5 benefits of Chocolate
Chocolate Will Clean You
Cocoa is naturally rich in fiber. 100 g of cocoa powder contains approximately 20 to 33 g of fiber. However, the fiber content decreases when other ingredients than cocoa are added to the chocolate. We maintain a very high percentage of natural fibers in our chocolates by carefully balancing the amount of cocoa and other ingredients and adding extra fiber to our products. You will be delighted to learn that the fibers will protect you from constipation.
Chocolate will wake you up
Chocolate also contains theobromine, the “natural” caffeine of cocoa. This stimulant releases the secretion of the adrenaline hormone that awakens the body and mind, and provides you with energy and awakens your senses.
Chocolate will make you happy
Cocoa causes the release in the brain of a wave of “happiness hormones”: serotonin, dopamine and endorphins that provide a feeling of well-being.
chocolate will protect you
Chocolate is a natural source of antioxidants containing more polyphenols (antioxidants) than red wine, tea or apples. In addition, we add antioxidants such as grape marc and green tea extracts to some of its products. Antioxidants help fight against stress, preserve vision, and prevent the development of certain diseases
Chocolate will make your heart happy
Dark chocolate helps you maintain a good balance between saturated and unsaturated fats. It is thanks to cocoa butter, which is the only source of fat in Newtree dark chocolate and is composed mainly of 3 fatty acids in identical proportions: palmitic acid, stearic acid and oleic acid. Oleic acid is known for its beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system. This fatty acid has been shown to help lower LDL cholesterol (or ‘bad’ cholesterol) as it increases HDL cholesterol (or ‘good’ cholesterol). Since stearic acid is rapidly desaturated in the body and converted to oleic acid, palmitic acid is the only “true” saturated fatty acid in cocoa butter.
