Chocolate to Fight Aging & Make Your Skin Glow?!

If there's a study that I'd like to be a guinea pig for, it'd be this one. "The world's largest chocolate maker says it may have come up with a chocolate bar that could fight wrinkles and slow the aging process, making it the latest food group to tap the appetite for healthier living."

Reuters reports that a study carried out by chocolate maker, Barry Callebaut (I can vouch for their organic chocolate, it's awesome), suggests that "eating 20 g (0.755 oz) of specially developed chocolate packed with antioxidants, or flavanols, each day may help prevent wrinkles and make skin more radiant by boosting elasticity and improving hydration."

Apparently Barry Callebaut has found a way of preserving the flavanols found in cocoa beans during the chocolate-making process, allowing them to produce a bar that is richer in flavanols.

A Wall Street analyst and a nutrition professor weigh in on the study. What do you think?
