  New chocs 'stop you ageing'
Updated 28 July 2003, 20.52
Could chocolate really keep you young?
A German sweet-maker claims to have invented an anti-ageing chocolate.

They're made with dark chocolate, mango and soya milk.

Adolf Andersen from Hamburg developed the chocs with Dr Michael Kentze, from the Kentze Institute for Age-Prevention Medicine.

They say the high cacao content of dark chocolate means it contains lots of chemicals called phenylethylamine and polyphenol.

Feel-good food

Mangoes: Yummy and healthy
The first makes you feel good and the second is good at protecting your cells.

Soya milk apparently tightens the skin and has other healthy effetcs on the body.

And the yummy mango contains enzymes which are good for your metabolism.

The pair did say that if you already eat unhealthily, the chocolates wouldn't do any good.

But they claim one or two every day are good for you.

Like we need an excuse!
