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.
