University of Central Florida Students are at risk of the influenza virus due to the flu outbreak throughout the country.  A mutated virus appears to have arrived in Florida from New York.  Parents of UCF College Students who live on Campus are concerned about the health risks for their children. This has been an unusually severe year for the flu because of the increase in the Influenza virus risk across the country. 

UCF students work diligently to keep up with classes, homework, exams and projects. An extensive flu illness that can last up to two weeks could wreck havoc on a University of Central Florida students schedule and ability to keep up with rigorous classes.  A consideration of living in the dorm at UCF is the risk of serious illness on campus. Parents are wondering how they can protect their children from illness while they are  away at college.

UCF students along with college students across the country are not focused on how many fruits and vegetables they are eating. We as parents can protect our children by ensuring they are eating enough antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables. The stronger their immune system, the better their chance of fighting off illness including colds and flu. An easy way to help your busy student is to provide them with high antioxidant cold pressed chocolate.

The health benefits of dark chocolate have been well documented in prestigious medical journals.  Choosing to eat the cold pressed XO healthy chocolate over the candy chocolate found in stores can be significant.  Increasing antioxidants can help strengthen the immune system.  XO healthy chocolate is one of the highest antioxidant foods available anywhere.
