You may already be aware that chocolate is called the
love food and also
food of the gods. It is obvious that you have seen such tags displayed in front of special chocolates in fancy shops especially before valentine day!! But in a world where there is a very thin line between myth and fact, do you really believe in it? Well, to tell you the truth it is indeed true that chocolate is an aphrodisiac and so our forefathers are correct at least in this particular field.
It is not without reasons that chocolate is called love food. To know why it is called a love food let us first try to understand the word aphrodisiac. According to the FDA, an aphrodisiac is a food, drink, drug, scent, or device that, promoters claim, can arouse or increase sexual desire, or libido. According to wikipedia, a n aphrodisiac is an agent which increases sexual desire. The name comes from the Greek goddess of Sensuality Aphrodite. So, that means Chocolate has the ability to arouse or increase sexual desire.
Let us see how it affects us. Chocolate contains Phenylethylamine and Seratonin the substances which are known as mood lifters. These two substances are naturally found in the brain and are released when we are in erotic mood like when we fall in love, passion or lust. When chocolate is consumed Phenylethylamine and Seratonin are released by the brain into the nervous system and hence, our sexual desire increases.
Since ancient times, chocolate has been used as an aphrodisiac. The Maya's were the first to know the aphrodisiac power of cocoa. They were the first known people to have cocoa plantation. Even in their literature cocoa is mentioned as the food of the gods. It is from the Aztec's that chocolate was introduced to European world. The Aztec's think that chocolate makes women more open and makes the men vigor. Therefore, even their emperor Montezuma, to enhance his sexual ability, use to drink at least 50 goblets of chocolate every day. No doubt it was found that he had a large harem.
Cocoa was such an important crop for the Aztec that cocoa beans were used as currency. It had gained a status of an asset and when smaller tribes were conquered tributes were paid in the form of cocoa beans. The Maya's had also paid tributes in cocoa beans when they were subjugated by the Aztec.
Therefore, if you want to have a passionate night you no longer have to wait for nature to take its course. Without costing you much you can indulge your spouse and yourself in taking the love food. What makes it more worthwhile is that while enjoying the chocolate drink or the chocolate food you get aroused but what more is that it works for both of you unlike some aphrodisiacs which are found to work only for men.
Incase you run out of chocolate or sweet is a no no for you, the next best thing is Viagra, the FDA approved medicine for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
