In its raw form, chocolate contains anandamide (a euphoric substance), arginine (a natural aphrodisiac), and tryptophan (a natural antidepressant). By raising the neurotransmitters in our brain, chocolate promotes an overall feeling of well-being. In essence, raw chocolate makes you happy!
Pumpkin Seed Kernels - Organic Raw
Pumpkin seeds are a delicious, nutritious and popular seed that have been celebrated as far back as 1300 AD when utilized by the ancient Aztecs. They were used as a food and traditional medicine in many Native American tribes and South America, where they were referred to as “pepita de calaba za” meaning “little seed of squash”. Over time, they became popular in North America, Europe, and the Mediterranean. They have even traveled the globe as far as Asia where they are used today as an alternative medicine. Here in the United States, pumpkins are grown for commercial consumption in nearly every state and over 100,000 acres of farmland.
Sun Dried White Mulberries - Organic
White mulberries (non-GMO) are a natural source of resveratrol which is found primarily in red wine. Mulberry fruits and leaves also contain a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, and other important nutrients. Mulberry extract contains moranoline, which may delay the absorption of carbohydrates and may support healthy glucose levels already within normal range. The anthocyanins in Mulberry are strong antioxidants and may support a healthy cardiovascular system, immune system response and a healthy stress response.
Sun Dried Goji Berries - Organic
For thousands of years, organic goji berry (Lycium Barbarum) has been revered for its staggering array of possible health supporting qualities and has been traditionally used as a wholesome food that may aid in the overall strengthening of the human body. Science has shown that this bright red berry not only contains extremely high levels of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals but also has many unique phytonutrients, polysaccharides, and complex compounds that scientists are just beginning to understand.
The dried non-GMO goji berry is a relative of the tomato and a natural source of lycopene. It has been called the world's most powerful anti-aging food. Goji berry juice is one of the highest rated foods on the ORAC scale (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity). The ORAC scale is a test developed by USDA researchers out of Tufts University in Boston, that measures the antioxidant level in foods. Goji berries possess an unmatched ability to absorb free radicals that attack the body, contributing to the aging process. 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 toxins cause.
Cashews - Organic, Whole, Raw
Cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts, approximately 75% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, plus about 75% of this unsaturated fatty acid content is oleic acid, the same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. Studies show that oleic acid promotes good cardiovascular health, even in individuals with diabetes. Studies of diabetic patients show that monounsaturated fat, when added to a low-fat diet, can help to reduce high triglyceride levels. Triglycerides are a form in which fats are carried in the blood, and high triglyceride levels are associated with an increased risk for heart disease, so ensuring you have some monounsaturated fats in your diet enjoying cashews is a good idea.
Cashews are a source of magnesium. Magnesium may possibly support healthy blood pressure levels and is an important mineral for diabetics because it may support healthy insulin levels. Studies have also shown that people who have low magnesium levels are at higher risk of heart disease. Like calcium, magnesium plays an important role in building and maintaining bone health.
Sun Dried Golden Berries - Organic
The Goldenberry is considered a good source of vitamin P (bioflavonoids) and is rich in pectin. Hundreds of studies on bioflavonoids have shown that they possess antiviral, anti-carcinogenic, antihistamine and antioxidant activities. Golden Berries make a delicious, tart and highly nutritious and exotic "raisin." They are high in phosphorous, vitamins A, C, B1, B2, B6, and B12. They are also extremely high in protein (16%) for a fruit.
