Chocolate that is good for your teeth, health, and metabolism?
That's impossible. Or is it? Our delicious, rich chocolate bar has zero dairy, zero sugar, and three active food based supplements that may actually assist with improving your metabolism: Green Coffee Extract, Chromium Polynicotinate and Capsaicin. While we understand that nothing is a substitute for healthy living and vigorous exercise, these active ingredients can be a wind at your back, helping to contribute to a healthy weight management lifestyle. But one thing we are sure of, every time you eat a decadent ChocoFree Metabolate bar to satisfy your sweet tooth, you are saving yourself from the calories, fats, sugars and dairy that make normal chocolate the bane of the dieter’s success. Furthermore, xylitol has been linked to healthy teeth, (unlike sugar) so next time someone tells you that all that chocolate will rot your teeth, let them know you are free of those concerns with Metabolate!
A survey on US men and women show that Chocolate is the No. 1 most craved food. As such, it is one of the most difficult things for those interested in weight loss to cut out of their diet. Besides the famous taste, chocolate contains several qualities and compounds that make it so irresistible to many.
For one, chocolate is a relatively ideal mix of sweet and fat to turn on many of the food-triggered nerve chemicals in the brain. The sweet taste releases endorphins, helping to provide an immediate euphoric rush. The healthy fat in chocolate from the cocoa butter interacts with the nerve chemical called galanin, helping to satisfy our cravings for fat. However, of the 300 naturally intrinsic chemicals in chocolate that may affect the nervous system, there are four in particular that research indicates may be worth highlighting:
A natural cannabinoid that mimics certain effects of marijuana and boosts the pleasure you get when you eat chocolate. While the amount of anandamide is relatively minor, chocolate also contains two chemicals that help prevent the breakdown of anandamide by the body, allowing a small amount to have a more impactful effect.
Chocolate contains L-Tryptophan, the precursor to Serotonin, the neurotransmitter responsible for positive mood.
A mild stimulant similar to caffeine, theobromine can help the body induce mental and physical relaxation as well increase available energy stores.
This "chocolate amphetamine" contributes to changes in blood pressure and blood-sugar levels leading to feelings of excitement and alertness. It works like other natural amphetamines to increase mood and decrease depression, but it does not result in the same tolerance or addiction. Phenylethylamine is also called the "love drug" because it causes your pulse rate to quicken, resulting in a similar feeling to when someone is in love. (source)
With all of these benefits listed above, there is strong justification as to why chocolate is such a highly coveted food. The problem with traditional chocolate is that it simply isn’t very good for you, particularly if you are trying to lose weight. Dairy and granular sugar are two of the biggest contributing culprits leading to excess body fat, according to nutrition experts like Mike Dolce.
Metabolate eliminates the concerns regarding dairy and sugar, allowing for the full taste and neurochemical chocolate experience without the negative weight management impact. Substituting Metabolate for common chocolate in your diet can help satisfy the cravings while offering a favorable weight loss profile.
In addition to nutritional advantages of substituting Metabolate for other chocolate, Metabolate also contains three natural supplements which can help contribute to overall weight management -- Green Coffee Extract, Capsaicin, and Chromium. Lastly, the utilization of xylitol instead of sugar provides benefits to the body for promoting healthy teeth.
Green Coffee Extract
In a recent peer reviewed clinical study, 16 overweight individuals with a median age of 33 were supplemented with 700mg, 1050mg, or 0mg (placebo) of green coffee per day for a total of 22 weeks. As a crossover study, each participant cycled through all three dosing schedules, effectively acting as their own placebo.
All of the participants were monitored for their overall diet (calories, food eaten, etc.) and exercise over the study period. Their calories, carbohydrates, fats, and protein intake did not change during the study, nor did their exercise regimen change.
Participants lost an average of 17 pounds during the 22 weeks of the study. It included an average of a 10.5 percent decrease in overall body weight and a 16 percent decrease in body fat. While the data set was small and many researchers are calling for further clinical evaluation, the evidence in favor of Green Coffee Extract’s ability to assist the body with weight management is very encouraging.
The effects of green coffee beans are likely due to a substance called chlorogenic acid that is present in unroasted coffee beans. Chlorogenic acid starts to break down when coffee beans are roasted (usually at a temperature of 464-482 degrees Fahrenheit). Roasting gives coffee beans their distinctive color, aroma, and flavor. Green coffee beans, in contrast, have little aroma and a slightly bitter taste. Metabolate has 235mg of Green Coffee Extract per piece.
Dietary chromium can reduce the amount of circulating glucose and suppress the body’s insulin response following sugar intake. The rapid absorption of simple carbohydrates can be harmful and even a slight reduction in circulating glucose levels can have significant health benefits.
Capsaicin can help promote weight loss by counteracting the unfavorable effects of negative energy balance. A study examining the 24 hour effects of capsaicin showed an increase in fat oxidation in a reduced-calorie diet.
This naturally occurring sugar alcohol contains 33% few calories than regular sugar and is safe for long-term human consumption. Research indicates that xylitol may be beneficial in lowering the concentration of circulating lipids preventing the development of obesity.
