CocoCeps™ Premium Ingredients
CocoCeps™ is a Premium Organic, 100% Natural (Non-Alkalized) Dark Cocoa beverage enriched with a Full-Spectrum Blend of Micronized Cordyceps (Hybrid Strain) & Micronized Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) Mushrooms, making it one of the most adaptogenic natural hot cocoa beverages available. This Innovative Cocoa Blend from Madre Labs is the 1st to use MicroFungi™ -- Madre Labs' mushroom powders (specially processed via micronization, greatly reducing the particle size of our full-spectrum mushroom powders, and also assisting with nutrient bioavailability).
Cocoa (Theobroma cacao -- a.k.a "Food of the Gods") is one of the most popular, delicious and healthy beverages consumed worldwide. With close to 4000 years of rich history, Cocoa powder, prepared from roasted beans of the Theobroma cacao plant, was a precious ingredient in the Aztec and Mayan bitter, spicy drink — Xocolatl, from which the name chocolate is derived.
Cocoa contains naturally-occurring mild stimulants called methylxanthines. Theobromine is the predominant methylxanthine in Cocoa that is thought to contribute to the cardiovascular supportive and mood elevating properties ascribed to chocolate. Caffeine is another methylxanthine present in lesser amounts in cocoa that contributes to its energizing effect. Our polyphenol-rich, Certified Organic Natural (Non-alkalized) Cocoa Powder has been made to exacting standards, and works synergistically with our MicroFungi™ mushroom powders to help support: Cardiovascular Integrity, Healthy Energy Levels & Resistance to Fatigue.
Our Micronized Cordyceps (Cordyceps sinensis Hybrid Strain) is a potent tonic used for centuries in Tibetan and Chinese cultures to promote energy and longevity. It is a rare and highly valued fungus that grows in the high plains of Tibet -- Now available through modern cultivation techniques. Our Micronized Cordyceps is the only Certified Organic Full-Spectrum Micronized Cordyceps that is bio-identical genetically as well as in its analytical signature. Our cordyceps is cultivated through a proprietary/patented process using special growing chambers to replicate the conditions found in Nepal and Tibet at 18,000 feet (5400 meters) elevation. This low-temperature, low-oxygen cultivation process yields the most potent form of Cordyceps available.
Cordyceps has been included in this formula because of its Adaptogenic properties such as helping support: Healthy Energy Levels, Increased Endurance & Resistance to Stress/Fatigue.
Simply add 1 Packet to 6-8 ounces of hot liquid (e.g. purified water, milk, half & half, almond/rice/coconut milks...etc.) and stir, adding the desired amount of natural sweetener, such as a tablespoon of light agave nectar. (Please note that this product is naturally quite bitter due to its high polyphenol content, but may be used unsweetened if desired).

I couldn't get past the gross bitter taste even after i added 2 packets of sugar. I wouldn't touch the other packet with a ten feet pole.

CocoCeps tastes good. It isn't like regular hot chocolate but it is much healthier! This TASTY sample has been discontinued but you can buy the full size version of this product.

Special, Madre Labs, CocoCeps - Superior taste and aroma
Posted by Thoughtful-Reviews on Feb 08, 2014
Superior taste and aroma This coffee derived from mushrooms by Madre labs has superior taste and aroma. On top of that, it rides on the medicinal mushroom bandwagon. I liked that I got to sample this as freebie. What I will not like though is that when Madre Labs, like all its products, prices it at a premium. >>> To get more /Nuggets and Tips/ on products me and my family have actually bought and used... ...

After trying the free sample I was sent with a previous order, I didn't hesitate to order a full size package. It mixes well and tastes great, plus all the synergistic benefits of the mushrooms and cocoa together. Expensive, but recommended if you can afford it.
