Why do Valentine's Day and Chocolate go hand in hand? Cacao (the cacao bean is the source of all chocolate) contains anandamide, sometimes referred to as the "bliss molecule," which hits your cannabinoid receptors like a warm hug, making you feel happier while also increasing neurogenesis, the formation of nerve cells in the brain.
However, Valentine's Day doesn't have to be celebrated with highly-processed, artificially-sweetened chocolate treats. Try raising the bar this year and indulging in naturally sweetened, antioxidant-rich organic chocolate infused with herbs instead! You (and your significant other) will love this...and it's ALL about the love!
