Chocolate Stimulation
To get people through the daily ups and downs of life, early civilisations all chose food that acted as a powerful stimulant. For the Americas, it was Chocolate, that originates there. For the African Continent it was coffee, which originated in Ethiopia and for the Asian Continent it was tea. Melt naturally believes chocolate is the best choice. Chocolate combines caffeine with many other neurotransmitters which trigger the feelings of pleasure and love. Not surprisingly Chocolate is called the food of the Gods. Surely, if chocolate had been around in the time of the Ancient Greeks, Cupid would have dispensed chocolate instead of shooting his lovers with arrows The three chocolate chemical compounds which act as neurotransmitters are: Theobromine caffeines chemical cousin, which is a stimulant for the central nervous system and the circulation of blood. Phenylethlyamine which triggers the release of pleasurable endorphins and is sometimes called “the love drug” Tetrahydrocannabinol or Anandamides which activates dopamine production, causing a feeling of intense well-being and euphoria. The name derives from the Sanskrit word "ananda", which means "bliss" Liquid LOVE The most fun way to drink hot chocolate Stir into hot milk or cream for the most delicious, rich hot chocolate drink Eat ENDORPHINS Single Origin Milk is the silkiest, most satisfying milk chocolate bar Pure Bliss The STIMULATING Stack "Bar-gain" - LESS THAN £6.50 A BAR
