Announcing Another Great Reason to Eat Chocolate
Date:5/23/2008

Maramor Chocolates combines antioxidant benefits of dark chocolate with

anti-inflammatory benefits of Omega-3 "In terms of its potential impact on health in the Western world, the Omega-3 story may someday be viewed as one of the most important in the history of modern nutritional science." - William S. Harris, PhD, American

Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2003)

COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 23 /PRNewswire/ -- If anyone needed another reason to eat chocolate, here it is: Maramor Chocolates announced today the launch of a dark chocolate product fortified with therapeutic doses of Omega-3 fatty acids, a natural anti-inflammatory with a myriad of health benefits. Omega-3 has been widely recognized in recent years as a health-boosting powerhouse, shown in studies to improve mood, heart health, joint problems and other conditions associated with excessive inflammation.

Because our bodies don't produce Omega-3s, we must consume them in our diet. The Institute of Medicine recommends at least 160 mg per day of Omega-3, yet most Americans consume only a small portion of this recommended amount.

"This is a very exciting product as it provides a sweet alternative to other Omega-3 foods and supplements and can provide many healthy benefits for the body," said Joseph Maroon, MD, Maramor advisor and author of Fish Oil, the Natural Anti-Inflammatory. "Chocolate is a particularly good food to enrich with Omega-3 because it contains compounds that aid in its absorption. And dark chocolate is a natural source of antioxidants which help reduce cell damage."

Growing awareness of the importance of Omega-3 in wellness and health promotion has led Maramor Chocolates to develop Dark Chocolate Squares with Omega-3, which provide over 100% of the recommended daily dose of Omega-3 in only two individually wrapped portions. The product's purified Omega-3 is micro-encapsulated, making it odorless and tasteless. Consumers will savor the rich, dark chocolate, formulated with 70% cocoa for maximum antioxidant benefit. The microencapsulated process means the Omega-3 in Maramor's new product will not oxidize and lose potency, which can happen with Omega-3 in capsule form if it is exposed to air or not used promptly.

"We developed this product to offer people a delicious new way to enhance their health," said Mike Ryan, president of Maramor Chocolates. "The significant benefits of dark chocolate and Omega-3 are widely known. Combining them into a therapeutic food provides a sweet and simple way to add Omega-3 to the diet."

Maramor's Dark Chocolate Squares with Omega-3 are available at GNC stores nationwide and also online at http://www.gnc.com. More information is available at http://www.maramor.com.
