Finally a healthy smoothie that helps to beat the dreaded PMT!
Produced naturally in the brain, Anandamide is known as “The Bliss Chemical” because it is released while we are feeling great.
Cacao contains enzyme inhibitors that decrease our bodies’ ability to breakdown anandamide. This means that natural anandamide and/or cacao anandamide may stick around longer, making us feel good longer, when we eat cacao.
Cacao is also one of the largest sources of Magnesium – the relaxer mineral. Magnesium fights acid buildup, neutralizes toxins and calms sensitivity to pain, all great attributes to help aid in PMT.
Women who suffer with PMT almost always have very low omega 3 intake. Increasing your cellular levels of omega 3 with chia seeds, will make a big difference to your hormonal management.
The calcium provided in enriched coconut milk helps reduce mood swings, pain, bloating, depression, back pain, and food cravings all associated with PMT.
