Chocolate as an Aphrodisiac

Chocolate contains three substances, caffeine, theobromine and phenyethylamine which together give people the impression that it is an aphrodisiac.

Caffeine acts as a stimulant, which may increase arousal or interest.
Theobromine stimulates the heart muscle and the nervous system further increasing arousal and interest.

Phenyethylamine may work as a mood elevator and an anti-depressant.

The combination of these three substances gives you the impression that chocolate is an aphrodisiac. Whether or not it actually works is up to you.

Who am I?

My name is Anna.
I am a HUGE lover of Chocolate.
I eat it, I research it, and I live by it.

By day I am a dietician, ironically as it may seem.
By night, I am obsessed with the various aspects related to chocolate.

A Day Without Chocolate is like a day without Sunshine.
