MMMMMM….Chocolate for Beauty

You have probably already heard how good Raw, organic chocolate is for your skin, but have you read why exactly?

Dark chocolate and cocoa powder are rich in antioxidants and have more of these natural compounds than green tea, red wine, and blueberries. Because antioxidants in cacao defend against these free radicals, they might be able to keep off lines, wrinkles and skin discoloration. Cocoa powder is high in antioxidant flavenols, which are found in red grapes and tea, noted for their antioxidant components.

So what’s a free radical?
An unstable molecule that hijack  electrons from nearby stable molecules. As a result, the pre-stable molecules turn into free radicals, and a chain reaction perpetrates. They can cause wrinkles, elasticity loss, and skin damage.

This is how antioxidents fight off free radicals:

Antioxidants help by donating one of their own electrons. This donation neutralizes the unhealthy chain reaction of free radicals. After donating an electron, antioxidants don’t become free radicals but Instead, they remain stable and unaffected. Canceling out the pending damage.

All of this sounds incredible right? Now, let’s remember, we are not talking about processed chocolate – to receive the full benefits of what raw chocolate can do, it should be in an unprocessed state.
