Both the tannins in dark chocolate and the various fatty acids in almonds have many health benefits.
Dark chocolate and cacao also contain an amino acid called tryptophan that your brain uses to produce the neurotransmitter Serotonin, which can increase feelings of overall happiness. Serotonin is the feel-good chemical and influences your mood.
