Cacao contains various nutrients that promote a sense of well-being. Methylxanthines are compounds that act as stimulants, acting on the central nervous system, they increase the heart rate and relax smooth muscles. Cacao contains a notable amount of the methylxanthines caffeine and theobromine. They act upon adenosine receptors in the central nervous system, enhancing arousal, mood and concentration levels.

It releases the compound anandamide, which produces uniquely euphoric feelings of relaxation and contentment!
