ESTHECHOC: The World's First Anti-Ageing Chocolate
Every chocoholic knows that kicking the good stuff isn’t easy but what if we had actually had an excuse to indulge in our obsession?
Well now we can, thanks to the genius team at Cambridge Chocolate Technologies who after years of research and experimentation have created the worlds first youth boosting ‘Smart’ chocolate, Esthechoc!
Clinically proven to improve the health of the skin in just 3 weeks, just one small bar (7.5g) of Esthechoc a day can reduce inflammation, boost microcirulation to the skin and maintain healthy oxygen levels for more youthful and radiant appearance.
Its secret? Two powerful antioxidants; Astaxanthin – a strong anti inflammatory 6000 times stronger than vitamin C, and Cocoa Polyphenolic Epicatehins – known to increase oxygen transport in plasma and microcirculation. Its this, along with a unique miceller technology used in the chocolate to make the substances more bioavailble (or 'more easily absorbed' for those of us without a science background) that is key to Esthechoc results.
What’s more Esthechoc is vegan, 100% natural and only 38 kilocalories per bar, so you can get your chocolate fix with out having to worry about your waistline.
But enough of the facts, let's get down to the important stuff. How does it taste?
Although admittedly there is a subtle taste of algae, Esthechoc is sufficiently chocolatey to still be enjoyable and if a daily dose can result in taut, plump, glowing skin while still satisfying my sweet cravings, I think I can put up with the algae.
Esthechoc costs £42.50 for a 30 day supply.
