It is said that when we are in love, the brain releases the neuro-modulator phenylthylamine also referred to as PEA. Cocoa is said to contain this love-inducing phenylthylamine as well.
When it comes to matters of the actual heart, cocoa can reduce blood pressure and contains antioxidants and flavonoids, which may decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome.
When selecting your Cocoa, the darker the chocolate and the less sugar and milk it contains, the better!
