Why You Need More Chocolate in Your Life Part 1: More Antioxidants

February 07, 2015 1 min read

This is a new series that will look at reasons why you should eat more chocolate--though who needs an excuse, right? First up, one of the things that makes chocolate such a healthy treat: antioxidants! It turns out that dark chocolate contains more antioxidants than most foods. These antioxidants are effective at preventing free radical damage in the body, reducing your risk of a wide range of health disorders. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="721"] Source: empregoestagios.com[/caption] (Quick Primer: Free radicals are unpaired molecules, electrons, and ions that can cause damage to your body at a cellular level. They have been linked to disorders like Alzheimer's, cancer, and heart disease.) Chocolate is loaded with polyphenols, antioxidants that can reduce the oxidative damage caused by free radicals. By increasing the antioxidant content of your body, you can protect yourself from a wide range of health problems--including some pretty serious doozies! You'll make your body more resistant to free radical damage with just a few bites of goodness every day. Bonus:Look for chocolate-covered blueberries for an antioxidant power punch.

Fast, Express Shipping.
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it just takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Signatures are required on all orders. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
