Zenberry Cocoa Berry is a chocolate superfood protein powder that focuses on the amazing power of fruit. We use a unique blend of organic fruit to maximize the antioxidants and help your body fight free-radical damage which is increased by pollution, diet, stress and even exercise. Zenberry Cocoa Berry starts with raw organic vegan protein blend (hemp & pea) and then adds powerful superfoods like raw cacao, maca, lucuma and mesquite for balanced flavor, powerful nutrients, plant-based protein and fiber. As always, there is no added sugar, fillers, chemicals or soy. It is great for pre or post workout meals and a favorite with the Zenberry cycling team.

A synergy of raw organic pea and hemp protein. This fusion creates a unique, raw, plant-based protein with a complete amino acid profile which is high in branch chain amino acids (BCAAs). It is an easily digestible and nutrient-dense superfood base.
Pea Protein: A high fiber, low calorie, nutrient dense vegetarian SUPERFOOD, Peas are also a remarkable source of plant-based proteins and amino acids. Protein from peas satisfies all FAO essential amino acid requirements. The amino acids found in peas include Lysine, Arginine, Glutamine, Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine (Branched Chain Amino Acids – BCAAs)
Hemp Protein: Hemp seed is a complete protein source and the only food capable of sustaining life in the absence of other foods. It has a high concentration of omegs 3 and omega 6 fatty acids in the favorable 1:3 ratio. Hemp protein is absorbed faster than any other plant-based protein.

Chocolate! Yes, in its natural form. We add a healthy amount of raw, organic cacao powder. Raw cacao is one of nature’s most powerful superfoods with one of the highest levels of antioxidants on earth! More than blue berries, acai, pomegranates or goji berries combined! Specific antioxidants like polyphenols, catechins and epicatechins help to fight off free radicals, giving you a healthy, complete superfood known as the Food of the Gods. In addition, flavonols help the body produce Nitric Oxide, a compound essential for proper heart function. Free of chemicals, hexane and solvents, our cacao powder offers a powerful boost of phenylethylamine (PEA) and anandamide, which both enhance positive feelings (Love). It is also the #1 source of magnesium of any food as well as high levels of iron, zinc, manganese, copper, tryptophan, and serotonin. Our certified organic cacao powder is created from beautiful, clean, microbe-free 100% Arriba Nacional Fino de Aroma Pure Cacao Beans from Ecuador and is prepared by cold-pressing the beans to yield a decadent, antioxidant-rich powder and to separate the oil from the fiber.
For endurance and energy we added raw organic maca root powder. Maca is a member of the cruciferous family of plants. It is a distant relative of the common radish. It is grown high in the Andes between 11,000 and 14,000ft and its nutritional qualities come from having to survive in such a harsh environment. Maca's reputation as a powerful strength and stamina enhancer as well as libido-enhancing food-herb stretches back into prehistory. Maca, like goji berries and ginseng, is a powerful adaptogen, which means it has the ability to balance and stabilize the body's systems (cardiovascular system, nervous system, musculature, lymphatic system, etc.). Rich in calcium, magnesium,phosphorous, potassium, sulfur and iron, and containing trace minerals, such as zinc, copper, selenium, manganese and silica.
A popular fruit grown in the Andes. It has a rich, sweet, maple flavor (it is the #1 ice cream flavor in Peru) and is a great source of fiber, beta carotene, iron and niacin (B3). We add this to help balance the flavor of our mix while still adding nutrients.
Mesquite powder comes from grinding the ripe seed pods of the mesquite tree into a fine powder. It was a food staple of Native Americans who lived in the desert regions of North America. High in protein, a good course of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc. It is also rich in the amino acid lysine. Mesquite has a sweet, rich molasses like flavor with a hint of caramel.
Himalayan Pink Salt
Every ingredient in Zenberry has been well thought out and must provide a nutritional benefit, as well as, good taste. This even includes our salt. We chose Himalayan Pink salt because it has a rich mineral content that includes over 84 minerals and trace elements such as: calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron. This salt is recognized for its beautiful pink color, high mineral content, and its therapeutic properties. Regular consumption of Himalayan Pink Salt provides essential minerals, trace elements, balances electrolytes, supports proper nutrient absorption, eliminates toxins, balances the body’s pH, normalizes blood pressure, and increases circulation and conductivity.
