Scientifically proven -- chocolate will save your fading love life and give you a new zest for life

Do you watch for yourself how well-being and relaxation begin to flow through your veins after you have a square of chocolate? Then it’s not just your impression, the positive effects of chocolate have been proven by a number of scientific studies.

Dopamine and serotonin fly upwards

Chocolate and especially cocoa beans are the source of a number of substances that act on the human brain as a stimulant. Their influence has recently been confirmed by Swiss researchers, who examined the difference in the experience of a group of people consuming chocolate compared to an equally large reference group of people who did not eat chocolate. The results are not surprising. The direct connection between the increase in the level of so-called lucky hormones, dopamine and serotonin, and regular consumption of chocolate was confirmed. Subjects who were part of the chocolate-eating control group also had demonstrably lower levels of stress hormones, such as cortisol or catecholamine, and felt subjectively more comfortable. Chocolate also promotes the excretion of the substance phenylethylamine produced by the human limbic system, which is formed in the brain, among other things, when in contact with an attractive and attractive person.

What is chocolate made of and how?

The key ingredient is cocoa beans, which are the fruit of the cacao tree. After harvest, they are first fermented and then dried so that they can be transported over long distances. These are then roasted and crushed into small pieces so that they can be ground and obtained from the dry matter from which cocoa and cocoa butter are made. This is finally added to the chocolate again together with sugar and milk powder or lecithin to enhance the taste. In addition, it is possible to add other flavoring ingredients, such as nuts, dried fruits, alcohol, spices and the like. After that, only the resulting mass is poured into molds, allowed to solidify, packed and travels to the customer.

A natural aphrodisiac not only for women

Among other things, scientific research has also shown a link between the consumption of chocolate and the intensity and satisfaction with sexual life. This is due to an amino acid called Arginine, which has been shown to have aphrodisiac effects. So, gentlemen, do you still use chocolate only as a means of improving your partner’s mood? Don’t you want to bite too?
