Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans
1) Antioxidants: Chocolate and espresso give a one-two punch to free radicals with protective antioxidants. Dark chocolate contains antioxidants in the form of flavonoids, while espresso beans contain polyphenols, which are known to reduce the damaging effects of free radicals.
2) Natural Mood-Lifters: Dark chocolate can increase serotonin and endorphins, your body’s natural “feel-good” chemicals that put you in a good mood. Coffee produces a similar feeling because it stimulates the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which triggers the pleasant feelings that come with sipping a cup of coffee.
Recipe Ideas for Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans
