Honest Energy™

What is Honest Energy™

The natural energy boost you get with a cup of Crio Bru comes honestly, without the discomfort or even harmful effects you may experience with caffeine. Our superior coffee alternative is made with 100% Fair Trade cacao beans, roasted and ground using a proprietary process that preserves many of its plentiful health benefits.
Cocoa contains little to no caffeine; instead it has theobromine, a natural and gentle stimulant relative to caffeine. Unlike caffeine – which is harsh with a spike and following crash – theobromine works with your body, not against it, giving you a mild, long-lasting lift without making you feel nervous or jittery.
Cacao is 100% gluten free, dairy free, cholesterol free, soy free, sodium free and sugar free. It’s one of nature’s most amazing superfoods, providing not only natural energy, but high antioxidant value, mineral benefits and more*.


Boosts Your Immune System

Cacao contains the highest concentration of antioxidants of any food in the world; by weight it has more antioxidants than red wine, blueberries, açai, pomegranates, and goji berries combined!

Promotes Weight Loss

Low in calories, fat and carbs – and with theobromine as a natural appetite suppressant – cacao is the superfood that helps curb your appetite while promoting weight loss and healthy living.

Rich in Magnesium and Other Minerals

Cacao has high levels of magnesium, zinc, and other minerals supporting the heart, aiding digestion, building strong bones and healthy blood.

Supports Brain and Body Chemistry

Cacao is abundant in chemicals produced by the body but rarely found in most foods:

  • Anadamide, an endorphin or “bliss chemical” produced after exercise
  • Phenylethylamine for increased focus and alertness
  • Serotonin, a primary neurotransmitter that helps build a “stress defense shield”
  • Tryptophan, an amino acid that enhances relaxation and promotes better sleep
