Get the Nobel Prize ready: Chocolate that eases menstrual pain

A chocolatier in Switzerland has claimed to have created a chocolate that can help relieve period pains. 

The chocolate titled “Frauenmond” which translates to “women’s moon” is made by Chocolate with Love, which is headed by Marc Widmer, who was previously a pastry chef working at top hotels.

Mr Widmer claimed the chocolate contains 17 Swiss mountain herbs that can alleviate menstrual pains.  

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 told 20 Minuten.

"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.
