This can only be good news.
We like our chocolate. Mix it in a cake, put it in a crepe, taste a hot chocolate, or just jump it out of the wrapper. We get it in every way.
It’s good and it makes us happy. And now it can even extend our lives.

Researchers at the University of Erlangen in Nuremberg and Auburn University in Alabama found that the combination of both ingredients could protect against naturally occurring “oxidative stress”.
When antioxidant polyphenols ̵

So next time you reach the chocolate cake, just add some zinc and you will not feel so guilty – it will prolong your life after all.
