iHerb-Madre Labs Cocoa Cardio Blend

iHerb is an online retailer who specializes in vitamins and natural products. Currently, they carry over 1,000 different brands and over 25,000 products.  iHerb is also the sole distributor for Madre Labs.  They are the manufacturer of Cocoa Cardio, as well as lots of other "super foods" and products to keep our bodies healthy.   I was sent over a package of the Cocoa Cardio to try out and see what I thought.



CocoCardio is a premium, 100% natural/organic (non-alkalized) dark cocoa beverage enriched with freeze-dried beet juice powder. Its main purpose is to support cardiovascular health and free radical scavenging.  It includes cocoa, beets and hibiscus sabdariffa. 

Their certified organic natural (Non-alkalized) cocoa powder has been made to exacting standards. "Natural Process" Cocoa retains higher levels of naturally-occurring polyphenols compared to Alkalized (Dutch Process) Cocoa. NOTE: The more Polyphenols, the more Bitter - And it is Better!
It is very quick and easy to mix and a perfect drink for breakfast.  Although I still enjoy my coffee I have been drinking this as well and I have been feeling great.  I have a lot more energy in the mornings and I don't know if it has anything to do with the Cocoa Cardio, but the burn on my arm is healing VERY quickly.

To mix just get around 8oz. of warm to hot water.  Stir in a scoop of Cocoa Cardio and mix:
(It's a really small scoop so a little goes a long way)


Stir well!  


The first time I tried it, this was my face:
Haha!  It is very bitter, but semi thick (depending on the amount of water you add, and very filling).  With only 20 calories per serving, its fantastic.  But, I added some Agave Nectar to mine to sweeten it a little.

Just a little of this goes a long way.


Delicious!  It is very much like a glass of extrememly healthy hot chocolate, that still tastes good.  I think kids would be happy to drink this.  Especially if you mixed in a few marshmallows or some whipped cream.  Mmmmm!

You would make a great sales person. Loved the pics (bitter-then-sweet). I bet your husband was laughing when he took them. Natural products are growing in demand. You sold me on this one. I am going to check out their website. Love your blog, and keep up the good work.Tell your husband i said hi and I hope you are not working him to hard :)

There are a couple of things that look worth giving a shot. Hook a brotha up (or however the kids are saying it these days).
