Health Benefits of Chocolate Espresso Beans

1) Antioxidants: Chocolate and espresso give a one-two punch to free radicals with protective antioxidants. Dark, Mocha, & Whitek 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, Mocha, & White 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.
