Benefits of Coconut Milk with Chocolate Flavor
Help improve mood
The taste and texture of chocolate stimulates the happy region of the brain. Coconut milk with chocolate flavor also contains tryptophan, an essential amino acid, which helps stimulate the production of serotonin – an antidepressant in the brain. Experts say that the emotions created by chocolate are the same as when we are in love.
Coconut milk with chocolate flavor can help lower blood pressure, reduce blood volume (thereby reducing the risk of stroke) and fight inflammation. Chocolate is high in flavonoids. Flavonoids can stimulate the body to produce more nitric oxide, helping to expand and “relax” blood vessels, thereby lowering blood pressure.
The flavonoids in the coconut milk with chocolate flavor also help prevent bad cholesterol from being oxidized, thereby not causing narrowing of the arteries, flavonoids contain stearic acid. Stearic acid does not raise bad cholesterol, even good cholesterol.
Good for brain
Coconut milk with chocolate flavor also has epicatechin, which helps the brain fight off the formation of binding proteins or amyloid plaques. These are risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease.
