"Finally... A Decadent Treat Without the Guilt"
When you want to indulge, but want to limit unhealthy carbs,
what's left? This guilt-free, energy boost is perfect for travel, after school,
or just an afternoon pick-me-up. And best of all?
Your taste buds will be humming...
HEALTH BOMB #1: High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) has become a modern-day plague. Not only does it contribute to our obesity epidemic, but it has also been linked to diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
Sadly, the average consumption of fructose has doubled between 1980 and 1994. Soft drinks and some fruit drinks are a major source of HFCS, but it is also found in many other products, from crackers to salad dressing.
Fructose contains zero enzymes, vitamins or minerals — and it leaches micronutrients from your body. It doesn't metabolize the same as sugar and because it's often consumed as a liquid, it's negative effects are multiplied.
Why is it found in so many products? Because, after air, water, and salt, it's the cheapest ingredient in the American food chain (and we know how the food industry likes to save money…)
I'd also urge you to be on the lookout for HFCS in its many "disguises" — conveniently (for the food industry) labeled as chicory, inulin, iso glucose, glucose-fructose syrup, fruit fructose, and others.
Another major "health torpedo" you want to watch out for is…
HEALTH BOMB #2: Gluten — Wheat (and other grains containing gluten) is NOT your friend. My experience has shown that you could well be one of the estimated 1 in 10 people who have at least a subclinical intolerance to gluten protein. This is actually a food allergy.
I recommend avoiding gluten, even the organic whole-grain types.
Gluten intolerance has been linked to miscarriage, intestinal disease (including irritable bowel syndrome), malnutrition, rheumatoid arthritis, and developmental delay in children, just to name a few. Oftentimes, your gluten sensitivity may present with various unexplained symptoms.
Getting rid of these two health bombs will go a long way toward improving your health.
For Busy People: Is This the World's Most
Convenient and Health-Promoting Snack?
Even those with the best diet enjoy an occasional treat. The problem is that truly health-promoting treats and snacks are very hard to find.
That is why my team and I have formulated one of the most delicious, health-promoting, lower-guilt energy bar imaginable!
And they are shockingly better than any bar I've ever featured on Mercola.com. In my opinion, at least ten times better!
Before I tell you all about my new and improved bar, let me first explain how most energy bars may actually hurt your health rather than help it…
Does that Energy or Protein Bar You're Eating
Really Support Your Health?
If you're like me, you lead a busy life and can't always sit down to enjoy a healthy and relaxing meal three times a day.
Or maybe you just need a quick pick-me-up after your workout… or during that afternoon slump.
At times like these, you grab what's convenient. And today what a lot of people tend to grab are energy or protein bars. They're quick, easy, and an inexpensive and healthy snack, right?
I understand how you've been led to believe this, but here's the problem. With so many energy and protein bars available on the market today, it can be hard to determine which bars are best for you and your family.
What's more, many of these bars are so loaded with less-than-optimal fats and sugars, in my opinion, they aren't much better than eating a candy bar.
And, as you know, bad fats and sugars can have a detrimental effect on your body - and may lead you to actually gain weight and stress your cardiovascular and endocrine systems!
Unfortunately, you can't even rely on those bars' labels to help you make good choices.
The marketing of energy bars is very intentional and very slick - and quite often misleading. The industry spends millions of dollars every year in advertising. They desperately want you to think their bar is best so you'll buy it.
In a perfect world, I would advise you to forget about energy bars and just stick with healthy foods such as vegetables. That's still the best policy to follow most of the time, whenever you can.
But I agree… it's not always practical - or realistic.
Introducing the New and Improved Organic Cocoa Cassava Bar
Imagine this: a health-promoting bar that tastes like the leading coconut candy bar we all know. Moist, chewy organic coconut sprinkled with superfood chia and covered with deep, smooth organic dark chocolate. Rich in fiber and protein, with just a touch of natural sweetening.
And best of all… absolutely, no soy or soy lecithin, corn syrup, salt, artificial flavors, colors, hydrolyzed milk protein, or chemical preservatives.
Instead, just all-natural goodness with some of the highest quality ingredients on earth to give you that quick pick-me-up when you need it most! Unlike so many other bars, it's loaded with a smart balance of health-promoting protein, fats and fiber that truly promote optimal health.
To top it off, ALL of the ingredients have been certified USDA organic!
I've just described to you my brand new Organic Cocoa Cassava Bar…
And because these energy bars are actually good for you, you too can indulge with less guilt. After all, who ever thought an energy bar could taste this good?
However… this new bar didn't happen overnight.
Over Three Dozen Recipe Variations Later, the Perfect Energy Bar Emerges
My previous Cocoa Cassava Bar was very popular and one of the top products on Mercola.com. Frankly, I knew we could do better. Because energy bars play such an important role in so many people's diets, I am very serious about offering a bar that contributes to good health rather than potentially damaging it.
My team and I set out to develop the perfect energy bar. Of course, it had to be at least as healthy as the previous Cocoa Cassava Bar. But most of all, it needed to be far superior in taste. In my opinion, when you eat an energy bar, it must taste as good as it is good for your health!
Some of the most important changes I wanted to make were to increase the protein, decrease the sugar, and change the sugar to a glucose polymer, which in my opinion is safer and better tolerated from a glycemic response and metabolic perspective.
Knowing you, too, would be discriminating, I demanded they include additional improvements in this new bar to meet the following requirements:
- Outstanding taste -- so you enjoy eating it!
- All-natural, organic ingredients to support optimal health
- Good source of fiber to support your digestive system
- High quality source of protein - without soy or dairy products
- Healthy fat source -for sustained energy and satiety
- No gluten, preservatives, or dangerous sulfites
- Consistent with my Take Control of Your Health Program
For the newest Organic Cocoa Cassava Bar, I've gone through over three dozen variations to bring you what I believe is the best-tasting and the most health-promoting bar on the market today!
I made sure my Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars supply you with real nutritional value and real taste.
I Take Sweeteners Seriously
Commonly found in many bars, you won't find any artificial sweeteners like Splenda™ (sucralose), or NutraSweet™ (aspartame), in Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars.
Nor will you find sugar alcohols, frequently added to bars to reduce the total calorie count because they have fewer calories than sugar itself.
Most importantly… you won't find high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) typically found in energy bars.
Why is this so bad?
The number one source of calories in the American diet is from HFCS.
In my opinion, HFCS is truly the villain of sugars. A chemically-converted, unnatural corn-based sweetener, HFCS can have negative effects on your health. HFCS is positively linked to obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
When you understand how HFCS affects your body, you can appreciate how destructive this substance truly is.
HFCS does NOT metabolize in the same way sugar does. It is a highly processed product that contains similar amounts of unbound fructose and glucose. Since HFCS is usually consumed in liquid form, its negative metabolic effects are significantly magnified.
Whereas the glucose in other sugars is used by your body, and is converted to blood glucose, the fructose from HFCS is a relatively unregulated source of fuel that your liver converts to fat and cholesterol.
Over 35 years of solid evidence indicates high-fructose corn syrup metabolizes to triglycerides and adipose tissue, not blood glucose. Because fructose does not stimulate your insulin secretion or leptin production (for appetite control), the signal for you to stop eating simply isn't there.
The result? Increased food intake and weight gain.
The only sweetener added to Organic Cocoa Cassava Bar is tapioca or Cassava syrup, a natural carbohydrate source.
All-Natural Ingredients Make Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars Delicious, While Promoting Good Health
What makes Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars so delicious?
You won't find these bars anywhere else-they are exclusive to Mercola.com.
It's because only the finest natural organic ingredients are used, from the very best reputable sources.
You'll find that the high quality organic coconut I selected adds a delicious tropical flair, while enhancing the texture and fiber content.
The coconut's medium shred preserves the delicate flavor and moistness from its natural organic oils.
And be assured… there are no dangerous sulfites or preservatives added to this organic coconut!
I Left the Gluten Out of Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars
Just as important as what you will find in the new Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars is what you won't find in them.
You won't find any monosodium glutamate. MSG, or glutamic acid, is often used as a flavor enhancer, despite the possible adverse reactions associated with it.
You won't find any genetically modified ingredients, polyunsaturated oils or preservatives in Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars either.
You won't find any gluten, which many people are highly sensitive to.
Instead, you'll find natural cassava flour.
Cassava (also known as tapioca, yuca, and manioc root) is an edible starch and a major source of carbohydrates.
Used as a major staple food for many South American tribes since Pre-Columbian times, I recommend cassava flour over wheat flour.
While wheat flour is typically refined, bleached and stripped of nutrients, Cassava supplies calcium.
And Cassava syrup provides just a hint of all-natural sweetness to give our bar a delicious, slightly sweet taste. At the same time, it provides moistness and helps preserve shelf life.
I Just Had to Add THIS Heart-Healthy, Gut-Supporting,
Low Glycemic Superfood!
As the latest scientific research confirms the outstanding benefits of chia, I decided to include organic raw chia seeds in my Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars.* Not only do chia seeds add a delightful crunch to the bar, they are a good source of fiber!
The exclusive mix of white and black chia seeds - as they exist in nature - provide the full balanced benefits of chia. This nutritionally dense chia provides:
- Omega 3 fatty acids to support healthy heart function, healthy cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range, and help maintain healthy blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range
- Good level of insoluble fiber to help scrub your colon of debris and toxins, easing occasional discomfort
- Good level of soluble fiber to slow digestion for better absorption of nutrients, and to help support healthy blood sugar levels that are already within the normal range, while helping you feel comfortably full for hours with fewer calories
- Rich source of magnesium and calcium to promote a healthy heart and healthy blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range, while supporting bone formation, nerve, and muscle relaxation
- Complete vegetable protein providing essential amino acids needed to build muscle!
And next… the perfect bar wouldn't be complete without chocolate, right?
I Added Not Just One Source of Rich Dark Chocolate… But TWO!
Most everyone loves chocolate--especially high quality dark chocolate. This chocolate is so rich that it literally melts in your mouth.
But it's not just the taste. Natural cacao teems with wholesome health benefits too. Chocolate…
- Provides one of the richest sources of free radical-fighting antioxidants
- Contains valuable micronutrients magnesium, zinc, iron, and potassium
- Helps promote healthy cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range
- Supports vascular health by helping to relax blood vessels
- Contains flavanols which support healthy brain function and positive mental outlook
Since chocolate offers so many natural health benefits, we added not just one source of chocolate, but two.
Our Organic Cocoa Cassava Bar contains both organic dark chocolate with 56 percent cacao and organic raw cacao powder.
And even better… our raw cacao powder contains no alkalizing agents or added synthetic sweeteners. Our rich dark chocolate coating contains one-fifth of a teaspoon of sugar!
The Healthiest Nut Around…
You also won't find unhealthy soy proteins in my Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars.
Many energy bars on the market contain soy protein. And today's cheap soy protein, largely waste products of the soy oil industry, is often over-processed with high heat that destroys the nutritional value of the protein. As you know, I advise avoiding soy for many other reasons as well.
Instead, I chose raw, organic almond butter to compliment the organic chia seeds for a high quality source of protein for the bar.
Considered the most nutritious of nuts, raw organic almonds contain the right kind of fats - mostly monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. So, they help maintain healthy cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.
Phytochemicals in almonds are plant substances that promote heart and vascular health.*
Almonds are a good source of fiber.
Some people avoid nuts because they believe they're fattening.
But did you know… eaten in moderation, almonds are not only one of the better health-promoting foods around, but they do a great job of making you feel full.
So, you will likely want to eat less when you sit down to a meal.
I've added raw, organic almond butter to my Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars for a heart-healthy source of protein, fat and all the other goodness of almonds. Almond butter gives you fast and long-lasting energy and satisfying fullness so you are less likely to overeat.
You'll Feel Satisfied for Hours with My New Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars
What truly sets these bars apart from all the others are their "staying power." Isn't that why you eat an energy bar in the first place? You want a fast burst of energy, but you want to feel energized and satisfied for hours.
My new Organic Cocoa Cassava Bar is 20% lower in carbohydrates, and 250% higher in fiber than the previous version!
Soluble fiber, like that from chia, may help increase intestinal transit time, delay gastric emptying, and promote a slower rate of glucose absorption. This is exactly what you want if you're eating for optimum health.
You not only feel comfortably full for hours, but you're also supporting healthy blood glucose levels that are already within the normal range.
This combination of health-promoting fiber, high quality proteins, and the right kind of good fats and carbohydrates create the perfect formula for fast, but sustained energy, and a sense of lasting satiety.
How Do Organic Cocoa Cassava Bars Stack Up Against Other Energy Bars?
The Organic Cocoa Cassava Bar is a nutritious choice with a perfect balance of smarter fats, protein, and fiber that will truly nourish your body and support your health. Plus it tastes delicious!
I'm proud to announce that my Organic Cocoa Cassava™ Bars are USDA certified organic. This is the highest level of certification you can get! And, naturally, all ingredients are allergy-free and non-GMO, so you know you are getting the finest.
