Our Pick For You: Chica Glow

We chose Chica Glow for you because you answered that you experience at least one, or more, of the following: acne, PMS headaches, PMS rage, disruptively long or heavy periods. All of these are symptoms of excessive damp heat in your system, which the additions of Gardenia fruit and Moutan Peony bark in Chica Glow help release. 

Chica Glow helps your body better manage stress, may support fertility, and can ease your transition into menopause.

I always get a few very painful cystic acne lesions around my time of the month (due) and I enjoyed these absolutely decadent chocolates Twice a Day for the past week and so far there's no sign of any acne and my skin feels great! (I'm almost looking forward to next month already! :D)

Amazing product! I really didn’t expect it to work as well as it did. I did not get a single occurrence of cystic acne during the first month of using Chica Glow. My period is fairly regular so I was able to consume the truffles as suggested. Looking forward to seeing ongoing results from monthly use.

Chica Chocolate is awesome! Because my cycle is irregular, I have to use signs when I’m about to start (compared to tracking). My number one clue is hormonal breakouts a week or so before menstruation. Chica Glow has totally helped mitigate that and keeps my skin feeling supple!

FAQ

for the readers
Why Chocolate?

Ever heard the stereotype about people craving chocolate when they’re on their period? Well, there is a reason for that. First, chocolate literally makes you happy (endorphins, get at me!) second, the high magnesium content in dark chocolate does all kinds of good things for your body, including easing PMS symptoms in many people and increasing energy.*

We believe that eating delicious, sustainably sourced organic chocolate is simply a great way to improve your day.

When do I eat Chica Glow?

If you are enjoying Chica Glow, we recommend opening your bag of twelve Chica truffles 7-10 days before you start your bleeding, and eating two truffles a day for six days in a row.

Using a period app is very helpful for tracking your cycle (we love Clue), and you can set a reminder on your app to let you know when to eat your Chica every month.

What if my period isn't predictable?

If you don’t know when you are going to start bleeding, or don’t bleed at the same time every month, it’s ok!

Do you have any signs that your period is coming? This can look like acne, bloating, or mood swings. Start eating Chica Glow when these signs appear.

If you don’t have any signs -Fortunately, nature has a built in cycle that you can follow. You can start eating Chica Glow on either the full moon or new moon every month. The herbs in Chica Glow will help to regulate your cycle, though this may take longer than two periods with Chica Glow to notice.

When will I notice a difference?

Many Chica Glow customers see a positive difference in their period by the first month! However, every body is different, and it may take you a few cycles to notice changes. 93% of existing Chica customers experienced a better period after their second month eating Chica.

We recommend you enjoy Chica consistently for at least three periods in a row.

Allow your body time to change, and enjoy delicious chocolate in the meantime.

Can I eat Chica Glow if I don't have a period?

We see you, non-bleeders. We know Chica is delicious, and you can’t help yourself. 

What if I am not bleeding due to birth control?

The herbs in Chica will help to nourish and support your underlying menstrual cycle, even while you are using a hormonal birth control that stops your bleeding. Eating Chica while on birth control can help your body to adjust back to its natural cycle more easily if you ever decide to stop using your hormonal birth control. Chica will not impact the effectiveness of your birth control.

What if I am pregnant or nursing?

Chica Glow is not recommended for anyone currently pregnant due to the strong warming and blood invigorating herbs in our formula.

Chica Glow is safe to eat while nursing if you are having your period again. If your period has not returned on its own, your body does not yet need the herbs.

Please consult a licensed physician or practitioner if you are concerned about Chica’s effect on your health.

Can men eat Chica Glow?

Short answer: Yes!

The herbs in Chica Glow help release Liver Qi stagnation, which can help relieve frequent frustration and mood swings.*

However, if you are enjoying Chica Glow for your own period, we recommend keeping Chica to yourself so that you can enjoy all those period-loving herbs your body craves.

Is Dong Quai bad for Endometriosis?

Dong Quai is one herb in the Chica Glow formula that is known to increase blood circulation.

This increase has been considered bad for endometriosis, due to fear that this will cause the endometrial tissue to further spread and become aggravated. However, Dong Quai actually introduces fresh blood to your uterine system, allowing your body to naturally cleanse by removing excess tissue growth, healing tissue damage, and limiting the formation of scar tissue. Encouraging this circulation is considered to be supportive for reducing pain and inflammation for those with endometriosis.*

We have many customers with endometriosis who report a positive experience with Chica Glow. However, always listen to your own body, and stop eating Chica Glow immediately if you do not like how your body feels.

If you have any hesitations around any of the herbs in Chica, we encourage you to consult with your herbal or medical practitioner.

Is there marijuana in Chica?

Nope. Nada. Zilch.
