Our Dark Chocolate Covered Golden Berries are as amazing as they sound. Not only are they a sweet treat, but they pack a superfood 1-2 punch! Raw golden berries contain linoleic and oleic acid, two essential fatty acids that may support insulin sensitivity and fat oxidation. Compared to other berries, golden berries possess higher amounts of protein and Vitamin A. They're also lower in sugar and loaded with antioxidants. Today, our bodies are constantly bombarded with external sources of food and environmental toxins. Eating foods high in antioxidants is one way we can help our bodies to combat the damage these toxins cause. Golden berries also posses flavonoids, which are specific antioxidants that may support a healthy cardiovascular system and other bodily functions.

Now top that off with dark chocolate and you've got something really special. Cacao is appropriately coined as "the food of gods". With over 300 identifiable chemical compounds, chocolate remains one of the most complex and pleasurable foods on the planet. In its raw form, chocolate contains anandamide (a euphoric substance), arginine (a natural aphrodisiac), and tryptophan (a natural anti-depressant). By raising the neurotransmitters in our brain, chocolate promotes an overall feeling of well being. In essence, raw chocolate makes you happy!

  • May support cardiovascular health
