Chocolate is made from the bean of the cacao tree Theobroma cacao. When the seeds are processed its name is Cocoa, the unprocessed bean pressed is called Cacao. When heated in chai herbs water, it is much used as an occasional substitute for Coffee (Coffea arabica), and between 35-45g per cup with chili the Cacao is working psychoactive and can release subliminal processes.
Cocoa contains certain chemicals and sensory properties that make the product very appealing. Cocoa contains theobromine (a chemical related to caffeine). The sugar in chocolate releases serotonin (a brain chemical related to a positive sense of well-being). Cacao is recommended to drink not sweetened and without milk.
Chocolate is a sensory pleasure and it is known as the "FOODOFLOVE". The motivation for chocolate preference seems to be primarily, if not entirely, sensory. WHY DRINK CACAO? - Anandanoid is one of the "LOVECHEMICAL" from Cacao which can change a person's state (e.g., mood, hormone levels). Based on correlational data, we find little evidence for a relation between addiction to Chocolate or the pharmacological (e.g., xanthine-based) effects of Chocolate and the liking for Chocolate. The celebrated Italian libertine Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798) took Chocolate before bedding his conquests. This was on account of Chocolate's reputation as a subtle APHRODISIAC. chocolate's key ingredient is its phenylethylamine "love-chemical". Yet the role of the "Chocolate amphetamine" is disputed.
Most if not all Chocolate-derived phenylethylamine is metabolised before it reaches the central nervous system. Some people may be sensitive to its effects in very small quantities. The consumption of Cacao causes the release of ENDORPHINS, the body's endogenous opiates. Enhanced endorphin-release reduces the Chocolate-eater's sensitivity to pain.
Endorphins probably contribute to the warm inner glow induced in susceptible chocaholics. Chocolate is one of the cosmic gifts to the world. It proved popular in Europe after the return of the Spaniards. So popular, in fact that ecclesiastical authorities frowned upon Chocolate drinking as immoral and provocative of immorality; finally a Papal Bull was issued prohibiting the faithful from drinking it on the grounds that it was an aphrodisiac. Other names: Chocolate, Theobroma cacao.
