Heart Chocolate appeals to diabetics

TORONTO Innovative Life Sciences Corporation recently launched Heart Chocolate with CM-X, positioning it as a product that, aside from containing no sugar and few calories, provides significant health benefits for diabetics and others.

The chocolate, which provides CM-X, contains a natural proprietary compound of cinnamon and bitter melon extracts that have been developed by the company for the treatment of diabetes and related cardiovascular diseases.

According to Maggie Laidlaw, director of the Clinical Trial Division of Nutrasource Diagnostics Inc. and former associate director of Human Nutraceuticals at the University of Guelph, the bitter melon and cinnamon extracts help reduce blood glucose levels, increase glucose tolerance in diabetics and those with metabolic syndrome, reduce total and LDL cholesterol, as well as triglycerides.

Heart Chocolate was launched during the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival with sales exceeded expectations‹more than 600 bars were sold each weekend.
