How is dark chocolate good for our wellbeing?
ITS ALL ABOUT THE PLANTS
The Nerdy Bit
Cacao is a SUPERFOOD. The cacao in dark chocolate contains phenolic compounds that can strengthen the defences of our immune system and up our body's resistance. Dark chocolate also contains Tryptophan, instead of caffeine, which is an amino acid and is also the precursor for serotonin; our body's natural mood stabiliser. Increased serotonin allows you to feel calmer, happier and less anxious.
Dark chocolate also has the capacity to affect our dopamine levels, which is a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain's reward and pleasure centre. When you consume dark chocolate, you increase the level of dopamine in the brain which tells the individual that they should try and get more of whatever it was that caused that increase. Which is good for 80Noir Ultra, as we provide perfect-sized doses to allow you to feel satiated and happy.
Alongside dopamine you have a key compound called tryzmine, which is derived from the amino acid tyrosine and a precursor to dopamine. If these levels are increase, it activates the reward center and "love drug" and is why you experience pleasure and joy when you have your first sip or bite of dark chocolate.
However, if you choose low quality chocolate, the sugar and added nasties will increase this, so you eat more and then in turn happiness turns to guilt and self punishment. 80Noir Ultra prevents this. Less is definitely more.
Cacao is synonymous with heart healing and ceremonies, where you can; with the use of a hot chocolate delve into a deeper mediatative state to awaken your inner truth and find peace and balance.
