Over the years there has been a countless number of studies done about our beloved chocolate. It seems scientist love to pick apart one of the most addictive foods out there.
But now scientist have worked their magic on turning chocolate into something that will be very beneficial for most as we grow older.
Ivan Petyaev, of Cambridge University, has invented a dark chocolate that has many health benefits and will even give you younger, healthier skin.
The chocolate, called Esthechoc, was created in the UK at a lab called Lycotec.
Each piece weighs only 7.5grams and contains many antioxidants that trump those normally contained in over 300g of Alaskan salmon (astanxanthin) and 100g of typical dark chocolate (flavanol).
Based on clinical trials that have been conducted, on participants between 50-60, the chocolate boosts blood supply, reduces inflammation, and leads to healthier, clearer, and younger-looking skin.
Ivan explained that eating Esthechoc regularly can make your skin like it was in your 20’s and 30’s, due to the strong flavanol content in such a small amount of chocolate and the high antioxidant content.
Thanks to its low sugar content, those with diabetes can enjoy the chocolate and its benefits too!
