Chocolate is the most craved food in the world, and for good reason. It delivers not only powerful sensory benefits, such as aroma, flavor and texture, but it also delivers mood-related benefits such as increased energy and improved focus along with other health benefits − all in one package. RFI recognized that few products in the food and functional ingredient fields could deliver the same attributes and impact. In the 1990s, our team of researchers dedicated themselves to developing and bringing to market this remarkable solution - Chocamine®.
Chocamine® is a patented cocoa-based extract, comprised of a synergistic blend of substances found in chocolate, and known to promote energy, focus, mood and performance as well as satisfy cravings. The beneficial effects of chocolate come from more than one component and Chocamine® is standardized to leverage the full symphony. Some of the most notable compounds include xanthine alkaloids (principally theobromine, a mild stimulant and cognitive aid), amino acids, nutritional minerals, biogenic amines, anandamides and polyphenols. It is GRAS, great-tasting, clinically tested and a convincing source of energy.

I'm not sure yet how I feel about chocamine. I know it is a good product, it is clean, and is supposed to give you a lift, but for me I think whole cocoa powder works more effectively. Maybe I need the fat in the cocoa powder (natural, not dutched, and from a verifiably clean source as many if not most cocoa powders have high levels of some heavy metals) in order to better absorb the good things that are contained in cocoa powder. I'm not sure about this yet, am still using chocamine and comparing with straight cocoa powder. I gave it a four because I have no doubt this is a great product--and it is very easy to travel with! Comes in a great jar with a screw-on top. So I think the only thing I could say is try it yourself and see how it affects you. I do want to thank Nootropics for their outstanding shipping speed. I felt like I had just placed the order when the mailman was at the door with my box! That was very encouraging, especially since I live WAY out in the boonies, far from any major city. I hope Nootropics stays in business and keeps up the great customer service and shipping. I will be a life long customer if they do. Thanks. cynthia mccoy on 23rd Aug 2016
when taking this product i seem to be more engaged and enthused for whatever i am working on. When not working, and just relaxing i notice a mood boost and heightened awareness. due to underwhelming effects from cacao powder, i did not expect much from this product. i bought it primarily because i was looking for something to supplement alongside caffeine. but the effects,being noticeable and consistent, exceeded my expectations.

This was outstanding.
I found that 500mg on an empty stomach kept my mood elevated for most of the day. I felt extremely bliss using Chocamine.
It is super handy to have in the pantry for those days that you need a physical and mental boost that will last beyond 6 hours.
Only side effect that I noticed was that it aggravated my GORD/GERD. Lucas Aoun on 8th Aug 2016
