This trace amine causes the release of the neurotransmitters Dopamine and Norepinephrine within the brain.

This supplement is also best known for its roles in the process of infatuation and sexual desire/drive. During these times, Phenylethylamine causes the release of even greater amounts of the above neurotransmitters.

Dopamine is connected to sexual drive, feelings of pleasure, and the brain’s reward system. Norepinephrine is thought to lead to heightened attention, heart rate, and connected with the fight or flight response.

Chocolate also contains theabramine, a chemical that works better than codeine at suppressing the coughing response. Great excuse to eat loads of dark chocolate if you have a cold. (Not milk chocolate because it has too much sugar and milk is mucous forming)
