A Chocolate bar that solves period pains

This Chocolate Can Apparently Help Your PMS

The Debrief: A Bar Of Chocolate That Keeps PMS At Bay? What is this sorcery?

Periods can be horrible, you get cramps, you get spots and you become incredibly emotional because your hormones are all out of whack. If you're one of those magical fairies who can float through periods without so much as a headache, then maybe this article isn't for you. If you're like me, sometimes a bar of chocolate is a reward for enduring another day of period cramps, but now you actually need that chocolate bar to help you through. Swiss chocolatier, Chocolate with love, have created a bar that eases your period pain. 

Marc Widmer, the brain behind this magic, told local paper 20 Minuten, that the 60% chocolate contains 17 herbs that help elevate the bodies serotonin levels – lifting the mood and relaxing the body. The bar is called 'Frauenmond' and literally translates as 'Women’s Moon,' a poetic take on the period. The idea came from a meeting with a family who created a herbal tea of the same name, and let’s face it, chocolate is more fun than tea. 

Hurrah! The chocolate is not just limited to women, men can eat it too and Marc himself has tried it. Frauenmond is still in its funding stages, so if you want to get your hands on a bar you have until the 20th of December to donate on Funders
