Health Benefits

Almonds
Almonds are a good source of vitamin E, phosphorus and magnesium. Almonds naturally contain no Cholesterol, however are able to regulate cholesterol in our bodies by reducing LDL ('bad') cholesterol and increasing HDL ('good') cholesterol. The Ayurvedic system of medicine considers almonds to be both brain and nervous system supporting. Almonds have also been proven by various medical journals to have anti-inflammatory, immune boosting and liver supporting properties.

Brazil Nuts
Organic Raw Activated Brazil Nuts offers a good source of Omega 6, magnesium and is one of the highest dietary sources of selenium available. Selenium is a rare mineral, which is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Other selenoproteins help regulate thyroid function and play a role in the immune system.

Cashews
Cashews have a lower fat content than other nuts and approximately 75% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, with about 75% of this unsaturated fatty acid being oleic acid - the same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. Studies show that oleic acid promotes good cardiovascular health. Studies of diabetic patients show that monounsaturated fat, when added to a low-fat diet, can help to reduce high triglyceride levels.

Coconut
Almost half of the Coconut’s fatty acid profile consists of lauric acid. Apart from being associated with anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, studies have found lauric acid increases good cholesterol in the body.

Chia Seeds
Chia seeds contain 13% fat, of which 64% is ALA (a-linolenic acid), also known as Omega 3, which is critical for our body to function at optimum levels. It cannot be synthesized by the human body but is vital for normal metabolism.

Health Benefits

Raw Cacao Nibs:
Antioxidants

Research has demonstrated that the antioxidants in cacao are highly stable and easily available to human metabolism. In the adjacent table you can see that our Raw Cacao has set the world record for antioxidants when compared to the other top 10 antioxidant foods such as Goji Berries, Acai Berries, and blueberries. The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture to measure the ability of antioxidants to absorb free radicals, which normally cause cell and tissue damage. The higher the ORAC score, the higher the level of antioxidants present in the food.

Evaporated Coconut Nectar:
Our Evaporated Coconut Nectar is unfiltered and preservative free. It has a low on the Glycemic Index (GI) of 35. By comparison, most honeys are GI 55 and cane sugars are GI 68. The Glycemic Index provides a ranking for carbohydrates according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a low GI (less than 40), produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, avoiding the sugar “highs” and “lows” that we experience when consuming foods with high GIs.

Evaporated Coconut Nectar also has a nutritional and mineral content that is richer than all other commercially available sweeteners. When compared to brown sugar, Evaporated Coconut Nectar has twice the iron, four times the magnesium and over 10 times the amount of zinc.

Ingredients: Organic Raw Hazelnuts (30%), Organic Evaporated Coconut Nectar, Organic Raw Cold Pressed Coconut Oil, Organic Raw Cacao Nibs
