The Functional Chocolate Company has unveiled its newest product: an ethically sourced dark-chocolate bar called Painfree Chocolate that is designed to be a “sweet treat for everyday aches and pains,” the company’s press release says.
The vegan and gluten-free, chai-flavored chocolate bar contains such ingredients as turmeric, white willow, arnica, and hops extract. “Whether you're a professional athlete or just someone who bent over to pick up a bag of groceries the wrong way, nearly everybody struggles with occasional aches, pains, and inflammation,” said Nicole Smith, CEO, The Functional Chocolate Company, in the press release. “We created our newest bar because we believe there is a better way to help with those painfully common issues. The combination of proven natural ingredients, decadent chocolate, and a sweet chai flavor makes this bar the perfect treat to make every day feel a little bit better.”
Dr. Aimée Gould Shunney, the company’s scientific advisor, added: “The Functional Chocolate Company has taken turmeric, hops, boswellia, white willow, magnesium—many of my most reliable tools—and packaged them in their new delicious Painfree Chocolate. As always, active ingredients are impeccably sourced and combined at clinically studied therapeutic doses. For me, this is an easy add-on for most anyone's chronic-pain program.”
The Functional Chocolate Company offers other health-targeted chocolate products including Brainy Chocolate, Energy Chocolate, Sleepy Chocolate, Sexy Chocolate, and Hot Chocolate for Menopause.
