We really don't need an excuse for a good piece of chocolate, but knowing it is actually making us younger (pinch yourself, you are not dreaming) makes us feel even better about our evening devour. 

Of course, we don't mean dairy milk here. We are talking about high quality, low sugar with at least 85% cocoa solids to give us the potent anti ageing benefits. Dark chocolate is rich in nutrients and can protect the skin from damaging UV rays, while also working to firm and repair the complexion. It helps fight rosacea and eczema with its anti-inflammatory properties.

That lovely rush of satisfaction and happiness that we feel after eating it is caused by the dopamine which the chocolate prompts the body to release, this is the same hormone that is released after sex! It also has been suggested that chocolate can increase the production of mood-enhancing neurotransmitters.

When we are stressed, hormones like cortisol are released, breaking down the collagen in our skin and making us look haggard. Now, when we have chocolate and we aren't stressed out, we will be glowing instead. Happy mind equals happy skin!

Here are all the wonderful things dark chocolate contains;

  • Dietary Fibre
  • Fatty Acids - Monounsaturated 
  • Minerals - Calcium, Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Sulphur, Zinc
  • Phytochemicals - flavonoids, polyphenols
  • Vitamins - A, B1, B2, B3, B5

Now go and grab yourself a piece, let's all release some dopamine and keep that collagen intact.
