Newman’s Own Organics – Espresso Dark Chocolate and Mints (Cinnamon, Ginger, Peppermint, and Wintergreen)

Health Benefits

Newman’s Own Organics now offers a high quality Signature Series Espresso Dark Chocolate. Members of the world-wide medical community have not been timid about declaring the health impact of dark chocolate and coffee, and they are calling this combination of ingredients nothing short of a cure for cancer, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, headaches, depression, and cavities.

This is a deliciously potent over-the-counter  food product that combines dark chocolate infused with espresso coffee. Unlike costly pharmaceuticals, this product costs around 50 cents per dosage.

Dark chocolate … lowers high blood pressure, say Dirk Taubert, MD, PhD, and colleagues at the University of Cologne, Germany. Their report appears in the Aug. 27 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association. [source]

Want a drug that could lower your risk of diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and colon cancer? That could lift your mood and treat headaches? That could lower your risk of cavities? If it sounds too good to be true, think again. Coffee, the much maligned but undoubtedly beloved beverage, just made headlines for possibly cutting the risk of the latest disease epidemic, type 2 diabetes. [source]

“Our study demonstrated impressive enhancement of endothelial function following the acute consumption of dark chocolate and cocoa,” said David L. Katz, MD, MPH, principal investigator of the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center study and director of the Prevention Research Center. “The results are exciting because they show that dark chocolate, a highly-popular treat long associated with pleasure, has health promoting properties as well.” [source]

Eating Mints Prior to Chocolate Consumption

For an interesting flavor boost, try eating Peppermints or Wintergreen mints shortly before eating chocolate. Your taste buds will have heightened sensitivity and this will increase the chocolate experience.

Recommended Products

Below are some of the Newman’s Own Organics to consider.

  • Newman’s Own Organics Dark Chocolate. Positive news and reports about dark chocolate from doctors, research studies, and medical journals is overwhelmingly in agreement. It’s rare that something so good for you would taste so good. Newman’s Own Organics Dark Chocolates are not only good for your health, they are ethically sourced and environmentally responsible.

  • Newman’s Own Organics Mints. It’s common knowledge that consuming some mints throughout the day can reduce hunger (and therefore caloric intake), resulting in weight loss. Safer and less expensive than artificial appetite suppresants, mints are an excellent alternative. However, some mints are curiously too strong and contain curiously unnatural sounding ingredients such as Red Dye #20. Fortunately, Newman’s Own Organics Mints are made with organic and natural ingredients. They are available in nostalgic collector’s series tins as well as standard packaging.

    • Testimonial. “I eat these mints on a daily basis. For variety, I keep all four flavors on hand. I’m amazed how quickly my hunger pains dissapear after just a few pieces!” ~ Gregory Johnson of Iowa City
  • Newman’s Own Ranch Dressing. There’s nothing quite like a fresh bowl of salad with Ranch Dressing, unless it kills you. It’s a known fact that many people have a severe allergic reaction to Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) that could be life threatening. The ingredient has been banned in many foods. Given this fact, it’s astonishing that some irresponsible companies still willingly and unnecessarily put MSG in their products. Ranch Dressings are a food product that commonly would include MSG. It’s not surprising that the Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing web page has the ingredients hidden. Fortunately, Newman’s Own Ranch Dressing is made with only natural ingredients and NO MSG. While not an organic product, the natural ingredients are much safer and more nutritious than the alternatives out there. [Product Page | Buy on Amazon ]
