They are also packed with healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B1 & B6, magnesium, zinc and selenium which help reduce PMS symptoms, menstrual migraines, period & breast pains, support thyroid health, make the skin glow and come with numerous other benefits.
Ashwagandha, an adaptogenic herb, is best known for its ability to reduce stress. It naturally supports the second half of the menstrual cycle (days 15 - 28), when cortisol (stress hormone) levels are elevated. Numerous studies have shown that ashwagandha may help to lower cortisol levels and therefore can reduce stress as well as anxiety, improve sleep quality, memory, concentration and general well-being.
Moonchy’s organic raw cacao mass comes from the unroasted cacao beans from smallholder cooperatives in Ecuador. The Ecuadorian cacao Moonchy uses is the finest ceremonial-grade cacao variety that is known for its floral aroma - Arriba Nacional, which has a higher concentration of all the beneficial substances of the cacao bean, such as polyphenol & flavanoid antioxidants, tryptophan, anandamide, phenethylamine or theobromine. The unique mix of all these compounds makes cacao a real superfood. Research suggests that frequent cacao consumption prevents premature aging, improves skin & blood sugar control, reduces stress & PMS, boosts mood & libido, supports weight control and enhances mental performance.
Cacao butter is a natural fat extracted from cacao beans. It gives Moonchy bars the creamy, smooth and melt-in-the-mouth consistency. Moonchy uses a raw cacao butter that has been cold pressed from the finest Ecuadorian cacao variety - Arriba Nacional. Cacao butter is full of healthy fatty acids, such as oleic acid, palmitic acid & stearic acid. We, women, need a dietary fat to maintain a healthy hormone balance. Without enough fat in the diet, our bodies don't work properly, and all our systems such as endocrine and immune system are affected. Cacao butter is also incredible for a vibrant and healthy-looking skin. The polyphenol antioxidants, phytochemicals and vitamin E contained in cocoa butter have been proven to improve blood flow to the skin, slow skin aging, soothe sensitive skin and to protect it from free-radical damage.
In place of milk powder, Moonchy uses tiger nuts which give the bars a sweet nutty flavour. Despite their name, tiger nuts aren’t actually nuts but tubers (like e.g. potatoes). They’re rich in a variety of nutrients, including magnesium, potassium, iron and antioxidants. They are also loaded with insoluble fibre, resistant starch and amino acid arginine which promote a healthy digestion, help feed the friendly bacteria in the large intestine and contribute to lower blood sugar levels. In some cultures, tiger nuts are also used as a natural aphrodisiac.
Moonchy sweetens its bars with a pinch of coconut blossom sugar. It gives the bars a caramel flavour with a hint of a fruity aroma. Moonchy uses minimally processed coconut blossom sugar from smallholder cooperatives in Indonesia – it is just dehydrated juice of the blossom of the coconut palm. The minimal processing preserves the nutrients found in the coconut blossom juice (iron, zinc, calcium, potassium, antioxidants). Coconut blossom sugar also has a significantly lower glycemic index than refined sugar because it contains fibre called inulin which helps slow glucose absorption.
Moonchy uses cashews and freeze-dried bananas to add a “milky” flavour and smooth consistency to its bars. Bananas are loaded with valuable nutrients, especially potassium, vitamin B6 and fibre. Vitamin B6 helps reduce PMS symptoms, and combined with a small amount of tryptophan found in bananas also helps boost the production of serotonin – a feel good hormone. Thanks to the gentle freeze-drying, the beneficial nutrients are largely preserved. Cashews contain a variety of vitamins, minerals, health-protective beneficial plant compounds, fibre, plant protein and heart-healthy fats. They are also rich in carotenoids and polyphenols - antioxidants which help reduce inflammation. Cashews also appear to lower blood sugar, triglycerides, and cholesterol levels.

For generations, it has been believed that the menstrual cycle is somehow connected to the moon cycle. The Moon in Moonchy symbolises the natural power that a woman has when she is truly connected to her feminine energy and when her body and hormones are in balance.
Moonchy’s mission is to make you feel more in tune with your body. You can do that by understanding how hormone fluctuations affect your body and mind, and by starting to sync with your menstrual cycle. Once the founder of Moonchy - Alex has started listening to her body and nourishing it according to its needs during different phases, she unleashed her own natural healing power. This was when she realised that she wants to share her knowledge and help other women experience the same benefits of healthy menstrual cycles.
As a real chocoholic, it always has been her dream to create a chocolate bar that she could enjoy every day, guilt-free, while supporting her body. Because she truly believes that food shouldn’t only be a fuel but also pure pleasure, she created Moonchy Bars – delicious and healthy bars designed to sync with the feminine cycle and supporting it.
Just as much as Moonchy cares about the women’s health, it cares as much about Mother Nature. Moonchy is committed to ensuring 100% organic, vegan, and ethically sourced ingredients for its bars. The packaging of the bars as well as all the shipping materials are completely plastic-free, made either from paper or cardboard, are to a large extent recycled and FSC certified. You can either reuse, recycle or compost all the elements.
Moonchy also wants to help create a world in which every girl is respected and enabled to fulfil her full potential. Therefore, for every Moonchy product purchased, 3% of the proceeds will support the Girls Fund of Plan International which works on strengthening girls’ rights and eliminating disadvantages, poverty and sexual violence against girls.
