Chocolate as a Natural Aphrodisiac


Did you know that chocolate is one of nature's natural aphrodisiacs? 

Chocolate is made from the cacao bean, which is the seed of the cacao fruit. Cacao contains two chemicals: tryptophan, which helps with sexual arousal and phenylethylamine, which is released in the brain when you fall in love and is also known as the “love chemical”. 

So there’s a reason that chocolates are the most popular Valentine Day gift and that the word “chocolate” is pretty much synonymous with the word “romance”. 

So what will dark chocolate do to enhance my sex drive? 

Dark chocolate is known to contain an amino acid called L-arginine that helps enhance your sex drive by increasing nitric oxide and stimulating blood flow to your sex organs, which increases sexual sensation and desire. 

Chocolate also contains a compound called theobromine, which stimulates the nervous system making you feel excitable and uplifted. This enhances your love mood by giving you that aphrodisiac boost!

Switching from milk chocolate or flavored chocolate to pure, unsweetened dark chocolate helps to: 

  • Make you feel uplifted and excited 
  • Give you an instant, natural energy boost 
  • Stimulates your sex drive 
  • Feel more joy and excitement

How do you identify the highest quality chocolate? 

  • Look for dark chocolate with a 70% cacao content or higher 
  • Make sure the very first ingredient is cacao or cacao butter and not sugar!
