Can a chocolate bar really banish wrinkles? Read this article to find out. Pixabay

The world’s largest chocolate maker has unveiled a new chocolate that slows ageing process and keeps wrinkles at bay.

Chocolate makers Barry Callebaut have come up with Acticoa, which is packed with natural antioxidants and can protect skin from damage by harmful free radicals. The health-boosting chocolate bars are invented by chocolatiers at Barry Callebaut.


The company developed the time-defying snacks by finding a way to preserve antioxidants called flavonols, which are found in cocoa beans but are usually destroyed in the chocolate-making process.

Flavonols “mop up” free radicals caused by smoking, pollution, caffeine and lack of sleep, which can accelerate the ageing process.

Acticoa is available in the form of a number of popular existing chocolate brands, such as “Thortons” “Antioxi Dark Berryboost” and “Guylian Extra Seashells”.

“Chocolate and health do not seem to fit together but it is a very interesting proposition: if I can eat something I like and it is good for me, that is great. Chocolate is probably at the bottom of the list when you think about making food healthier,” the telegraph.co.uk quoted Harry Vriens, of Barry Callebaut, as saying.

Dark chocolate has already been linked with certain health benefits, such as helping to lower blood pressure and reducing the risk of strokes thanks to its high content of antioxidants. (Bollywood Country)

7th of December 1949, the Armed Force Flag Day

Since the 7th of December 1949, the Armed Forces Flag Day has been observed in India, annually. This one day is dedicated towards collection of funds from the citizens of India for the welfare of the ‘Indian Armed Forces personnel’. It has become a tradition to pay respect to the people who have served in the army, Navy and Airforce, on this day.

“The idea behind observing a Flag Day was to distribute small flags to the general population and in return collect donations.” The color-scheme of the flag is very similar to the ones used by fellow Commonwealth members like Cyprus, Kenya and Nigeria. The Flag Day signifies that it is the responsibility of the citizens of India to take care of the families and dependents of the armed forces personnel who fight for the country.
