Take her to the bar

Did you know that choco­late can in­crease sex drive as well as make you smarter and faster?

It might seem a stretch to say that run­ning and choco­late have any­thing in com­mon, un­less you do one so you can eat the other. But new re­search sug­gests eat­ing choco­late elic­its the same feel­good en­dor­phin rush as a run – and make sure you share your bar with your lover if you want to take your next work­out into the bed­room. Women who eat choco­late daily have higher lev­els of sex­ual de­sire than ab­stain­ers be­cause it re­leases en­dor­phins and the hap­pi­ness hor­mone sero­tonin, as well as con­tain­ing a com­pound called phenylethy­lamine, a known aphro­disiac, and other com­pounds that heighten sen­si­tiv­ity, ac­cord­ing to a study pub­lished in the jour­nal Food Re­search In­ter­na­tional. Still need con­vinc­ing that it’s worth buy­ing a bar or two? Choco­late also makes you smarter as well faster. In a study in the jour­nal Ap­petite, sub­jects who were fed ei­ther milk or dark choco­late showed bet­ter prob­lem-solv­ing abil­i­ties and faster re­ac­tion times than those who weren’t.
