The Science of Cheese

At last: scientific validation for me stuffing my face with cheese every chance I get. According to the Journal of Food Science, cheese is a very rich source of phenylethylamine. This is a chemical related to amphetamines and triggers the brain into releasing mood-boosting hormones. So that explains the “cheese buzz”.

But wait there’s more. Apparently cheese also contains norepinephrine, which is a hormone that boosts the supply of oxygen and glucose to the brain and muscles. So forget the treadmill and bring on the Quattro Formaggi.
