The Functional Chocolate Co. has added Energy and Sleepy to its portfolio of chocolate bars.
Combining vegan, fair trade chocolate with vitamins, botanicals and clinically researched ingredients, the newest products are designed to address two of the most common everyday health realities — trouble sleeping and trouble staying awake.
Based on years of formulation experience and research, Sleepy Chocolate combines powerful botanicals including chamomile, valerian, lavender and lemon balm with the benefits of magnesium and melatonin. The Blueberry Lavender-flavored bar is designed to help people fall asleep faster and more soundly, with no next-day lingering effects.
Espresso Crunch Energy Chocolate lifts energy and vitality. With a combination of Chocamine, a patented cocoa-based ingredient that provides sustained energy without jitters, alongside a blend of vitamins, taurine, L-Tyrosine, schizandra berry and green tea extract, Energy Chocolate offers an all day boost without the unpleasant side effects of many other types of energy supplements.
All of The Functional Chocolate Co.'s bars are made with Fair Trade 60% cacao from a cooperative of South American farmers. Crafted in the U.S., these bars are 100 percent plant-based, vegan, dairy-free, non-GMO, cholesterol and gluten-free.
"We're pleased to continue to expand our Functional Chocolate suite with these new products that address two of the most common complaints these days," said Nicole Smith, CEO, The Functional Chocolate Co. "Customers are increasingly seeking out new ways to treat everyday health realities. By pairing our fair trade, vegan chocolate with these well researched formulations, customers enjoy a convenient and decadent experience that delivers the benefits of nutraceutical wellness."
