Scientists create anti-aging chocolate
Anti-aging never tasted so good!
Scientists in England have developed Esthechoc, (a.k.a. Cambridge Beauty Chocolate), a chocolate bar that claims to reverse the signs of aging.
Created based on research from Cambridge University, the chocolate increases circulation in the skin which helps prevents wrinkles, boosts antioxidant levels, and keeps skin looking young.
“We saw that inflammation in the skin started to go down and the tissues began to benefit,” Ivan Petyaev, former researcher at Cambridge University and creator Esthechoc told The Telegraph of the clinical trials. “We used people in their 50s and 60s and in terms of skin biomarkers we found it had brought skin back to the levels of a 20 or 30 year old. So we’ve improved the skin’s physiology.”
The chocolate is lower in calories than regular chocolate and is safe for diabetics, according to the company’s website.
However, this magical chocolate bar doesn’t come cheap; each box costs $54.
