Health Benefits of a few of our awesome ingredients
(Yes all have potential benefits, and so do daily vitamins, and common sense)
Hazelnut (powder) - Hazelnuts are a tree nut native to the eastern half of North America. Hazelnut trees are relatively easy to grow and begin producing nuts within 4-6 years of being planted. In addition to providing a quick source of energy and an easy source of plant based protein, hazelnuts offer a variety of other health benefits such as:
Improved Heart Health - Hazelnuts are a source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s have a number of heart-healthy benefits and have been shown to reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. In addition to their omega-3 content, hazelnuts are also packed with antioxidants that protect the body from oxidative stress that can contribute to hypertension. They contain high amounts of phenolic compounds, which help your heart stay healthy by reducing cholesterol and inflammation.
Reduce Cancer Risk - Oxidative stress may increase your risk of developing certain types of cancer. Manganese superoxide dismutase one of the antioxidant enzymes found in hazelnuts—helps decrease oxidative stress and may help reduce your risk of developing cancer. Hazelnuts also contain vitamin E, which helps protect cells against the types of cellular damage that can lead to cancer.
Anti- Inflammatory Properties - Short-term inflammation is an important part of your body’s defense system and helps protect against injury and illness. On the other hand, chronic inflammation is harmful and has been linked to various health conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes. Increased production of free radicals is one possible cause of chronic inflammation. Foods high in antioxidants — such as cacao nibs — help combat this effect.
Nutrition of Hazelnuts
Hazelnuts provide a cholesterol-free energy source. They’re packed with healthy fats, including o-mega 3’s , which can be good for your heart. Hazelnuts are also packed with the following key nutrients: Vitamin E, Thiamin, Magnesium, Copper, Manganese, Vitamin B6, Folate, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc.
CoCoa Nibs -These crushed cacao beans or cocoa beans that have a bitter, chocolatey flavor. They’re produced from beans derived from the Theobroma cacao tree. Cocoa beans are dried after harvesting, then fermented and cracked to produce small, dark bits or cacao nibs. Unlike many chocolate products, cacao nibs are naturally low in sugar. They’re also a good source of fiber, protein, and healthy fats and nutrients that help promote feelings of fullness. They’re rich in many minerals, including iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese, and copper. Magnesium is a mineral needed for over 300 different enzyme reactions in your body but lacking in many people’s diets. Phosphorus, magnesium, and manganese are vital for healthy bones, while copper and iron are needed for producing red blood cells that supply oxygen to your body. Additionally, cacao nibs are packed with potent plant compounds, including flavonoid antioxidants, which have been associated with numerous health benefits.
Packed with antioxidants - Antioxidants are compounds that help protect your cells from damage caused by an excess of molecules called free radicals. When free radicals outnumber antioxidants, it leads to a condition known as oxidative stress that has been linked to a number of chronic conditions, such as heart disease, certain cancers, mental decline, and diabetes (Cacao nibs are loaded with antioxidants). These include a class of polyphenol antioxidants called flavonoids, such as epicatechin, catechin, and procyanidins. In fact, cocoa and chocolate products have the highest flavonoid content by weight of any other food).Flavonoids are associated with many health benefits. For example, research shows that people who consume diets rich in flavonoids have lower rates of heart disease, certain cancers, and mental decline. Due to their high flavonoid content, cacao nibs and other cocoa products can make a significant contribution to dietary antioxidant intake.
Boost immune health - The potential anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of cacao nibs can have a positive impact on your immune health. Research shows that cocoa has beneficial effects on your immune system. For example, cocoa flavonoids help decrease inflammation, which can help improve overall immune response. Cocoa may also improve the function of the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT), an important part of the immune system located throughout your intestines. The GALT contains approximately 70% of all immune cells in your body Studies have demonstrated that cocoa may have protective effects against food allergies by positively impacting the GALT. Cocoa-enriched diets have been shown to decrease sensitivity to oral antigens, toxins and allergens by enhancing the function of a special layer in your intestines that helps protect against food allergy and maintain gut health.
Blood sugar control - Cacao consumption may benefit those with blood sugar control issues. Studies have shown that cocoa can help regulate blood sugar control and improve sensitivity to insulin, a hormone that helps cells absorb blood sugar. With just 2 servings of cocoa per week some culture’s have found a 25% reduced risk of diabetes. Cacao nibs may be one of the best cocoa products to choose for blood sugar regulation, as they’re high in blood-sugar stabilizing antioxidants and do not contain any added sugar.
