Cocoa Energy Restore Review & Giveaway **Closed**

I have a great new company and supplement to tell you about today called Cocoa Energy Restore from CocoaWell. I am always the first one to be a little skeptical of supplements even though I do take certain ones like Fish Oil and others that I know are suppose to be good for me but how or when will you ever know? Well, the neat thing about this particular supplement is that it gives you energy, and you all know that I need as much energy as possible with Fibromyalgia. Fatigue is my one constant battle and I used to fight it alot but am more embracing of it now than I used to be. I know my limitations and I know when to stop now. Which really isn't a bad thing. I would rather be fatigued than be in pain any day!

Cocoa Energy Restore has three main stress reducing herbs in it and they are: Ashwagandha, Rhodiola and Schisandra. These are the properties of dark chcolate that are supposed to be energizing. It will do three things:

•Enhances energy and focus
•Boosts mental and physical performance
•Helps fight fatigue and exhaustion

Sounds great huh? Well, I can tell you that hubby is taking them and doing really pretty darn good on them! Now, see, I had gotten them for me, but I don't work, he does and he has had a constant struggle since his neck & back surgery. He was off for 3 months and when he went back at the end of January, it was very hard on him. He had gotten used to sleeping anytime he wanted and resting whenever he felt the need. So, the first couple of weeks had been draining on him and when these came, I felt so guilty, that I am letting him try them instead. I did take them for about 5 days and I have to tell you it did give me a boost but when Mike came home and said he was making it better at work and it was starting to ease up on him, I decided to let him finish the bottle. Like I said, he works and I don't. I can take a nap when I need to and he can't.

So, in short, if you need just a little help every now and then, this would be worth trying. But please, if you have any heart problems or nervous anxiety, please check with your doctor first. I also have Hypothyroidism which is another reason I am tired alot on top of the Fibromyalgia. But I also have rapid palpitations and take meds for that. I did not experience any rapid heart beats while I took this but still, I would just check to be safe. I don't want anyone to hurt themselves based on what I say alone. I don't care who tells you how good something is, always check with your doctor before you take something new, please!

Here is what CocoaWell says about their products:
Our formulas are enhanced with Pure Plant Flavanol Complex, an exclusive blend of plant sources that deliver the incredible health benefits of flavanols such as catechin, epicatechin and EGCG. These potent polyphenols are among the most researched of all phytonutrients and support heart, brain, immunity and energy.
CocoaWell has 2 other products besides the one that I got to try and they are Cocoa Heart COQ10 and then just Cocoa. Both offer heart benefits along with your energy levels and much more. I never realized that dark chocolate could do so many things so I will look into these other two as well. More than likely, hubby is gonna want to get more of the Restore because he said it does give him that little extra lift in the afternoon when he says is the worst time for him. That and work has changed their hours and they will be going in 30 minutes earlier and getting off now at 4:00 instead of 4:30. He is really more of a morning person than me so hopefully between the Restore and leaving 30 minutes early will help him weather this fatigue he has been feeling in the afternoons.

Here is what I found under the About Us:
Following centuries of tradition, indigenous people off the coast of Panama drink up to 40 cups of fresh cocoa per week and experience incred­ible health benefits. According to Harvard studies, they experi­ence 1/9 the rate of heart disease and 1/16 the rate of other age-related illnesses as thei neighbors on the mainland.

Inspired by their coveted health practices, we developed a proprietary, innovative method to deliver the health benefits of fresh, organic cocoa in a two-capsule serving, without the calories and sugar associated with dark chocolate. Introducing CocoaWell™: Guided by the customs of a culture devoted to cocoa, dedicated to a higher quality of life.

A recent study published in the Chemistry Central Journal has demonstrated that cocoa contains more antioxidants than other renowned superfruits like acai, blueberry, cranberry, and pomegranate. Research conducted by Norman Hollenberg at Harvard University has documented that the Kuna Indians, who live on the San Blas islands off the coast of Panama, have 1/9 the incidence of heart attack, stroke, diabetes and cancer. They consume more cocoa than any other people in the world — up to 6 cups/day or 40 cups/week.

There is so much more I could tell you about but here is a link to Our Experts who are the doctors and people behind CocoaWell and a little bit about their background. I think once you read this you will feel more confident about CocoaWell and how safe it really is. They put alot of thought into the making of their products.
