Check Out Line: More Chocolate, Less Wrinkles
New studies-albeit from chocolate maker Barry Callebaut- show that eating less than an ounce of a specially-made chocolate each day may help make your skin look younger.
The antioxidant-rich chocolate may help prevent wrinkles, boost elasticity and improve hydration, the company found. It said that it found a way of preserving the flavanols found in cocoa beans during the chocolate-making process.
"Chocolate and health do not seem to fit together but it is a very interesting proposition: if I can eat something I like and it is good for me, that is great," Barry Callebaut Chief Innovation Officer Hans Vriens told Reuters in an interview. "Chocolate is probably at the bottom of the list when you think about making food healthier."
