Love and phenylethylamine

Love often begins with feelings of infatuation, which actually may be nothing more than a biochemical reaction in the body. This chemical reaction can drive physical attraction and psychological connection. Infatuation is when people fall in love and can think of nothing else.

Scientists say that when the person meets someone who catches his eye, his brain is flooded with phenylethymine (PEA), which is a neurotransmitter that enables information to travel from one brain cell to another. Known as the ‘love molecule’ PEA works in concert with dopamine and norepinephrine to trigger feelings of love.

Along with dopamine, PEA saturates human nervous systems (including brains), making the person feel ecstatically happy, able to make love all night and go days without sleeping.

PEA produces strong emotional feelings, including those ‘tingling’ sensations of excitement and euphoria when the person he or she love walks into the room or hold his or her hand. The PEA response suggests that passionate love involves something more than basic cultural learning, although undoubtedly culture can work with or against the biochemical response to love objects.

The brain releases PEA when the person is in sexually aroused, PEA levels can peak during organism. Those suffering from depression have noticeably lower PEA levels. According to the research, orally administered PEA has been noted to reverse depression symptoms in 60% of the patients tested with no side effects.
