Despite their name, our Moon Bites aren't from outer space. We created them using science-backed nutrition protocols to help real, bleeding humans–like you–have happier periods.
1. Seed Syncing
Moon Bites are based on a functional nutrition protocol called seed syncing that involves eating certain combinations of seeds, in specific quantities, at different stages of your menstrual cycle. Seed syncing supports your body's natural ability to modulate sex hormone production and elimination, which has been thrown off for many women because of prolonged use of hormonal birth control, overexposure to environmental toxins, and the poor nutrition content of our foods (all that low-calorie, processed crap!).
2. Phases of the Menstrual Cycle
Your menstrual cycle runs on a continuous loop from your first period until you hit menopause, only interrupted by a little baby-making (bada bing, bada boom).
It has two phases: the follicular phase (I) and the luteal phase (II). The follicular phase, characterized by a spike in estrogen, runs from the first day of your period until ovulation (days 1-14); progesterone spikes and estrogen falls during the luteal phase, which begins at ovulation and continues until your next period (days 15-28).
Seed syncing, and in turn, the ingredients in our Moon Bites directly correlate to these phases and assist your body in maintaining optimal hormonal levels throughout your cycle.
3. Moon Bite Anatomy
What makes these energy bites so powerful? Four seeds.
|Raw Pumpkin Seeds||The lean, green machines are zinc powerhouses–a building block of progesterone. Studies have shown zinc reduces PMS, contributes to a healthy pregnancy, and relieves menopause-related ails.|
|Raw Flax Seeds||
Lignans (powerful cancer fighters!) are found in the hull of flax seeds. When ground and consumed, lignans have phytohormone activity, which helps eliminate excess estrogen from the system. A lot of the crazy period symptoms we experience are related to estrogen dominance.
|Raw Sunflower Seeds||
Selenium is the active ingredient in sunflower seeds, which helps in liver detoxification. The liver plays an important role in how the body disposes of excess hormones. Selenium is also an essential component of a healthy reproductive system.
|Raw Sesame Seeds||Similar to flax seed, lignans are found in the hull of sesame seeds. When ground and consumed, they similarly eliminate excess estrogen during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle when progesterone is predominant.|
Our Moon Bites are simply healthy vehicles for these seeds to enter your body and work their magic on your menstrual cycle. For that reason, we only use six natural ingredients–one's that you can pronounce–in each Moon Bite.
4. Food Period Protocol
Patience, young grasshopper. Natural solutions aren't an overnight fix, they often involve adopting a new (and in this case, delicious) habit.
Our protocol recommends women eat one package (40g) of Moon Bites daily for a minimum of three months to see a sustained improvement. We've noticed that women that already eat healthily, exercise regularly, and manage stress well, often see results sooner. With that said, if you're struggling with a tough case of PCOS or endometriosis, you may need to be more patient with your body.
5. Say 'No' To Suffering
Periods aren't supposed to be unbearable. In fact, a healthy, regular period without extreme symptoms is one of the best non-invasive indicators of your internal health. It's also a pretty accurate predictor of future fertility.
Gone are the days when your only option for solving hormonal problems was using the birth control pill. You now have functional foods for your flow!
