The marvel of chocolate

Do just like me and indulge yourself to eat good luxury dark chocolate. Not only does it calm the sweet cravings,but it also has several health benefits. Dark chocolate contains antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It has positive effects on blood vessels, blood pressure, the formation of blood clots and inflammation level in the body. It also contains stimulant substances that help to increase metabolism. Many scientists say that one can actually lose weight with dark chocolate. It also helps to lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, and lower depression, which emit substances similar to hormones endorphins that provide a sense of comfort. It also increases blood flow to the brain and elsewhere, which in turn leads to an increase in cognitive ability.
A 100 gram bar of dark chocolate with 70-85% cocoa contains - 11 grams of fiber. - 67% of the RDA for iron. - 58% of the RDA for magnesium. - 89% of the RDA for copper. - 98% of the RDA for manganese. - There are also plenty of potassium, phosphorus, zinc and selenium.
RDA = Recommended Daily Intake.
To continue with all the positives of dark chocolate, I can now happily inform you that it can also protect your skin from the sun. The bioactive compounds in dark chocolate protects against sun-induced damage, improves blood flow to the skin and increase skin density and hydration. The minimum amount of UVB rays it takes to cause redness of the skin, more than doubled after consuming dark chocolate during a period. So why not eat a little every day of the year ... if you're planning a beach vacation, I think you should consider to replenish yourself with dark chocolate a few weeks or months before. .
One type of flavonoids, which can only be found in cocoa products means that cocoa is among the richest sources of antioxidants found in nature. They help to stave off the aging process and protect your cells from free radicals. Eating high quality cocoa content is a great way to incorporate anti-aging in your diet, but remember that moderation is important.
Why not use the chocolate all the way and make a great facial mask of dark chocolate and coffee to lighten skin?

Can also be called anti-aging mask

How to do it:
- Half a bar of chocolate, about 70 grams of 85% cocoa (the higher the cocoa content, the more antioxidants).
Melt over a water bath.
- 1 ½ tablespoonsground coffee beans
Stir in the melted chocolate.
Apply on face and leave on for 15 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly and lubricate with face cream.
The coffee is ingenious and increases swollowness.

Good Luck!
