Let’s rewind back to last week when you and your lover indulged in the The guilty pleasure of chocolate and strawberries. But this time, let’s focus solely on the chocolate.
Dark chocolate is highly known for its multiple uses including, but not limited to assisting with hormonal issues (particularly women on their menstrual cycles), lowering blood pressure, and aphrodisiac use. Dark chocolate is known to be used as a dipping sauce for strawberries and other fruits and also as a syrup to spread over the body of your lover. But what is it about dark chocolate that is so sexy?
Well I’m glad that you’ve asked my friends. Dark chocolate is known to increase the blood flow to sexual organs. It’s true. Chocolate contains L-arginine, an amino acid that can be an effective natural sex-enhancer for both women and men. Chocolate also stimulate and elevates your mood. It is a rich source of phenylethylamine (PEA) which is also referred to as the love supplement and the romance chemical. PEA is a mood elevator and is also considered to be a stimulant. It can promote sensations of euphoria. PEA is naturally released by your brain when in love. Dark chocolate is also an energy booster. This is not simply caused by the sweet element in the chocolate, but by the compound, theobromine. This substance works on the central nervous system and causes you to feel stimulated and excited.
The history of Western Civilization implies that the Mayans used cacao beans to pay for prostitutes. The rate per woman was about eight beans. The Aztec ruler, Montezuma was one of the first to utilize the strengths of chocolate. It is said that he used about fifty cups of a cocoa elixir before heading off to his harem. Chocolate contains flavonoids (antioxidants). Therefore, the darker the chocolate, the more potent the antioxidants.
