is that while your family is enjoying a great tasting hot cocoa they are building impenetrable immune systems.

EnerHealthBotanicals is re-releasing its organic hot cocoa mix called Cocoa Mojo with the addition of organic palm sugar. Cocoa Mojo was the first organic hot cocoa mix to add Cordyceps and Ganoderma herbs for immune enhancement. By using evaporated palm sugar as the natural sweetener Cocoa Mojo has lowered the glycemic index by 40% and added more nutrition to a favorite winter beverage.
This immune boosting hot chocolate cocoa comes back just in time for the winter flu season. Cordyceps and Ganoderma have long been used in china for building the immune system so it was the perfect herbal compliment for a traditional hot cocoa beverage. Darren Craddock, international herbologist and EnerHealthBotanicals spokesperson states that "The goal of adding reishi and herbs to our gourmet cocoa, Cocoa Mojo was to make it easy to get the immune enhancing herbs -- especially for kids -- during the season you need it most."
Palm Sugar is made from the coconut palm (Cocos Nucifera) and has been shown to have an extremely low glycemic (GI) index rating of only 35 by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI). This makes palm sugar one of the lowest GI unprocessed sweeteners available. By comparison, most commercial Agaves are GI 42, Honeys are GI 55 and Cane Sugars are GI 68. Palm Sugar is especially high in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron and is a natural source of the vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C.
Palm sugar is absorbed slowly into your blood stream which prevents the normal sugar spike and crash. When palm sugar is added to an organic herbal cocoa mixture, this natural sugar turns this traditional syrupy winter beverage into a powerhouse of natural antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and immune boosting compounds.
Switching sugars from rapadura sugar cane based sweetener to evaporated palm sugar adds more nutrition and lowers glycemic index. EnerHealthBotanicals made the decision to switch to evaporated palm sugar in the summer of 2008 when they located a reliable source of organic palm sugar and the new improved hot cocoa product is set to be on virtual shelves in early November.
"My biggest hope," says Craddock, "is that while your family is enjoying a great tasting hot cocoa they are building impenetrable immune systems."
