In a world where sweet cravings often clash with the desire for a healthy lifestyle, it can be hard to find a fulfilling snack that both satisfies your taste buds AND doesn’t leave you with a case of the guilts.
Morlife’s chocolate coated fruits, nuts, coffee beans and ginger offer a great alternative that are sure to satisfy. In this blog, we take a closer look at some of the benefits of what’s inside our chocolate coated treats.
On the outside: Dark Chocolate
Dark chocolate is a treasure trove of antioxidants, particularly flavonoids. These compounds can help battle free radicals, which is good news for your long-term well-being.
Dark chocolate contains elements that trigger the release of endorphins, leading to a lifted mood and reduced stress levels. It's a delightful indulgence that can sweeten even the toughest of days.
The rich and satisfying taste of dark chocolate can help you resist cravings when savoured in small portions, assisting in maintaining a balanced lifestyle.
On the Inside:
Goji berries, also known as Wolfberries, have been a part of Chinese cuisine for over 2,000 years due to their potential wellness benefits. They're often hailed as a superfood thanks to their impressive nutritional content, believed to support your overall vitality.
These berries are bursting with nutrients and antioxidants, including vitamin C and beta-carotene, which may give your immune system a boost, help your skin glow, and look after your eyes.
Blueberries are one of the few foods that are naturally blue in colour. The blue colour of blueberries comes from anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants. Blueberries are often called "brain food" due to their high levels of antioxidants and flavonoids, which can enhance cognitive abilities, reduce oxidative stress, and support heart health.
Why settle for only one berry when you can enjoy the flavour fusion of juicy dried Goji Berries, Tart Cherries, Blueberries, Cranberries and strawberries all in one!
Exploding with flavour & bursting with antioxidants which can help support your overall well-being.
Coffee beans are not beans at all; they are seeds. Coffee beans are the seeds found inside the fruit of the coffee plant, often referred to as "coffee cherries" due to their resemblance to small, round cherries.
Coffee beans are a potent source of caffeine, which can provide a quick and effective energy boost when consumed in moderation. This natural stimulant can also enhance mental alertness and focus. Additionally, they contain antioxidants that may help safeguard cells, lower the risk of certain conditions, and promote overall well-being.
Ginger boasts numerous benefits, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, soothes symptoms of nausea, enhances digestion, and potentially supports blood sugar levels. It is well-known for its ability to alleviate various digestive issues and can help reduce nausea, including morning sickness during pregnancy, motion sickness, and post-surgery nausea. Ginger can also aid in digestion by promoting the emptying of the stomach and reducing bloating and indigestion.
Inca berries, also known as Goldenberries or Physalis, are small, tart fruits that are native to South America. They have gained popularity in recent years for their unique flavour and potential health benefits. Inca berries contain pectin, a type of soluble fibre that can support gut health.
Proven Antioxidant Power
At Morlife, we know that antioxidants are important for our health, but we don't just want to tell you that our dark chocolate snacks are rich in them - we want to prove it. That's why we have our dark chocolate super snacks independently tested for their ORAC antioxidant levels.
ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, and it's a measure of how well a food can protect against cell damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells and contribute to ageing and disease.
Our dark chocolate super snacks have been shown to have a high ORAC value, which is shown in our comparison graph, showing you just how packed with antioxidants they are, helping you to protect your cells from damage.
So, if you're looking for a delicious snack that's also rich in antioxidants, check out the Morlife dark chocolate super snacks today!
