Greensburg, IN (PressExposure) February 09, 2009 -- Rekindles romance. Invigorating men and women, and making them less inhibited. These are just some of the things that can be delivered when people consumes fine, dark chocolates and gifts for chocolate lovers. In fact, based on some studies and beliefs the Aztecs of old have already believed on the aphrodisiac qualities of these gifts. And by the time these products were introduced in other parts of the world, the label of 'aphrodisiac' stuck with the chocolates. People then associated these chocolates with images of love, romance and affection. These are the images that formed in their mind because of the attitudes that they observed in men and women who consumed these prized products.
But what are these attitudes and actuations and what makes these people act this way? Based on some studies, it was believed that chocolates contain the substances called the 'phenylethylamine' and 'seratonin'. Simply put, these substances are considered as mood-inducing agents that are found naturally in the brain. These agents are released into the nervous system when we are feeling happy or when we feel some passion and love. What these agents do is to affect the person's mood and affect the blood pressure thus making a bored person feel happy or at least alert. The consumption of these chocolates into the system can produce that euphoric effect on the person and this can also boost his energy. And between men and women, it is believed that women are the ones more susceptible to the effects of these substances than men.
But this belief about these chocolates as aphrodisiacs are still open to debates and for sure there are still some studies regarding the links between chocolates and romance. What is clear is the fact that these chocolates make the recipients especially women take notice and smile. There is something with chocolates that make them love the moment once these sweet pieces are consumed. Whether your chosen gifts for chocolate lovers are aphrodisiacs or not, if you want to make a statement this season of hearts and love these decadent creations are highly suggested. Flowers no longer just cut it; make it sweeter with finely selected chocolate gifts.
