How much do you like chocolate, from 1 to 10? Why do you think so many people like it?
Did you know that chocolate is made from the seeds of Theobroma cacao, and that it means ‘food of the gods’? Aztecs used to make themselves drinks crushing the seeds of that tree, and believed that cacao seeds could give them particular powers, wisdom and fertility. Do you agree with the Aztecs that chocolate is so special? 😉
A lot of studies have been carried out to understand the effect of chocolate on people. The most important results of these studies are that chocolate contains substances that favour feelings of pleasure in the brain. These substances, among which theobromide, makes our brain release serotonin, making us feel happier.
How “chocaholic” are you? 😉
