Flaxseeds are a real superfood for women. These small seeds are known for their health and beauty benefits. The nutrients found in flaxseeds include lignans which help reduce breast pain & hormonal acne and clear the body of excess hormones. Moreover, flaxseeds are rich in fibre, magnesium & vitamin B1 which help to minimise period cramps & PMS symptoms and improve digestion & sleep quality. Flaxseeds are also the richest source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids in the world. Healthy fats are essential for optimal hormone production, they also reduce inflammation and lower the risk of many chronic diseases.
Pumpkin seeds are packed with a variety of nutrients, ranging from magnesium, zinc, phytoestrogens and healthy fats to other beneficial compounds that have been shown to provide numerous health & beauty benefits. They are one of the best natural sources of magnesium, which plays a critical role for brain function and mood - its healthy levels help reduce PMS symptoms, prevent migraines and improve sleep quality. They also contain beta-sitosterol which inhibits the enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT, which can help to reduce PCOS-related hair loss
Maca naturally supports the first half of the menstrual cycle (days 1 -14). It is high in nutrients, including amino acids, fatty acids, vitamin B6, calcium, iron, magnesium, & polyphenols which are essential for balanced hormone production. Through plant sterols, maca stimulates the endocrine system, helping to maintain balanced oestrogen and progesterone levels. Maca is also effective at improving the libido, mood, stamina & energy levels.
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.
Piedmont hazelnuts are often considered the best hazelnuts in the world. Sourced from the Piedmont region in Northern Italy, these premium hazelnuts have a very rich flavour and a creamy, satisfying consistency. They are a perfect addition to Moonchy bars. Hazelnuts have a great nutritional profile. They are loaded with nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and healthy fats.They are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid), vitamin E, phytosterols and phenolic compounds —which help lower LDL cholesterol levels, reduce fasting blood sugar and insulin levels, decrease inflammation and the risk of certain cancers.

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.
