This amino acid is found in small quantities in chocolate and is used by the brain to make serotonin, the neurotransmitter that can produce feelings of happiness.
Promotes feelings of attraction, excitement and nervousness and is associated with the initial euphoria of falling in love. It has also been isolated in chocolate. This chemical also acts as an anti-depressant by combining with dopamine that is naturally present in the brain.
A weak stimulant that works alongside caffeine to produce the characteristic ‘high’ that many people experience after getting their chocolate fix. Scientists at the Neurosciences Institute in San Diego suggest that chocolate contains substances that produce a cannabis-like effect on the brain. But don’t get too excited – you would have to ingest more than 25 pounds of chocolate in one sitting to get ‘high’ in the same way.
ANOTHER REASON TO BE PLEASED
Scientists have confirmed that dark chocolate is beneficial for our health. The greater cocoa content provides high concentrations of antioxidants called flavonoids, which reportedly prevent cancers, protect blood vessels, promote cardiac health, and counteract high blood pressure.
With news that a cup of hot cocoa can prevent the onset of dementia, further studies have been completed in order to look at other health benefits.
JS Fry & Sons produced the first British chocolate bar in 1847. The Cadbury brothers produced their own version two years later and since then it has been the most popular edible indulgence. The British public not being able to get enough of the stuff, feeling guilty about eating it, then reading studies that tell us it may be wonderfully health giving after all.
SO THE TRUTH IS?
Chocolate contains more healthy plant compounds, gram for gram, than many fruit juices. Naturally containing good amounts of antioxidant super-nutrients known as flavonoids. Chocolate and cocoa that is rich in flavonoids has been shown to have anti-clotting and anti-inflammatory effects, which could lower the risk of heart disease. Flavonoids also may help to lower blood pressure as they produce nitric oxide, which helps to widen blood vessels.
Most of the research is based on people eating more than 100g of chocolate a day. The fact that the fats and sugars added to pure cocoa in order to produce more appetising chocolates such as milk and white, may cancel out the benefits.
IS CHOCOLATE AN APHRODISIAC?
One theory is that chocolate contains a mood-boosting chemical called phenylethylamine (PEA), which is also produced in the brain when a person is in love. The hormones it releases can trigger feelings of euphoria. That’s why some people eat more chocolate when they’re depressed.
A study done in 2006 explored whether women who had chocolate every day had a higher libido than those who didn’t. At first it seemed to be true but when the data was adjusted the libidos were too similar to make an accurate reading. What may be closer to the truth is that a happy woman is more compliant than an unhappy one and the way to make her happy is to shower her with chocolates.
CAN A SLAB MAKE YOU SLIM?
There has been a suggestion that it may increase your metabolism. If that were the case these benefits would cancel out the extra calories consumed?
A study conducted by the University of California proved that adults who ate the treat frequently had a lower body mass index than those who didn’t. The link was still there even when other factors, such as how much exercise people took, were taken into account.
The findings suggested that the composition of calories, not just the number of them, matters for determining their ultimate impact on weight.
DOES IT MAKE YOU CLEVER?
A researcher called Franz Messerli of Columbia University in New York took the number of Nobel Prize winners in a country as an indicator of national intelligence and correlated it with that nation’s chocolate consumption. Switzerland came top, with the highest consumption per head and also the highest number of Nobel laureates per capita. At the other end of the scale was China, which scored low on both counts.
“When you correlate the two – the consumption with the number of Nobel Prize laureates per capita – there is an incredibly close relationship,” he said.
WILL IT MAKE YOU MORE BEAUTIFUL?
Beauty treatments often use raw cocoa powder as a main ingredient in facial treatments. This comes back to those antioxidants, which reduces free-radical damage that can come from pollution such as sunburn, cigarette smoke and alcohol.
So if you’re not up for eating it every day, you can always wrap yourself in a sweet coating, to make all your blemishes disappear.

A treat for all the family
Mastering chocolate chip cookies can be difficult as there are so many recipes available with all different techniques. This recipe however will be the last chocolate chip cookie recipe you will ever need. I never really gave much thought to chocolate chip cookies and periodically I would see recipes in books and on television which made subtle differences to taste or texture, then a few weeks ago, I was made aware of Sephra’s chocolate chip cookie recipe. I feel sad to push aside my grandmothers recipe, however I think that is only right that future generations can enjoy the very best recipe.
Blend two cups of butter, two cups of sugar and two cups of brown sugar together. Add four eggs and two table spoons of vanilla. Mix four cups of flour, five cups of ground oatmeal (measure before grinding), one table spoon of salt, two tablespoons of baking soda and two tablespoons of baking powder together. Slowly combine the dry ingredients into the butter, sugar and egg mixture. Blend with a mixer until moist. Fold in 680g of Sephra dark chocolate buttons, 226g of Sephra milk chocolate buttons and three cups or chopped walnuts (optional)
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. If you prefer them chewy so i usually take the cookies out when they look slightly underdone and shiny on top. Then once they cool they are chewy rather than crispy or crumbly.
