Chocolate Actually Makes You Live Longer, But ONLY If You Do This! Fox

Love yourself a little chocolate as a pick me up in the afternoon, or as a special treat for dessert?

A lot of us might feel bad for that love of chocolate, but according to some new research it’s actually helping us live longer!

German researchers from the University of Erlangen–Nuremberg found that this only works when you’re also taking zinc supplements. 

Treating yourself to some chocolate, while taking zinc supplements regularly, helps to activate a compound which slows down the ageing process, through reversing ‘internal stresses’ that build up in our bodies over time and combatting cell damage.

Also on the list of things that could help slow ageing, when you’re also taking zinc, were wine, coffee, and tea!

Of course, if you’re eating a whole block of chocolate a day, then this doesn’t really apply… 

Everything in moderation, folks!
