Benefits Of Ingredients

Hemp seeds contain ALL of the essential amino acids! This makes them an excellent plant-based source of protein and for use in protein powders. For vegans, vegetarians, paleo-dieters and really for anyone, hemp seeds are a superior form of protein. They have the most concentrated balance of enzymes, fatty acids and vitamins of any seed.
Hemp seeds are a rich source of essential fatty acids. According to Dr. Mercola, they contain more of these fatty acids than any fish and most fish oil supplements. Essential fatty acids are important for battling inflammation, improving brain health and function, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, reducing risk of heart disease and also maintaining high energy levels.
One cup of almonds contains 38% of your daily calcium need. Almonds are also natural pain relievers, full of healthy fats and protein; they may also reduce risk of heart attack and may help with weight management. Regular nut consumption has been linked to longevity and better health.
Coconuts also contain medium chain fatty acids (MCFA), which represent 1% of all fatty acids consumed and have no negative effects on cholesterol. In populations such as Sri Lanka and Polynesia, where coconuts are regularly consumed, there are very low to no rates of heart disease and serum cholesterol.
Dr. Mercola calls chocolate “the new antianxiety drug.” Raw cacao has been called the “perfect food” by cultures in central America. As a whole food, raw cacao is packed with over 300 phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals. Raw cacao may lower cortisol levels, lower blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular function.
Raw cacao powder/nibs are a natural source of powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. A diet rich in antioxidant-filled foods has been linked to longevity and a decreased risk of illness and disease.
For a tiny little seed, these certainly pack a powerful nutritional punch! Chia seeds, because of their soluble fiber, dissolve when mixed with water to form a sort of gelatin. This makes them especially beneficial for endurance runners and other athletes, because they help you stay hydrated for longer periods of time.
Because they also expand in the stomach and are believed to slow the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar, they are an excellent appetite suppressant and aid weight management. They can easily be used as a substitute in recipes to add bulk, but not calories.
Chia seeds are packed with antioxidants that prevent their fat content from going rancid. These same antioxidants help to prevent against excess free radicals in the body that otherwise cause premature signs of aging.
Dates are beneficial to the digestive system and may help prevent constipation and diarrhea, soothe intestinal distress and help with heart problems and anemia. Dates are sweet and make an excellent substitute for refined sugar and corn syrup.
