Life by Chocolate
For centuries,Â cocoa-rich chocolate has been touted for its great taste and health benefits. TheÂ ancient Aztecs revered the healing powers of the cocoa bean. For many years chocolateÂ was considered divine nourishment, which may explain how this plant acquiredÂ its botanical name â€“ Theobroma cacao.Â In Latin the name for the cacao tree TheobromaÂ cacao means â€œFood of the Gods.â€ ThroughoutÂ history, cocoa offered several health benefits including improved heartÂ function, stimulation of the nervous system, facilitated digestion as well asÂ improved kidney and bowel function.Â In the 19th century, chocolate became a luxury item and its consumption was consideredÂ a sin rather than a remedy. Chocolate was an indulgence that was synonymousÂ with being a rich treat, which in the 20th century then in turn becameÂ known as death by chocolate. Â But overÂ the past decade numerous human scientific studies have examined the benefits ofÂ cocoa and chocolate consumption as part of a heart healthy diet. It has provenÂ what many through history already seemed to have known, there is life byÂ chocolate.
Today, science has revealed that cocoa containsÂ potent phytonutrients and antioxidants, called flavonoids. Flavonoids are antioxidantsÂ found primarily in plant-derived foods. The main flavonoid found in cocoa isÂ flavanol, which contributes to the bitter flavour of cocoa. These abundant andÂ biologically active phenolic plant compounds have marked antioxidant andÂ anti-inflammatory properties.Â They are also thought to be responsible for the health benefits ascribed toÂ chocolate. Research shows that cocoa contains more antioxidants than red wine andÂ green tea.Â The discovery of flavanol-rich cocoa andÂ theÂ multiple healthÂ benefits associated with this antioxidant has changed the perception ofÂ chocolate from sinful to healthful.
Platinum NaturalsÂ has developed a way to deliver nutrients through cocoa. Easy to absorb,Â DECOâ„¢Â is an innovative line of supplements that combine vital nutrition with theÂ health benefits and great taste of natural cocoa. Itâ€™s chocolate for you. Itâ€™sÂ chocolate for life.
For some people, takingÂ a daily supplement can be a challenge. Large pills may be difficult to swallow.Â At Platinum Naturals, we want everyone (regardless of age) to benefit fromÂ daily multivitamin and mineral support. DECOâ„¢Â combines natural, premiumÂ Italian chocolate with our innovative approach to supplements.Â There are no tablets or capsules to swallow,Â which is good news for a lot of people.
For others,Â remembering to take a daily vitamin can be a chore. DECOâ„¢ makes supplementationÂ a pleasurable experience. Our convenient chocolate square tablets can be takenÂ in the morning, after lunch, on an afternoon break or after dinner. Itâ€™s aÂ vitamin tailored for your schedule or lifestyle.
A Better Way To Absorb Your Vitamins.Â We put nature toÂ work for your life.
From the aroma ofÂ the chocolate, the digestion process begins with salivation, it then continuesÂ as the square tablet is chewed and digestive enzymes are activated releasingÂ the nutrients just as nature intended. The potent phytonutrient and rich antioxidantÂ chocolate in DECO is the ideal medium for vitamins and minerals. NaturalÂ chocolate contains high quality fats that promote absorption. When placed inÂ natural fats or oils, active ingredients are absorbed far more readily by cellÂ walls using Platinum Naturalsâ€™ proprietary, award-winning process.Â Platinum Naturals selects the highest quality ingredients and suspends them in oilÂ to ensure each and every nutrient is preserved and delivered to where itâ€™sÂ needed most. Best of all, our superior level of absorption means youâ€™ll feelÂ the difference Platinum Naturalsâ€™ products make.
Not only isÂ natural chocolate a conduit for absorption, but it also enhances the stabilityÂ of the square tablet due to the low water activity and barrier to oxygen.
At PlatinumÂ Naturals, we take pride in sourcing our ingredients based on quality, sustainabilityÂ and fair trade practices. We have made it our mission to help preserve theÂ finest, most flavourful cocoa plants in the world by supporting traditional, sustainableÂ farming methods and fair trade through the Sustainable Cocoa Initiative. Â As demand for cocoa increases, quality cocoaÂ beans are often replaced with cheaper, faster-growing alternatives. TheÂ Sustainable Cocoa Initiative supports the lives of the indigenous farmers,Â their communities and the succession of the worldâ€™s supply of cocoa. This programÂ facilitates native cocoa biodiversity support, income diversity throughÂ multi-cropping and investments to support farming communities that produceÂ premium quality cocoa beans. Furthermore, this initiative also helps preserveÂ the genealogy of traditional cocoa plants.
Due to the traditionalÂ farming methods used by the indigenous farmers to continue the cultivation ofÂ native cocoa beans, our cocoa used is traditionally farmed organically withÂ certification fees invested to support the farmers, not towards certificationÂ logos.
