Choffy is a super-rich source of magnesium, which has a major role in metabolism. Did you know that 75% of the US is below the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of Magnesium?! Do yourself (and your metabolism) a favor and drink some Choffy every day!
Metabolism is the rate you burn the calories that you consume. The higher your metabolism, the better. Other factors that positively affect metabolism include exercise, eating steadily through the day, and staying hydrated. Choffy not only keeps you hydrated (also plays a major role in metabolism), but is also a rich source of magnesium.
To find out more about magnesium’s role in metabolism, let’s go to some sources for more information.
From the National Institutes of Health:
Magnesium plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism. It may influence the release and activity of insulin, the hormone that helps control blood glucose (sugar) levels (Kobrin SM and Goldfarb S. Magnesium Deficiency. Semin Nephrol 1990;10:525-35). Low blood levels of magnesium (hypomagnesemia) are frequently seen in individuals with type 2 diabetes.
From a Registered Dietician and Dr. Oz:
Magnesium is Mother Nature’s muscle relaxant, and, by turning down our fight-or-flight response, it keeps things like our cortisol levels in check and our digestive system working great. Also, cacao contains theobromine and anandamide – theobromine is a natural stimulant and anandamide is an endorphin (think “runner’s high” or a feeling of bliss). Together, these nutrients stimulate the body internally to get your engines revving for more metabolic burn.
