„Frauenmond“-New Swiss Chocolate That Will Fix Your Period Pain

We all feel it at least once a month – the painful cramps, the moodiest of moods, but strongest of all, the insatiable craving for kilos upon kilos of chocolate.

But often when we do crack into a block of that oh so creamy choc, the result is not a cure for period pain but even more irritability, self-loathing and bloating.

Swiss chocolate brand, Chocolate With Love, claims to have made a magical block that relieves your ungodly period cramps. The secret? Well the block named ‘Frauenmond’ (which translates to ‘women’s moon’) is a combo of our fave dark chocolate and 17 organic medicinal herbs.

The health benefits arise from interactions with the herbs and molecules in the chocolate to produce a calming effect on the body.

“We want to make the menstruation days of women more comfortable,” Mr Widmer

“Of course men can also eat the chocolate. I myself have already tried [it],” he added.

The news comes as scientists have claimed to be able to give milk chocolate the same beneficial properties as dark chocolate.
Researches from North Carolina State University claim that adding phenolic compounds from peanut skins to milk chocolate gives it the same antioxidant property of dark chocolate.
