Derived from the seeds of cacao fruit, chocolate in raw form contains a variety of mood-enhancing components:
Phenylethylamine (PEA) is partly responsible for the "high" that you get from eating chocolate. It facilitates the release of dopamine, a naturally occurring chemical, into your body and is reputed to be a mood elevator and an anti-depressant. PEA is a major class of chemicals produced in the body when one falls in love.
Anandamide is a neurotransmitter responsible for the prolonged pleasurable sensation of the previous mentioned PEA. Known as the “bliss molecule”, it is released in the human body as feelings of happiness.
Tryptophan is a powerful mood-enhancing nutrient, critical for the production of serotonin, our primary neurotransmitter.
