Winters at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York are unseasonably cold this February.  Combined with the higher than normal Influenza outbreak, it is no wonder that Cornell University Student Parents are concerned about the well being of their children.  Honored to be at Ivy League Cornell, most students are focused on their college classes, homework, exams and student life.  They have worked hard to attain the right to be a student at Cornell and are focused on their degree program. 

Most Cornell students are not making a priority of their diet which is why parents are concerned.  A simple solution to this potential health crisis is to increase antioxidants to strengthen the immune system and lower the risk of getting a cold or flu virus.  

You can easily protect your Cornell Student by ensuring they are eating enough antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables. The stronger their immune system, the better their chance of fighting off the flu virus. One of the easiest ways to protect your student is to give them high antioxidant cold pressed chocolate.

The majority of us are familiar with the health benefits associated with dark chocolate.  By choosing your chocolate carefully, you can maximize the health benefits as all dark chocolate is not the same.  It is important to buy cold pressed chocolate without waxes, fillers and processed sugar like traditional candy chocolate.  Eating just three pieces of XO Xobiotic Squares gives you a TOTAL ORACfn score of 84,777 and 1,904 flavonoids. XO chocolate products are high antioxidant superfoods that can provide your child with the antioxidant benefits they need.  XO even carries a Xe Energy drink for those students who prefer not to eat chocolate.   Help your Cornell student succeed by allowing them to focus on studies, homework, exams and college life, instead of suffering with a severe version of the flu virus.  Give your child the antioxidants they need to strengthen their immune system and stay focused on their degree program.
