CocoCardio Review and Giveaway!

As I get older, I'm realizing how important it is to stay healthy. I think supplements can be a great way to help you stay healthy. I recently discovered iHerb, an online vitamins and natural products retailer. They carry over 1,000 different brands and over 25,000 products. IHerb is also the sole distributor for Madre Labs.

I was asked to review Madre Labs CocoCardio. CocoCardio is a premium, 100% natural dark cocoa beverage enriched with freeze-dried beet juice powder and hibiscus extract. It's main purpose is to support cardiovascular health and free radical scavenging. You can learn more about how cocoa, beets, and hibiscus extract may help support cardiovascular health on iHerb.
I'd never heard of CocoCardio before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. CocoCardio comes in a stay-fresh resealable bag and includes a scoop. It looks like regular cocoa powder, but I thought it smelled like raisins. I followed the directions and mixed a scoop with 8 oz of hot water. When mixed with the water, CocoCardio is a deep reddish brown. I expected it to taste bitter, since the package says it's naturally bitter, but I was surprised to find it wasn't. It didn't taste bad but it also didn't have much flavor. The package also mentions that you can use natural sweeteners to flavor it. I didn't have any natural sweeteners, so I used two packets of Splenda, and it really helped bring out the nice Cocoa flavor. For being healthy AND having beet juice powder in it, CocoCardio actually taste pretty good. I also like that CocoCardio only has 20 calories per serving, so it can also be a nice chocolaty treat that won't wreck your diet.

One lucky Mommy Loves Giveaways reader will win a CocoCardio AND a $25 shopping spree to iHerb!!!!

Where to buy: iHerb is the sole distributor for Madre Labs. You can purchase CocoCardio on iHerb and use the coupon code: WOW123 to get $5 off!

To Win:
Mandatory entry: Follow Mommy Loves Giveaways publicly on Google Friend Connect, and leave a comment with your name and email.
