Can Chocolate makeyou happy?

It is a widely assumed fact that chocolates make one happy. One primary reason is the psychological effect it has as it tastes great, smell good and therefore makes people happy.
 
However, the true explanation of this phenomenon. Chocolate has over 300 chemicals and some of them can affect the human brain via the release of particular neurotransmitters that have positive effects on human feelings.

1. Phenylethlyamine: This causes alertness and a degree of excitement, quickens the pulse rate, and makes one happy. Phenylethylamine is sometimes referred to as the “the love drug”, because it has a feelings very similar to those that occur when one is in love. 

2. Serotonin: This is a mood lifter. One chemical that leads to a release of serotonin into the brain is tryptophan which is found in chocolate.

3. Anadamide: One of the fats in chocolate is anadamide, named after the Sanskrit word for “bliss”. Anandamide activates a brain receptor which causes dopamine production. Dopamine causes a feeling of intense well-being.

4. Eating chocolate releases endorphins into the brain. Endorphins are known to decrease levels of both stress and pain.

All of these reasons and chemicals combine to make one feel happy!
