diabetes which motivated her search for ways to lower her weight and improve her health without sacrificing taste in the products she loves. This led the family which includes her husband, Martin Brooks and her son, Andrew Brooks (http://www.mxicorp.com/founders/abrooks.html), into their first healthy, low-carbohydrates venture with a company called Pure De-lite. At that time, Dr. Robert Atkinsâ low-carbohydrate diet was all the rage. Jeanette saw the need for a good tasting low-carb chocolate bar.
The Brooks family did their research, from the highest-antioxidant cacao bean grown in the Ivory Coast to the best chocolate manufacturer in Belgium. Their research culminated in bringing dark chocolate to the retail market, as Pure De-lite, at a time when it was little known. With their product in hand, Jeanette put her marketing savvy to work, and in a short time, they had built their low-carb business to $300 million in retail sales, starting from Jeanetteâs kitchen table. Many retailers sold their low-carb chocolate bars, including Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, GNC, and CVS to name a few.
Then Dr. Atkins passed away and the low-carb rage changed. But Americaâs desire for healthy dark chocolate was growing. According to recent statistics nine out of ten people love chocolate and crave it every day. The average American eats 12 pounds of chocolate every year. Additionally, many doctors are also promoting the health benefits of chocolate.
Again, seeing the continuing need, the Brooks family conducted further research into healthy dark chocolate products and created XoÃ§ai, the healthy dark chocolate product line which they chose to distribute through network marketing.
âWe had a dream of taking healthy chocolate worldwide and the best way to do that was through people.â said Jeanette Brooks, (http://www.mxicorp.com/founders/jbrooks.html), Founder and President of MXI Corp. âChocolate lovers just replace the bad chocolate with the good chocolate.â
Chocolate candy is heated with sugar, dairy, fat and wax added which do not contribute to good health. The XoÃ§ai dark chocolate is combined with the aÃ§aÃ berry and blueberry and contains a high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), a method of measuring antioxidants in fruits and vegetables. The higher the ORAC value, the more capable the food is to neutralize free radicals. Additionally, XoÃ§ai chocolate is uniquely cold-pressed which retains the high antioxidant properties naturally found in cacao.
The XoÃ§ai (http://www.mxicorp.com/products) healthy chocolate line also includes a chocolate drink, a chocolate with omega oils, a chocolate with probiotics, a chocolate cookie and a chocolate protein bar.
