If someone told you that chocolate could really eradicate wrinkles, would you believe them? According to researchers at such highly respected universities as Cambridge and University College of London, the answer is, “Yes!”
Some tests have verified that the antioxidant levels found in chocolate (the same as a fillet of Alaskan salmon) can keep skin looking smooth and glowing. A researcher at Cambridge University in England says that the antioxidants in chocolate are the same ones that “keep goldfish gold and flamingos pink.”
One test indicated that after four weeks of consuming chocolate on a daily basis, there was evidence that blood inflammation had decreased and increased blood supply to the skin was more prevalent.
Some of the clinical trials used people who were in their 50s and 60s and the result was that the skin’s physiology levels were restored to those levels of 20 to 30 years old. The product is called “Esthechoc” and is comprised of dark chocolate which comes in a small (7.5 gram bar) and is composed of free-radical-fighting polyphenols.
Those involved in the trials visibly noticed that their skin was more pliable and supple.
Some think that anti-aging chocolate is too good to be true, but this guilt-free delicacy was developed by scientists who specialize in anti-aging who claim that it slows down the development of sagging skin and wrinkles.
Day by day, scientists are revealing that everyone’s favorite treat – chocolate – can be an amazing way to prevent wrinkles and make our skin smoother and better able to resist the sun’s harmful rays.
It’s the dark chocolate which does the best job of preventing wrinkles and boosting health. Dark chocolate is now available with no sugar. Avoid “Dutch” chocolate which is processed with a solution that destroys the helpful flavonols.
All you have to do is nibble a couple of squares of dark chocolate each day to help your resistance to aging skin. Scientists who conducted studies at the European Dermatology in London, England claim that consuming dark chocolate on a moderate basis may also help prevent skin cancer.
With all of the excitement about consuming chocolate to prevent the aging of skin, it’s worth the time and effort to research what’s been done to create products using this delicious and desirable food.
Remember that milk chocolate and other forms of chocolate don’t have the same effect as the dark chocolate, which hasn’t been processed. There’s no benefit at all to eating the processed chocolate.
