Lotus has the following products in this category.

Health

Q. Isn't Chocolate bad for health?

Q. Doesn't chocolate cause pimples?

Q. Can I give chocolate to my dog (cat, bird, other pet)?
No. Generally for all pets, a small chocolate bar can be poisonous if not lethal, especially for small puppies. The theobromine in chocolate that stimulates the cardiac and nervous systems is too much for animals to cope with.

Q. Is chocolate really an aphrodisiac?
Chocolate contains small quantities of caffeine, theobromine and phenyethylamine that can make one giddy. Caffeine, a well known stimulant coupled with theobromine that stimulates the heart and the nervous system and phenyethylamine, an anti-depressant are all present in trace quantities in a chocolate bar. The trio molecules makes you more hyper and full of energy, it can also make your heart race... a feeling that has been associated with love; and hence chocolate is linked to being an aphrodisiac apart from being the food of the gods!!!
