3 Health Benefits of Chocolate Hazelnut Crepes

#1: Enhances Immune Health

If you have allergies, then you’re all too familiar with that constant tickle in your throat or nose. Ever feel like you could itch all day and never feel satisfied? That’s thanks to an immune compound called histamine

While it certainly serves its purpose, many people have an overactive histamine response that results in misery whenever the seasons change.

Luckily, there are some natural ways to lower your histamine response and subsequently lessen that incessant itchiness. And believe it or not, the sugar-free sweetener in these crepes is one of them.

Research shows that monk fruit consumption may inhibit the immune response, which leads to your seasonal allergy attacks. When administered to mice, monk fruit was able to inhibit nasal rubbing and skin scratching by inhibiting the release of histamine[*].

#2: Promotes Heart Health

If you want to protect your heart from cardiovascular disease, focusing on anti-inflammatory foods and antioxidants are essential. Inflammation and excess oxidation are two vital contributing factors to heart disease

Hazelnuts are a rich source of antioxidant polyphenols. These phytochemicals are essential for your body’s inflammatory response, helping to neutralize inflammation as well as fight off oxidative stress[*].

Along with high levels of antioxidants, hazelnuts also contain a rich source of monounsaturated fats. These two factors combined make hazelnuts an excellent food for heart health. In fact, the consumption of hazelnuts has been linked to a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease as well as lowered LDL cholesterol[*].

#3: Supports Eye Health

Eggs are a fantastic source of the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. These two compounds provide the bright yellow color of your egg yolks, as well as the yellow hue of marigold flowers.

In your body, however, lutein and zeaxanthin’s benefits go far beyond providing a colorful meal. They have an affinity for the retina of your eye, where they protect you from potential harm from UV radiation. 

High concentrations of these antioxidants may even protect you against age-related eye diseases like macular degeneration and cataracts[*][*].
