How to Use Functional Chocolate: FAQs and Facts
Functional Chocolate is a tasty treat that does more than make your tastebuds happy. But what about our bars make them an excellent option for your everyday health realities?
The answer is in our proprietary blend of herbs and botanicals, which contain ingredients that have demonstrated through studies their ability to help combat some of our most pesky health issues. From PMS to anxiety, Functional Chocolate combines the superfood power of dark chocolate with well-known botanicals to deliver equally tasty and effective nutraceuticals.
This article takes some of our most frequently asked questions about how to use functional chocolate and breaks them down for you.
Consuming Functional Chocolate: How Much and How Often
Two squares are considered to be a single serving of Functional Chocolate. However, you can safely consume an entire chocolate bar in one sitting. Because our ingredients are natural and vegan, you can indulge as little or as much as you want. Each chocolate bar contains a supplement facts label with recommended dosage and usage instructions.
If you have a persistent and predictable health complaint, such as PMS, take the recommended amount for each day your symptoms are expected to occur. For a health issue like anxiety, you may just want to nibble on a couple squares when you are about to do something that increases your anxiety levels.
If you want to indulge a little more, that’s ok. Just know that everyone reacts differently to each ingredient. Some people may notice the effects of the botanicals spontaneously, while others may require several doses before experiencing the full results. You can consume a chocolate bar daily or just as often as needed.
Delivery and Storage of Functional Chocolate
While our distributor has years of experience in delivering chocolate, there are a few things you and we can do to ensure your product arrives promptly and in good condition.
- We only ship on Monday-Wednesday during warmer months to ensure your product never has to sit over the weekend.
- We use a variety of insulation and cooling approaches so your product arrives safely.
- You can follow tracking updates so you know when to expect your delivery and you can bring your chocolate indoors and store it properly.
Once you have your chocolate, it is essential to store it properly to maintain freshness and potency. Be sure to keep your chocolate in a cool, dry place, away from strong odors that may permeate the flavor profile of your product.
Once you have opened the package, place any uneaten chocolate in a sealed container to preserve freshness until you can enjoy the rest. While the suggested use-by date for Functional Chocolate is two years, storing it properly may maintain freshness even longer.
What Health Benefits and Qualities Are in Functional Chocolate
Vegan and Organic - Our blend of botanicals comes in a base of ethically sourced, naturally vegan, and gluten-free dark chocolate (Unsweetened Cocoa Mass, All Natural Pure Cane Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Non-GMO Soy Lecithin (Emulsifier), Natural Vanilla Extract).
Superfood Properties - Even before we mix in our soothing botanicals, dark chocolate contains health-boosting properties. Amino acids called flavanols help fight inflammation and can positively affect a number of health issues caused by it.
Researched Ingredients and Botanicals - Functional Chocolate contains a thoughtful blend of natural ingredients, including researched nutraceuticals, vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and amino acids. Each ingredient has been studied for its potential effect on everyday health realities with positive results. While more testing remains to be done, there is no denying the history of botanicals as therapy for cultures dating back thousands of years.
