What amazing properties?
There are good reasons chocolate and love are associated. Phenylethylamine (PEA) has also been called the "Love Chemical." It seems to create euphoric feelings, excitement and arousal. PEA levels often peak during orgasm.Cacao contains PEA in natural abundance and raises our brain's PEA levels, causing our dopamine levels to rise as well. That is just one reason it makes us feel so good! Cacao also contains Anandamide, also known as the "Bliss Chemical." It is derived from the Sanskrit word "ananda" meaning bliss. Cacao also contains the essential amino acid Tryptophan, which is critical for production of Serotonin, our primary neurotransmitter. You Deserve Bliss!
Activate Your Superpowers!
Not only does cacao provide a natural high, it is also a health food! Cacao is one of nature's richest sources of Antioxidants & Minerals. It is also nature's primary source of Magnesium, making it true Heart Medicine. Magnesium is much needed by the heart as it decreases blood coagulation, lowering blood pressure and helping the heart pump more effectively. So it is actually true that "chocolate opens the heart." Magnesium also helps builds bones and increases brain power, helping to Activate Your Superpowers!
Ladies, your intuition is right on

Chocolate Yoga? O ya! Magnesium increases flexibility and strength. We love it before our morning yoga or any excercise. Breakfast of Champs!
Feel the Energy!
Cacao is high in Theobromine, a natural stimulant. It is much less stimulating than caffeine (which chocolate contains very little of) but takes longer for the body to break down. This results in a more gentle, sustained energy boost. Theobromine is also the reason to keep your dog away from your chocolate. They do not have the enzymes to break it down and it can be a bit like doggie cocaine. Not good. Other sources of theobromine include yerba mate, coffee, tea and the kola nut.
Beauty and The Treats. Cacao hydrates your body from the inside out, providing natural moisture to your skin. It can also help you lose weight. What?!? True. Ever notice that cocoa powder is in most weight loss products on the market? This is due to it's MAO inhibitors, which curb the appetite naturally. It is real food and we think it makes a marvelous meal. Most importantly, chocolate so often makes one smile, which radiates your natural beauty full force.
