For as long as we know Chocolate, is associated with love. Now scientists have discovered the connection. Chocolate contains phenylethylamine (PEA), a neurotransmitter that is released by neurons at moments of love and emotional turnarounds. An addition, wine chemist Andrew Waterhouse measured poly phenols in dark chocolate nearly same as in red wine.

For the biggest flavonoid and anti-oxidant punch choose dark chocolate with highest cocoa content which suits your pallet. Pass white chocolate or chocolate flavored candies and bars as they are pure sugar without any health benefits.
