- Mood — serotonin, tryptophan, tyrosine and phenylethylamine. Cacao contains the mood improver, anandamide. Another mood-enhancing compound found in cacao is PEA or phenethylamine, which triggers the release of endorphins and pleasurable opium-like neurochemicals. Cacao boosts brain levels of serotonin, the feel-good brain chemical.
