What Chocoholics Have Dreamed Off!
Scientists say chocolate is good for you. At long last Says Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire.
Chocolate is the latest super-food that scientists claim can slow down the ageing process.
This is the news that chocolate lovers the world over have been waiting for.
Researchers based in Cambridge claim to have made a scientific breakthrough that transforms chocolate into an anti-ageing wonder drug.
The technology increases the body's absorption of cocoa flavanols - molecules contained in chocolate that improve skin oxygenation, which is an essential factor in slowing the ageing process.
A small chunk of modified chocolate has the same anti-ageing benefits as two bars of Cadbury Dairy Milk, according to the researchers.
Dr Petyaev added that the technology had no impact on the taste or texture of chocolate and that the ingredient was safe and accepted by the food industry.
He said it is 'ready for the market'.
But nutritionist Dr Carrie Ruxton said she wanted to see more evidence.
She said: 'They are definitely on the right track. Flavanols are clunky molecules and there have been problems with absorption so it sounds interesting.
'But before I get excited I want some concrete end points that the consumer would experience. And you always have to balance the benefits with any detrimental effects.
'If you are looking at increased consumption of chocolate you will see an increase in calories and saturated fat.'
Well it might not be as good as it first seemed after reading this report, what do you think asks Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire.
