In the latest scientific wonder, Cambridge University researchers are about to launch a new brand of anti-aging chocolate called "Esthechoc," which comes after a decade of research, and its use has shown some serious improvements in skin health and rejuvenation, making subjects' skin look up to forty years younger!
Science Daily has already reported in the past about the benefits of certain foods that have been shown to halt aging up to a point (some of these foods are buts, berries, olive oil, red wine and, yes, cocoa), but the anti-aging chocolate might mark the first time that a food is created with the sole purpose of fighting against aging.
According to RT, the anti-aging chocolate is set to start appearing in United Kingdom stores and spa salons by next March, and it's being heralded as something of a wonder food: while its biggest attraction is the fact that it has scientifically shown great improvements in users' skins, the fact is that "Esthechoc" is also low in calories and sugar-free, which makes it safe for diabetics.
News Every Day reports that this incredible anti-aging chocolate comes from the mind of Dr. Ivan Petyaev, who used to be a researcher in Cambridge University until he ultimately founded his own lab, biotech firm Lycotec, where he and some of his colleagues spent about 10 years developing the magic chocolate, testing its potency with 3,000 people between the ages 50 and 60.
As I Know Today reports, the anti-aging chocolate developed by the Cambridge scientists has been announced as the first-ever Beauty Chocolate, aimed to reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin, set to be presented officially for the first time at the Global Food Innovation Summit in the UK capital, London.
The dessert is 70 percent cocoa dark chocolate, and also combines two of the most powerful antioxidants known to mankind, cocoa flavanols and marine carotenoid astaxanthin.
If you're in the UK or visiting after March, it's a good idea to try out the new anti-aging chocolate, since it's unknown when it will reach other markets.
