Chocolate. It’s what’s for breakfast…or could be if you have some Moon Cycle Bakery treats hanging out in your fridge. When we crave chocolate during our cycle, it may be a good indicator that we’re lacking in the micronutrient magnesium. Our magnesium drops when our progesterone rises, causing some not so great side effects including headaches, bloating, low blood sugar, constipation, sugar cravings and fluid retention. Cacao comes to the rescue and is a helper in replenishing not only magnesium, but also polyphenols, iron and copper (micronutrients that are key for menstruating women to replenish) and administering antioxidants. Did we mention it tastes delicious?
