A study done by the University of Exeter revealed that chocolate and wine help the skin by reducing the number of wrinkles.
“This study was conducted with the premise known that taking a small glass of wine every day was beneficial”, De Noticias wrote. “It has always been said that chocolate produces positive effects on people. Now in the study, it would be verified if they could slow down the aging process in humans”, they continued.
The study said that the flavonoids present in certain foods, such as wine, grapes, cranberries and bitter chocolate can cause this effect on the body. Flavonoids have a powerful antioxidant effect that attacks free radicals and slows aging, the aforementioned website said.
It was informed that this study was experimental and carried out in specialized cellular laboratories in England. “After several experiments, the cells to which the products were applied began to rejuvenate”, they said.
