Most people in SW Florida understand the importance of Omega-3 fatty acids, but many are not aware of the need for a balance of Omega-3s and Omega-6s. Unlike Omega-3, there are a multitude of Omega-6 sources. In fact, most cookies, candy, snacks and crackers contain soybean oil which is very rich in Omega-6.
“Most North Americans and Europeans now get far too much of the Omega-6s and not enough of the Omega-3s. This dietary imbalance may explain the rise of such diseases as asthma, coronary heart disease, many forms of cancer, autoimmunity and neurodegenerative diseases, all of which are believed to stem from inflammation in the body.”
—Dr. Andrew Weil
The XO Omega Squares contain healthy chocolate and Omega-3s; a winning combo for health and vitality. They have a minimum of 200mg of DHA and EPA per three 11 gram squares. The XO Omega Squares are an excellent source of Omega-3 and promote the necessary balance of essential fatty acids through the Acai Berries, flaxseed and a patented, plant-based, encapsulated Omega-3.
If you usually eat a traditional dark chocolate bar every day and replace it with XO Omega Squares, you will benefit in three ways:
- You will avoid the empty calories, refined sugar and saturated fats found in ordinary chocolate candy;
- You will get a significant amount of Omega-3, and;
- You will help correct the Omega-3/Omega-6 imbalance by tipping the scales toward the Omega-3s.
If you have never tried Omega Squares antioxidant chocolate, don’t be fooled by the fact that they are nutritious. First-time XO reviews are universally positive from all my Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte & Deep Creek friends. In fact, one of the best MLM secrets is the fact that XO Omega Squares (sometimes called New York Times Chocolate) do not taste like traditional health supplements. A healthy life is not based on denial, but choosing wisely.
