Holiday Hostess Giveaway - Intentional Chocolate CLOSED

We’re deep into the throws of the holiday season - holiday parties, gift shopping, much fanfare and celebration, but come January, we will be even deeper into winter.  Those dark months are always a challenge - but we’ve got some tricks up our sleeve to help us through.  Chocolate, a rich source of tryptophan, is known to increase levels of serotonin, those little guys in your brain that make you happy. 

Not only is it a great source of antioxidants, can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, but chocolate is insanely delicious.  Now that we’ve covered the health benefits, we’re here to tell you about Intentional Chocolate, a company makes 100% Hawaiian Vintage Organic chocolate, and gives it even more oomph by infusing it with the spiritual energy of experienced meditators personally trained with the Dalai Lama.  An academic study found Intentional Chocolate increased vigor, energy by 67%, which is exactly what we will need, come January. 

Based on a human clinical trial, conducted under double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled conditions, we found that people who ate ½ oz of  the intentionally treated chocolate twice daily for three days had a significant improvement in mood, as compared to people eating the same, but non-treated chocolate.

Not only will this chocolate make you feel better in every way, it really is some of the best stuff we’ve ever tasted.  Forget about that sad Hersey’s Bar, this is the real deal.  AND the benefits include, lowered stress, increased energy, serenity, focus, and improved general well being, just by eating chocolate every day? Amazing!

  2. i could always use some chocolate that might help me be more present!  when eating a piece, enjoy that piece and savor that moment, as you should try to savor all moments, even trying times and sad hours.

  5. I LOVE chocolate, especially dark chocolate.  And having it blessed by monks?  I consider that an added bonus.  We welcome all blessing, from any source.

  9. Because dark chocolate blessed by Tibetan monks would have been a more pleasant and delicious way to go rather than my demise in a pool of watered down milk chocolate.
