Healthy Planet, Healthy You
Your health and the health of the planet are important. Creating chocolate that satisfies both of these priorities is a snap because what is good for the body is often good for the Earth. Endangered Species' exceptional ingredients are carefully sourced from growers that care about quality and taste while working in harmony with nature.
Benefits For The Body
Endangered Species combines their chocolates with All-Natural and Organic ingredients - leaving no room for artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. With cocoa contents ranging from 70 – 88%, their dark chocolates boast a healthful dose of beneficial antioxidants and flavonoids. The Organic Health line combines exotic, healthful ingredients with premium chocolate to create nutrient-added, smart indulgences.
Benefits For The Soul
Chocolate has been shown to trigger the release of endorphins, the “feel good” chemicals, in the body, creating a sense of calm and even euphoria. Phenyl ethylamine, a substance found in chocolate, stimulates the nervous system - closely mimicking the feelings associated with (sigh) falling in love! Cousins of caffeine, theobromine and theophylline exist in chocolate but in small amounts. Chocolate is a much weaker stimulant than most people think. In fact, a typical 1.4oz. chocolate bar contains the stimulant equivalent of a cup of decaf coffee.
