The cream also contains real Swiss chocolate.
We can all agree that chocolate has a feel-good factor to it.
You are immediately transported to a world of bliss where you can forget your worldly problems as you self-indulge.
The guilty pleasure relationship that women have with chocolate is no hidden secret.
It is with much relish that women give in to the temptation of enticing aroma and melting happiness in the mouth.
Interestingly, chocolate contains several interesting psychoactive chemicals.
These include anandamide, a neurotransmitter whose name comes from the Sanskrit word ‘Ananda’ meaning joy, bliss and delight.
But if you thought chocolate was only to treat your taste buds, you are in for a surprise.
Chocolate, especially the dark variety, has immense health benefits, and it can give you healthy, glowing and flawless skin.
Dark chocolate contains catechins, polyphenols, and flavanols. These organic compounds make it a powerful antioxidant.
Dark chocolate is made from cacao seed extracts that are considered super fruits in terms of their antioxidant capacity.
It is widely acknowledged that dark cocoa chocolates contain more flavanols, polyphenols, and other antioxidants than any other fruits.
There is a smorgasbord of beauty products available with chocolate as the main ingredient, all to help you enjoy the decadence without the calories.
