Leah Nierman on Why Molly Sims Loves Moodygirl Chocolates

first_img“We have different chocolate bars for the different moods women experience, everything from sexy to anxious,” she notes.“Moodygirl has helped me to feel overall more balanced in my life. … We created the products for the active health-conscious woman and someone who cares about the ingredients they put into their body,” Nierman shares.And that includes A-listers. “Celebrities are naturally drawn to Moodygirl because they want to fuel their bodies with superfoods that make them feel good from within. … They recognize what they put into their bodies matters and affects the way they ultimately look, feel and perform.”As for what you can expect: “Most people generally see results within 15 to 30 minutes after eating the chocolate. … You can enjoy them every day and on-the-go or a few times a week — really whenever you are feeling you need a little boost or have a craving,” the founder says. – Advertisement – But just because her bars are filled with vitamins and adaptogens, doesn’t mean they’re any less tasty than your typical treat.“People think the chocolate might taste different since it’s infused with vitamins and adaptogens. However, you cannot taste the vitamins or adaptogens in the chocolate,” Nierman explains. Moodygirl is sweet and creamy tasting and has a grainy, cookie-like texture, similar to a Mexican chocolate, because everything down to the coconut sugar is minimally processed.”In addition to the delicious flavor, Nierman claims the chocolates helped with cramps, mood swings and hormonal headaches, which inspired her to take her original recipe (found in the For That Time of the Month flavor) and expand it to include a Chill Out bar, a Libido Lover bar and a Moody Matcha bar launching this winter.Moody GirlMoody Girl Alex Clark Photo- Advertisement – “Ever since I can remember, I’ve always had an intense craving for chocolate around that time of the month,” she tells Us Weekly exclusively.Instead of overindulging on the candy or attempting to cut it out completely, the Institute of Integrative Nutrition graduate took matters into her own hands and was inspired to make a guilt-free chocolate bar that could help women.“After what felt like a thousand batches, my mom and I came up with a base recipe containing only three ingredients including organic cacao, organic cacao butter and coconut sugar,” she says. “We added in magnesium and vitamin B6 to help support cramps and elevate mood. Our family and friends kept requesting more chocolate and Moodygirl was born.”Moody GirlMoody Girl Alex Clark Photo- Advertisement – Leah Nierman MoodygirlLeah Nierman Alex Clark PhotoYour chocolate bar cravings just got a healthy solution thanks to Moodygirl — the vegan, gluten free, vitamin and adaptogen-packed bars loved by Molly Sims, Olivia Culpo, Catt Sadler and more.Leah Nierman, founder of Moodygirl, was inspired to create the product line after experiencing her own personal chocolate addiction, which often led to feeling bloated and emotional after devouring the candy.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Adultery could kill you: study

first_imgNZ Herald 23 May 2012It is news likely to bring an ironic smile to the lips of many a scorned spouse – adultery is bad for the heart. Studies show men who cheat on their wives risk not only their marriage but also their cardiac health. Liaisons away from home and with younger women are particularly dangerous. The warnings come from Italian researchers who reviewed previous studies on the causes of infidelity and its effects. These showed “sudden coital death” was much more common when a man was meeting his mistress than when he was with his wife. The researchers can’t be sure why, but put forward a variety of reasons, including a guilty conscience. The review’s authors, from the University of Florence, began by scouring medical literature for research papers including the words “unfaithfulness”, “extramarital affairs”, “infidelity” and “men”.German studies show that most men who died during sex were having an affair and meeting away from the family home.The stress of wining, dining and satisfying a woman who is likely to be younger than the man’s wife may also be to blame, as can the strain of keeping an affair secret. Researcher Dr Alessandra Fisher said extra-martial sex could be more stressful because the lover is often younger than the wife and the sex tends to follow more excessive drinking and/or eating.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=10807829last_img read more

Powered by Firework In a heart-warming gesture, veteran shooter Abhinav Bindra along with three-time Olympic gold medallist Italy’s Niccolo Campriani hosted young refugee shooters to prepare them for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. This wonderful initiative saw the light in 2019 when Campriani decided to help these young shooters score the minimum qualifying points in order to participate in the Olympics this summer. The athletes will represent the Refugee Olympic team, which itself debuted four years ago in the 2016 Rio Games. Advertisement Photo Credit: tw/@camprianiLast year, Campriani launched this project and asked some of his friends to join the process, which included his former rival Abhinav Bindra. As of now, there are three refugees training hard in Campriani’s group, who took the trip to Bengaluru to practice under India’s sole Olympic gold medallist.Advertisement Speaking on this initiative, Bindra said that the project is unique because it transcends sport while bringing the world together.“Mahdi and Khaoula have been making great progress. I see more understanding of the sport. I see that they start feeling more things, and they are understanding the various elements of technique in a more effective manner. And they both seem very determined. I think more than anything, more than the performance aspect, I have seen a big change in them as human beings,” Bindra said. “The first time I saw them, they were quiet and very, very reserved, and I see a greater degree of confidence every time I meet them. Sport is helping them define their personalities in a little way and helping them become better human beings, helping them gain more self-confidence. And I think that is a great victory in itself” he told the Olympic Channel.Khaoula, who is competing in her first tournament this year under the ISSF Refugee Team Banner in the H&N Cup, scored her personal best of 606 and 612.3 in the first and second 10m Air Rifle event respectively.
