Loving Dark Chocolate
Who wants to live forever young?
Of course, I’ll be the first to raise my hand and shout, “Me! Me! Me!” like a kid. Eh, who doesn’t want to live forever young? There’s no one, right?
Most of us have already accepted the fact that we’ll die someday. But the thing I won’t accept is to grow old and die ugly. Definitely I know that you’ll agree with me.
You said impossible?
Well, we all know that smiling in the entire day won’t help you that much to prevent those wrinkles and frown lines from coming out, but one secret I discovered while doing my voluntary habit — reading the back label of the products – and that is eating Dark Chocolate!
Yeah, according to some experts, it may really prevent those signs of aging from saying hello.

As some of us know, dark chocos have some sort of detoxifying effect compare to regular ones. It is rich with flavonoids, which act as an antioxidant that protects our body from free radicals. Flavonoid is the compound that relaxes our blood pressure plus balances the hormones in our body.
But not only that! Some expert found out that Dark Chocolate or its Cacao ingredient is also rich in Resveratrol, a compound that is found to have anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and anti-cancer effect. Resveratrol was commonly found in fruit and plants like grapes, Japanese knotweed, peanut and berries; and also in red wine.
According to their scientific study, Resveratrol content of Dark Chocolate or Cacao is 2nd to what red wine has. They explained that per glass of red wine you may get around 800 micrograms of Resveratrol, while Dark chocolates may have around 14 to 18 to micrograms. It was followed by roasted peanuts that have 1.8 micrograms only.
And that’s made me wow.
So right now, I’m already biting the 2nd serving of my Dark Chocolate. If those guys were talking about per serving of Dark Chocolates, I probably digested the 14 to 18 micrograms of Resveratrol already.
