Chocolate

Dark chocolate has beauty benefits?  Not only does it taste good but it’s good for you. You really didn’t have to give me a reason to eat dark chocolate but, ok!  Dark chocolate has flavonoids which are a group of phytochemicals that have antioxidant qualities.  Antioxidants fight free radicals that damage the skin. Dark chocolate is known to contains high levels free radical fighting flavonoids.  Be aware, not all dark chocolate is created equal.  Make sure to look for 65% or higher cocoa content.  The types of benefits that we could potentially gain from the types of flavonoids contained in chocolate are endless.
