Clay cleanses the body of toxins
Lately, experts are increasingly talking about the fact that the earth really helps to cleanse the body of toxic substances. Previously it was thought that the earth and clay eating only humans and macaws, recently, however, scholars note that this "kitchen" is popular among other animals, especially during the ripening of fruits, as unripe fruits and berries contain large amounts of toxic alkaloids. For example, to make an edible unripe potatoes contain solanine — a poisonous and bitter glycoalkaloid, the fruits should be coated with alumina. It has kaolin (white) clay, which neutralizes the bitterness and pull solanine from potatoes.

Love in chocolate
Some say that "the fault" all contained in cocoa beans phenylethylamine — a chemical released in the brain when he is in love or feels happy. You've probably heard the expression like: "to Love is to eat a lot of chocolate." At the same time, for example, cheese contains phenylethylamine even more, however, his popularity pales in comparison with the universal love for chocolate.
Some experts attribute the "chocolate fever" with anandamide — similar cannabinol, the main psychoactive component of marijuana. Anandamide, which is also called "the molecule of bliss", elevates mood and reduces fatigue, although experts note that, if a person wants to achieve the effect similar to the effect of marijuana, he will have to eat at least a kilogram of chocolate.
In addition to anandamide and phenylethylamine in cocoa beans theobromine is present — a substance similar to caffeine, which are known to be addictive. What people love chocolate, scientists have yet to figure out, as it contains about 380 active substances. But is it really that important? Because love is irrational feeling, and instead try to figure out its nature, better to just enjoy every bite.
