We derive the ratio of dark energy to baryon matter content in the universe from a Higgs potential matching a description of baryon matter on an intrinsic configuration space. The match determines the Higgs mass and self-coupling parameters and introduces a constant term in the Higgs potential. The constant term is taken to give dark energy contributions from detained neutrons, both primordial and piled-up neutrons from nuclear processes in stars. This corresponds to the dark energy content increasing with time. The two contributions possibly give rise to the primordial inflation and the later accelerated recession, respectively. The ensuing inflation during nucleosynthesis may explain the primordial lithium-seven deficit relative to the standard Big Bang nucleosynthesis model predictions. From the observed helium and stellar metallicity contents, we get a dark energy to baryon matter ratio of 14.5(0.7) to compare with the observed value of 13.9(0.2).
