Chocolate Stimulates Brain More Than A Kiss !

It's the way you say I love you and the way you hold my hand 
There’s just so much about you I completely understand

It’s the twinkle in your eye that I only see when you look at me

It's the warmness of your hands it sends a shock straight to my feet 
It's how you always amaze me, you surprise me all day long

This I know is true

Baby, I'm in love with you!

Happy Valentine's Day all my  friends. Above is one of my favorite Valentine poems and I feel, at the touch of the love, everyone becomes a poet. At this day, the environment is so pink and red, with red roses and balloons all around, scattering the scent of love everywhere on this beautiful day of love. It is just love in the air, everywhere. It is really a nice feeling to see a lot of love all around the world, on this Valentine's day and  I think  you all know the advent of this day.

When the christian saint (called Saint Valentine), was in jail for he was performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry. While that time , he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer and before his death, he wrote " from your Valentine " as a farewell to her and thus begins the Valentine's day today as an official feast day worldwide, when all express their deep love to their so much loved ones. This is a day full of romance, flowers and of course not to forget about chocolates. Chocolates, flowers and kisses are all the signs of romance. So friends, though must be on a hurry to reach out to your Valentine or your any loved one,  get a small time out to check out this Valentine's Day special post on how chocolate is more brain stimulating than a kiss.

You know what friends to say honestly, I thought the other way round that a kiss would stimulate one's brain more than a chocolate could. But i was wrong as the vice-versa is true.

There are two types of brain activity: Feeling relaxed and alert through the action of alpha bands and feeling alert while still being anxious which through the activity of the beta bands.

It is exciting to say that chocolate and kissing has one more thing in common rather than being a symbol of romance, which stimulating an increase in alertness and relaxation through the action of those alpha bands in people kissing and in those eating chocolate. But here is the fact that did sound like ambrosia to me which is chocolate stimulated the alpha bands more than kissing, thus, chocolate stimulated alertness together with relaxation than the act of kissing which also lasted longer than that of kissing. Also, chocolate at the same time dampened the stress stimulating beta bands than that of kissing.

So, now let reveal why chocolate is actually doing so: Chocolates essentials components are sugar and fat, and it is known that foods high in sugar, fat and salts release dopamine in our brain which consequently makes a person high. Also, caffeine and theobromine in chocolate are mental stimulants, phenylethylamine which known to raise our blood pressure and heart rate.

Chocolate also have something sexy about it, that its silky texture gives a feeling of high pleasure and the quality that it melts at the body temperature slowly, which not only prolongs our enjoyment but also stimulates a sense of smelling, another thing found in common with kissing. Chocolate also has anti-oxidants and good for our heart's health through its link to a low blood pressure.

So friends, what are you thinking about? With all these stimulating and health benefit property, and in this romantic season of Valentine's Day, should not you be with your valentine now doing both of the jobs!

Saying goodbye for today friends but while going I want to share with you one of my favorite valentine quotes: My heart for you , my valentine true.

Enjoy your Day of Valentine with your loved ones and till my next post, keep blogging, stay healthy and share your passionate thoughts with us.
