Chocolate to help ease period pain

Chocolate to help ease period pain

A confectioner in Lucerne has developed a chocolate containing 17 Swiss mountain herbs that are supposed to ease period pain.

Marc Widmer, owner of " Chocolate with Love,” describes his latest creation, called "Frauenmond" as "soothing, harmonious and even more delicious."

The idea came about 3 years ago inspired by a family who made a tea blend also called “Frauenmond".

Mr Widmer, who has worked for 5 star hotels across Switzerland, took the advice of a medical herbalist to achieve the desired result.

Although it's especially for women, men can enjoy it too, but maybe in small doses, as it costs 12.50 francs for 100 grams.

If you want to try the product you can taste it at Basler Feinmesse from November 3 to 6.
