Love and chemistry
Doctor Michael liebowitz, wrote a book in 1983 entitled the chemistry of love, you as a reader might think we are going to write about love, due to the title,but let us surprise you, in that very book he emphasised the aphrodisiac properties of CHOCOLATE, and linked to the chemical phenylethlomin (PEA)
PEA: is a chemical produced naturally in the brain, but also present in relatively high concentrations in chocolate(0.4-6.6 micro grams per gram)in the brain,it acts as a stimulant,increasing the actions of the neurotransmitter DOPAMINE and leading to an elevated mood and feeling of pleasure.
now, let me explain why we said chemistry of love.
there are lots of chemicals racing around our brain and body when we are in love.and of course there’s different between falling in love and being in a long term.
The difference are: the new feeling ,that you are excited most of the time,when some body is falling in love they’re kinda have these emotions like heart racing kinda like when you are at run,excitement,worrying. sweating palms,blushed,you are not feeling secured.,can not eat,can not drink,can not sleep,can not be focused,stressed out…you just want to spend your time with THE person who you met recently and have all these feeling about her or him,but being in a long term is the level after falling in love,your feeling is less complicated than before,you feel safe,there are not secrets any more,you feel secure,you are sure you both have the mutual feeling:you both are having the same emotions.and its for the best if you were married together.
And of course let us not forget about Estrogen and Testosterone play role in our status, and without them ,we might never venture in to the real love.
,but our very point is another thing,the mutual chemistry and releaseing chemical in love and chocolate.
,that initial giddiness that comes when we first falling in love,racing heart,flushed skinned,sweaty palms and the other emotions that we discussed before…
researchers say this is happening due to the DOPAMINE.dopamine is thought to the pleasure chemical.producing a feeling of bliss,(Norepinephrine is similar to adrenaline and produce the racing heart and excitement) right?
According to Helen Fishers,anthropologist and well known love researcher from Rutgess university ,these two chemicals produce elation,intense energy,sleep less ness,craving.loss of appetite,and focuced attention.
The similar actions in eating chocolate.
. here we have some thing that you might like:she as a love researcher also says:the human body release the cocktail of love rapture only when certain conditions are met (men and women). and between them if we wanted to compare,Men are more reading produce it than women,due to of their more visual nature that they fall in love with their eyes,and women fall in love eith their ears.and here we have two quotes
“after water,cocoa is the single healthiest substance you can put in your mouth .It can easily replace a number of psychiatric drugs for mood,plus it produces the same chemistry in the brain that occurs when we fall in love Chris Kilham, wellbella. while there are a great many agents in nature which boost excitement (the original words boost libido)and enhance feeling falling in love(the original words were sexual functions, chocolate alone actually promotes the brain chemistry of being in love” Chris Kilham, for news.
Nevertheless as a conclusion you can whether eat chocolate and feel all the emotions that are similar to that you are falling in love or you can meet some one and actually fall in love and hopeing that you are falling in love with your THE ONE(the one is the love of your life,your soulmate )and release all the feeling and experience the best feeling in the world falling in love ,being in love And live happy for the rest of your life .
