Chocolate busts bad mood, infuses energy

Washington, Feb 12 — A new video, in keeping with the mood of Valentine's Day, highlights several facts why chocolate bust bad mood and may be good for you.

It explains how a bar of chocolate contains hundreds of compounds, many with beneficial properties. For instance, it improve your mood, and not just because of its delicious flavour.

Chocolate contains a number of chemicals that inhibit the breakdown of the neurotransmitter anandamide - sometimes called "the molecule of bliss" - which can block feelings of pain and depression, according to a statement of the American Chemical Society.

Chocolate contains caffeine and theobromine, stimulants that can provide a burst of energy.

The naturally occurring polyphenols in cocoa - the key ingredient in chocolate - boost levels of HDL, commonly known as the "good cholesterol" which also protects the heart, reports the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

The video, produced by the ACS Office of Public Affairs, is available at www.BytesizeScience.com.
