Insane Chocolatier Obsesses Of Being Reincarnated As A Cocoa Bean Pod
What is it that makes dark chocolate the bomb? It comes from the cocoa plant which gets pretty stressed out. It has to survive with little rain, toxic chemicals in the environment and de-cocainization of its active ingredients. To protect from plant burnout, cocoa produces flavonols. In our body, those flavonols trigger the making of nitric oxide. Blood vessels go into “spa mode” and relax when nitric oxide is produced which lowers our blood pressure.
Nitric acid is also the chemical that is released when the moment is right for Viagra, Cialis and Levitra.
So what goes down must come up, usually! 🙂
