Chocolate’s unique combination of taste and attraction makes it alluring to both men and women. Not only does the effects of chocolate impact our mood, energy and sexual function in remarkable ways, but it can positively impact our health.
For a sinful treat you can't resist, here are five reasons why you should indulge in chocolate this winter:
Stimulates and elevates mood
Eating chocolate is a sensory experience, much like sex. Women who reportedly ate chocolate had better sexual arousal and more sexual satisfaction. Better known as the 'romance chemical', dark chocolate is found to contain a compound called PEA, the acronym for phenylethlamine.
As a mood elevator and stimulant, PEA can induce sensations of joy and pleasure. Researchers have found that women who ate chocolate on a daily basis had higher libidos than those who didn’t.
Benefits for your heart
There’s a profound connection between a healthy heart and a healthy sex life. L- Arginine found in dark cocoa beans can lower blood pressure and also aid the body’s cells to resist damage caused by free radicals. Not only is dark chocolate good for the heart, it contains ingredients that scientist think are responsible for the heart-healthy attributes of red wine.
Increases blood flow to sexual organs
Chocolate contains an amino acid that is an effective natural sex-enhancer for both you and your partner. It works by promoting blood flow to your reproductive organs which increases the level of sensation you and your partner receive.
Chocolate packs an aphrodisiac punch that causes one to feel a higher level of desire, arousal and sexual satisfaction.
