sustained energy

theobromine and caffeine are the two primary stimulants found in dark chocolate. these two naturally-occurring chemical compounds work together to increase both physical and mental performance in a smooth and sustained manner. muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory systems and neurotransmitters in the brain are all stimulated, and hunger is suppressed. whereas caffeine on its own can be jittery and provoke a crash, theobromine is much gentler and longer-lasting, and there is no crash. a third stimulant—theophylline—also plays a role, as does the mood-enhancing compound phenylethylamine, also known as the “love drug,” and a compound called anandamide, also known as the “bliss molecule.” but theobromine is the dominant force.
