Why are these ingredients helpful?
---Avocado contains sterols which influence progesterone who has a major role in regulating the monthly cycle, it is also rich in Vitamin E which carries oxygen to the uterus and may relieve menstrual pain
---Cacao is a rich source of magnesium, which is a physical and mental 'relaxing' mineral, relieving menstrual cramps and psychological tension. Plus it satisfies that chocolate craving!
---Maca root is rich in phytoestrogens which help to balance out multiple hormone levels, when are hormones are in harmony symptoms disappear
---Coconut flesh and the fatty acids it contains helps to stamp out food cravings and an overly ravenous appetite as well as being successful in alleviating painful or irregular periods
