antioxidantsFor those suffering with Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s disease, you know all to well how difficult it is dealing with this chronic condition.  Maintaining a well balanced diet is critical in dealing with the chronic nature of this disease.  Many physicians recommend a diet diary so that you can keep track of foods that are causing a problem for you.

Annette Tuell has suffered with Crohn’s Disease since she was 12 years old.  In and out of hospitals at such a young age, she knows exactly how Crohn’s sufferers feel.  I recently read a testimonial about how her health has benefited from XO Healthy Chocolate and the XO Wellness Meal Replacement Shake.  Read her story here.  It caught my attention because I also noticed an impact to my health when I started adding the XO  Wellness shake to my diet plan.

Just one XO wellness shake has the antioxidant value of 56,000 ORACfn.  That is the scoring system that is used to determine the value of the antioxidant value of fruits and vegetables.  The XO Shake is made from cold pressed raw cacao.  Cacao is the highest antioxidant I am aware of, even higher than Acai berry which is the second highest.

I do not know what a person with Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis has to deal with but I do understand what it is like to live with a chronic illness.  I suffer with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.  I used to get sick all the time and avoided people like the plague because I was so afraid I would get sick.  What I noticed was that when I increased the amount of antioxidants that I eat, it helped to strengthen my immune system.

If you are looking for a way to enjoy a healthy and yummy meal, consider the XO Wellness Replacement Shake.  It has 21 grams of protein, is full of antioxidants, is gluten free and a great source of fiber.  According to Annette Tuell, ” I drank these not because I needed to lose weight, but because it is so easy for your body to digest. Upon drinking the shakes, I can honestly say I have not felt better.  They allow me to feel normal, in fact, better than normal with the benefits it provides”.  Now this is the value of good nutrition!
