Functional Foods Company, a leading developer of natural foods benefiting personal wellness and the environment, today introduced its widely anticipated first product, Jimmy Schmidt’s SmartChocolate®. Jimmy Schmidt’s SmartChocolate is a bar of organic Belgian milk chocolate featuring a unique truffle center that contains an efficacious load of botanicals.
“SmartChocolate is the definition of a functional food,” said Jimmy Schmidt, creator of Jimmy Schmidt’s SmartChocolate. “It satisfies the consumer’s desire for chocolate, delivers a efficacious load of botanicals benefiting body and mind, and enhances the ecosystem itself.”
The chocolate is made of the finest cocoa beans grown naturally in the African and South American rainforests and later blended with organic sugar, non-GMO soy-based lecithin and pure vanilla at a certified organic chocolate plant in Belgium. The premium chocolate is then shipped stateside and combined with efficacious levels of botanicals and subtle natural spices and seasonings to become Jimmy Schmidt’s SmartChocolate.
The first four blends include SmartChocolate Energy providing an energy boost with a blend of ginseng, guarana, goto kola, yerba mate and green tea. SmartChocolate Memory enhances brain functions with ginkgo, royal jelly and yerba mate. SmartChocolate Serenity offers a soothing effect from the combination of St. John’s Wort, ginseng and kava kava, and SmartChocolate Passion acts as an aphrodisiac through the affects of damiana, ginseng, sarsaparilla and gotu kola. Each bar contains the recommended daily efficacious level of botanicals.
In addition, the chocolate itself delivers benefits beyond the feelings of excitement and pleasure. It contains three times the flavonoid polyphenols as a glass of red wine. Polyphenols are antioxidant compounds believed to increase the activity of antioxidant enzymes that effectively detoxify the human body.
“SmartChocolate is for anyone with a natural craving for chocolate and a desire for the natural remedies botanicals provide,” said Schmidt. “Enjoy it daily for its exceptional flavor, silky texture and botanical punch to enhance personal wellness.”
The company will shortly release additional blends including SmartChocolate Dreams to promote fitful sleep, SmartChocolate Calcium to help strengthen bones and teeth, SmartChocolate Arctic Power which promotes mental endurance with rhodiola root and ginseng and SmartChocolate Heart to enhance the cardiovascular system. Jimmy Schmidt’s SmartChocolate is available at finer health food stores throughout the Midwest including GNC stores in Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky, Michigan-based Whole Foods and Merchant of Vino stores, and online at www.smartchocolate.com.
