  • Publication number: 20060134294
    Abstract: A delivery system for nutraceuticals uses a low caloric chocolate base for containing one or more nutraceuticals, either blended with the chocolate itself, or added as a liquid or crème filling. The chocolate has a relatively high level of oligomeric proanthocyanadins, and preferably further includes a phytosterol and DHA, as well as being sweetened with a sweetener blend containing tagatose and a secondary low caloric, high intensity sweetener, preferably Lo Han Guo extract. Using the inventive system, delivery of nutraceuticals in unit dosage form is facilitated, as the selected dose is carried within individual chocolate product pieces that taste substantially the same as conventional chocolate, though with few calories from carbohydrates, or effects on insulin response encountered with typical chocolate formulations.

  • Publication number: 20040198754
    Abstract: A composition for suppressing appetite and cravings for substances such as nicotine, coffee, sweets or chocolate while improving energy and enhancing mood comprises theobromine or a salt thereof at an effective amount of from about 250 to 4000 mg. Using such relatively high proportions of theobromine, without added caffeine or ephedrine provides an effective method for promoting weight control or to halt substance cravings without the side effects associated with such stimulants. The composition also includes Rhodiola rosea extract to offset stress effects from reduced food or substance intake, and to further improve mood, and clarity of thought and ability to handle stress, and to also increase endurance while reducing muscle pain.
