Using Functional Chocolate

A single serving of Functional Chocolate is considered 2 squares, however, since our products are 100% natural and plant-based, it is completely safe to eat a full bar or more in a single day if you want to indulge. Each bar is labeled with usage instructions as well as a recommended maximum daily intake.

Each individual reacts to different ingredients differently, so effects may occur spontaneously for some, while certain ingredients may require several doses before full effects are realized in others.

Functional Chocolate bars are not psychedelic and will not lead to any feelings of inebriation. However, each individual reacts differently, and feelings of relaxation, loss of inhibition and relief may occur spontaneously. Certain ingredients may require several doses before full effects are realized.

Absolutely. While our original bars were designed to target common everyday conditions primarily for women, all ingredients are safe for men, women and children over the age of 12. We are excited to continue to expand the availability of offerings for everyone.

Just like all chocolate products, Functional Chocolate should be stored in a cool, dry, dark place, away from strong odors which can permeate the delicate chocolate flavor. While we include a Best By Date of 2 years from the date of production, properly stored, dark chocolate is shelf stable for years. Once opened, storing in a sealed container will maximize the shelf life and taste of your chocolate. Chocolate can also be placed in the refrigerator or freezer for longer term storage. 

While technically you could cook with Functional Chocolate if you really wanted to, heating the active ingredients and botanicals can reduce their efficacy, so we  do not recommend cooking with Functional Chocolate. However, Functional Chocolate pairs well with many snacks and beverages.

All of our products were designed and formulated with safety and efficacy in mind. We chose time-tested traditional herbal ingredients meant to optimize health for individuals of all ages, including pregnant and lactating women. When used as directed, we believe these products to be safe based on available data as well as decades (and sometimes centuries) of recorded use. Since scientific studies on the safety of herbal medicine during pregnancy are sparse, we encourage every person to review all functional foods and supplements they are using with their health care provider.
