To all the women and men in the world who curl up in a fetal position for an extended amount of time whenever it’s that time of the month, there may be a solution to your period-induced woes. And it comes in the wonderful form of a chocolate bar.
That’s right, there’s officially a chocolate bar that claims to have the answers to all of your crampy problems.
Marc Widmer, a Swiss chocolatier created the Frauenmond bar (meaning “women’s moon”), which combines 17 Swiss mountain herbs with 60 per cent chocolate to ease the pain in your uterus.
“Eating a small amount of high-quality chocolate (typically that which has 65 per cent or more ‘cacao’ may actually help alleviate cramps and PMS [already],” said Elisabeth Morray, a clinician and writer for Kotex.
But the mixture of herbs and chocolate in Widmer’s bar takes it a step further. The Frauenmond bar can apparently elevate the levels of serotinin in your body, helping you to relax and ease menstrual pain.
According to Widmer, his chocolate will “promote overall well-being.” Sounds pretty good to us.
Right now, the chocolate’s only available to residents of Sweden through Wildmer’s company, Chocolate with Love. But it’s only a matter of time until people start making period chocolate available for the rest of the world to try out.
