ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the chemicals found in chocolate. Chocolate contains more than 300 known chemicals. Some react with the brain to release endorphins, great natural pain killers and mood lifters. Then there's theobromine, a weak stimulant that Hershey's extracted from the coco bean in the 1940s and 1950s and sold to Coca-Cola. Phenylethylamine, meanwhile, is related to amphetamines, a stimulant of the nervous system, which raises blood pressure and blood glucose levels.
