The xocai company will try to sell you overpriced chocolate products. They are a multi level marketing scheme. The bottom levels will get scammed, and make no money. The top levels will use the bottom levels, and tell them they might make money.
Search websites about pyramid scams for more info.

MXI is a wonderful company, they are up front and very supportive. Joe, if you think about all companies, do they not all have levels?, does the cleaner earn the same as the CEO? of course not, Im not saying they arent overpaid, some of them, but if it were not for the manufacture, wholesale, retail, and customer where would any business be? We all have jobs because of the structure. I can tell you being a business owner for the past 30 years, it is not easy, sometimes its good to work for someone else and get paid at the end of the week. cheers, Debbie Cleal.

Hello out there to all that is. Joe not that I totally disagree with you. In a true pyramid scheme there is not product or service. This company has found a way to make something that no one else has come up with. Most people do not know that the products that we find on our shelves are paid to be placed at on on a certain spot in the store.
As for the multi level scheme what about our current retirement system. They keep telling us that there will be no money when the time comes for most of the people that are working are ready to leave the working world. I work at a great job. It pays well but unless I work my way to the top I will never make more then the top guy. I can but I will have to work and learn and wait my time and hope no one else comes along. I will say after almost a year we are making some money. No I am not making a million dollars but after 20 years at a fire department I also am not at the million dollar mark yet!
This is a wellness product and it got rid of heart burn that for 18 years I have suffered with it and doctors have told me not much help but with drugs. Well I found one way and I am sure there are others yet unknown to me at this time. For me I also found that some people it helps with their sugar levels(diabetes).
So as with any business or idea we all must look into it and understand how it truly works and are we prepared to work if the value is there.
Thanks for your time

Please! It's chocolate! Incredibly overpriced (and not very tasty) chocolate.

Hi CIPHIGuy, are you implying you are part of the Canadian Institute of Public Health Inspectors? If so, have you inspected this chocolate?

I am going to assume that instead of making a blanet statement solely designed to disparage the product, you have some real data regarding other chocolate products with similar certified flavanoid levels and ORAC scores?

I will disagree with you that it is not tasty as I and many I know find the products delicious. However, I have noticed that those with very poor diets high in processed sugar find the Xocai supplement not that tasty at first. It seems many of them initially expect it to taste like a Cadbury's milk chocolate bar.

I would go so far as to say that comparing the Xocai supplement whose daily serving provides over a thousand milligrams of flavanoids (certified by Brunswick Labs) to any candy chocolate found in your local store is like talking smack about broccoli because it doesn't taste like licorice.

Of course, I have also seen extreme health conscious types say the product tastes too much like a Cadbury's milk chocolate bar - which shows you can never please everyone.

I absolutely love this healthy chocolate and can't think of being without it! My reply to CIPHIGuy is to just continue eating the unhealthy stuff. If you want to look at the facts simply google 'dark chocolate' it's all there. The difference with this is you don't get all the unhealthy stuff that normally accompanies dark chocolate. The company markets a product that nobody else has. When you have a product that 9 out of 10 people already love then I'd say you're in the right place at the right time!

I AGREE! Google 'dark chocolate' and you'll be amazed at the clinical studies that support the health benefits. Xocai's product is undeniably decadent and delicious, if you are a big fan of DARK chocolate. I have only had one person tell me they did not like it. Many say that it is expensive. However, it is priced directly between the very bad for you, cheap chocolate (i.e, candy bars) and the very expensive, very bad for you chocolate (i.e. Godiva).

If CIPHPguy would do his homework before he posts something that will embarrass him, he will realize a pyramid scheme is when money is passed from one person to another without any products. When this same type of business model exsists but with a product or service, it's called a legitimate business! Look at Hershey's Chocolate for instance...they produce the product, sell it off to 50 major wholesalers, who sell it off to 200 different distributors, who sell if off to 15000 retail stores. Gee, doesn't that sound like a pyramid CIPHIGuy?

Once you understand what a pyramid is, you understand that this isnt it. it's just a different way of selling and spreading the word. Lots of companies do this...nothing new. And there are far too many clinical studies backing Xocai not to at least give it a try....just wait until Hershey's and other chocolate companies start selling chocolate with health benefits...and you'll say, I remember when....

I have tried the Xocai chocolate and after a week I felt the difference and now I am a proud Xocai consumer. If you never tried it you should.
Flavonoids are powerful antioxidant compounds that protect the body from free radical damage, which comes from smoking, eating processed foods and even breathing oxygen. Health benefits can be found in consuming 900 flavonoids daily, and all Xocai products do that.
ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity or the ability to wipe out the free radicals mentioned above. The higher the ORAC the more health benefits.

I have been eating Xocai chocolate regularly, since October 2008. It is now May, 2009, and I have since developed colon cancer and two DVTs. I am in tremendous pain.

ORAC and flavanoid and "health benefits" are just words used to hypnotize the believers. The chocolate is a placebo.

My dad's blood pressure and cholesterol got higher after eating the xocai nuggets...it's no wonder...the saturated fat is BAD no matter what they say...saturated is saturated. It's all a hype folks. If money wasn't involved, the motivation to tell you how "wonderful" it is wouldn't be here...trust me...been there done that!

To the private person whose "dad" had problems with Xocai:
Dear Troll,
Dr. Perricone disagrees with you: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-nicholas-per...
As does Dr. Hollenberg: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/03/...
So do researchers at UC Davis: http://globalnation.inquirer.net/cebudailynew...
As do researchers at a university in Italy: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18716168...
If your "dad" is having problems with his blood pressure, you may want to take a more holistic view of his diet. Assuming your story has even an ounce of honesty, I guarantee you that your "dad's" diet is so bad that no amount of any supplement will help.

I really enjoyed the taste of the nuggets and but my cholesterol went up as well. I have a very healthy diet and included 4 nuggets a day. It went from 199 to 218 and the only difference in my diet was that I was eating the "healthy chocolate" in today's economy, who can afford to pay for something so expensive just to get worse health!
