Phenylethylamine contained in the cacao is why cacao and chocolate are often associated with love. Anandamide can be produced in the brain when we are feeling great, cacao makes anandamide stick around longer.
MAO inhibitors (monoamine oxidase enzyme inhibitors) in raw cacao may dimish your appetite, and allow serotonin and additional neurotransmitters to circulate in the brain. Some folks say it even facilitates youthening and rejuvenation.
