New York City is known for brutally cold winters and Columbia University students have learned to cope.  This year has been unusually difficult because of the increase in the Influenza virus risk in New York.  Columbia University students struggle with keeping up with classes, homework, exams and projects.  One of the most serious risks of living in a Columbia College Dorm on campus is the risk of increased illness due to the student population.  Parents are concerned over how to best protect their children while they are away at college. 

Columbia NYC students are focused on their education and degree goals instead of how many fruits and vegetables they are eating. Parents can protect their student by ensuring they are eating enough antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables. The stronger their immune system, the better their chance of fighting off 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 all over the news, tv and magazines.  What is not as clear is that the type of chocolate you eat makes all the difference.  When you eat just three pieces of XO Power Squares , you are getting 49,464 ORACfn and 1,740 flavonoids.   Even better each power square is only 33 calories each and diabetic friendly.  XO healthy chocolate is one of the highest antioxidant foods you can get.

Send your Columbia Ivy League student healthy chocolate this Valentines Day and help them receive the antioxidants they need to stay healthy. Our variety pack includes a small box of all four solid chocolate varieties of XO Healthy Chocolate sale priced for just $124.95 shipped through Valentines Day.  My son who is a freshman in college enjoys the power square and Xobiotic chocolate. Even though his roommate was seriously ill with the flu, he has remained healthy. I credit the increased antioxidants that he is receiving in XO chocolate.
