Phenylethylamine and MAO

Some individuals who crave chocolate in large amounts tend to do so when they feel emotionally unfulfilled. There have been a series of articles in lay magazines that chocolate's mood elevating properties reflect 'drug-like' substances such as anandamines, caffeine, phenylethylamine and magnesium. However, the levels of these substances are so low as to preclude such influences. As all palatable foods stimulate endorphin release in the brain this is the most likely mechanism to account for the temporary elevation of mood from chocolate consumption. Phenylethylamine is found in many foods such as chocolate, especially after microbial fermentation. It has been suggested that phenethylamine from food may have psychoactive effects in sufficient quantities. However, it is quickly metabolized by the enzyme MAO-B, preventing significant concentrations from reaching the brain.
