Dark Chocolate Can Help Increase Sex Drive

Dark Chocolate Can Help Increase Sex Drive

This food is nature’s love drug!

Dr. Lorie here to let you know the benefits of eating dark chocolate to your libido and sex drive!

But first, why am I talking about chocolate and sex drive?

Great question! 
Chocolate is made from the cacao bean, which is the seed of the cacao fruit.

Cacao contains two chemicals: tryptophan, which helps with sexual arousal and phenylethylamine, which is released in the brain when you fall in love and is also known as the “love chemical”.

If you buy quality dark chocolate with a high cocoa content, then it contains more of these “love chemicals”

And guess what?

Being healthy IS Sexy!

Why? Because you have more energy, and feel better!

Did you know dark chocolate even contains a decent amount of soluble fiber and is loaded with minerals.

A 100 gram bar of dark chocolate with 70-85% cocoa contain:

  • 11 grams of fiber.
  • 67% of the RDA for Iron.
  • 58% of the RDA for Magnesium.
  • 89% of the RDA for Copper.
  • 98% of the RDA for Manganese.

It also has plenty of potassium, phosphorus, zinc and selenium.
