You all like chocolate and cacao, don´t you? Me too! The state of mind and the bodyfeeling after it is so nice. So why is that?
The main psychoactive components in cacao are L-Tryptophan and Theobromine. Tryptopan is in the body transformed to Serotonin. That´s what makes you feel well and happy. It regulates your emotions, your motivation, your pain tolerance and your mood to name just a few.
Theobromin acts similar like caffein – it is stimulating, raises your heartbeat and gets you alert and focussed on the here and now.
Welcome to neurohacking. With this knowledge you can drop your chocolate addiction and go for raw cacao (without shitty industrial sugar) or directly for Tryptophan or 5-HTP to get the same effect without poisoning yourself. You are welcome! More to follow.
