Instead of settling for popular candy bars or energy bars, Dr. Joseph Mercola recommends a healthy alternative: Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars.
Similar energy bar products on the market have been found to promote less-than-optimal health primarily because of three ingredients:
- High-fructose corn syrup (HCFS) – Rich in fructose, which does not have any nutritional value. It only works against your benefit by leeching micronutrients from your body.
- Gluten – This is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley that can trigger an allergic reaction called gluten intolerance and damage your small intestines.
- Artificial sweeteners (such as aspartame and Splenda) – Regardless of their zero calorie content, artificial sweeteners are found to be related to degenerative diseases and neurological afflictions.
Additionally, each of these contribute to the obesity epidemic in the United States and has links to serious health conditions like diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
Organic Cocoa Cassava – Your Healthy Snack Alternative
Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars contain all-natural ingredients that do not only provide positive effects for your body, but also make for great-tasting snacks. Cocoa Cassava Bars are known to:
- Support your digestive system with their abundant amounts of fiber
- Sustain your energy and promote satiety with their healthy fat source
- Provide you a quality source of protein – without soy or dairy products
- Contain no gluten, preservatives, or other synthetic substances
Cocoa Cassava Bars’ All-Natural Ingredients
It’s a guarantee that there are no ingredients in Cocoa Cassava Bars that will put your health at risk. Only the finest natural organic ingredients are used and obtained from the best reputable sources. These are:
Natural Cassava Flour
Instead of monosodium glutamate (MSG) or glutamic acid – both acting as flavor enhancers – Cocoa Cassava Bars only have natural flavors and sweeteners. This delicious snack bar owes its taste and moistness to cassava syrup.
Unlike wheat flour that is refined and stripped of nutrients, cassava provides calcium. Cassava is also a good source of healthy carbohydrates.
Natural and Raw Cacao
Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars have organic dark chocolate with 56 percent cacao and organic raw cacao powder, as opposed to regular milk chocolate that is often processed. According to studies, organic and unprocessed chocolate contains antioxidant properties and helps fight free radical damage.
It can also support brain function – thanks to flavonols – and helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range. An additional benefit of raw cacao is support for vascular health.
Organic Raw Chia Seeds
Organic raw chia seeds add a delightful crunch to Cocoa Cassava Bars. With an exclusive mix of white and black chia seeds, you can receive:
- Omega-3 fatty acids – for your heart function, cholesterol level management, and healthy blood pressure levels
- Insoluble fiber – for colon cleansing and ease of occasional discomfort
- Soluble fiber – for nutrient absorption support and regulation of blood sugar levels
- Magnesium and calcium – for a healthy heart, blood pressure levels, bone formation, nerve and muscle relaxation
- Vegetable protein – for muscle development
Raw Organic Almond Butter
Cocoa Cassava Bars contain no soy protein or soy products. To complement the raw chia seeds, this energy bar contains raw, organic almond butter. It contains fats such as monosaturated and polysaturated fats that are beneficial for your cholesterol levels.
Almonds also have phytochemicals that contribute to better cardiovascular health, and fiber for better digestion.
