Organic Raw "Life By Chocolate" Trail Mix
While others claim of Death by Chocolate may be true, this mix of powerful antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, vitamins and minerals is raw, organic and delicious and will aid in maintaining your life and healthy lifestyle. Featuring cacao covered goldenberries, cacao covered goji berries, cacao covered coconut and cacao covered mulberries.
Cacao is filled with dietary fiber, iron, calcium, chromium, zinc, manganese, copper, and potassium. It's one of the highest food sources of magnesium and antioxidants, and also contains significant amounts of vitamin C, PEAs (the chemical our bodies create when we fall in love), and tryptophan (the "feel good" nutrient). Cacao helps support a healthy cardiovascular system and is a great defender against oxidative stress and age-related issues.
Goldenberries (also known as Incan berries) pack an amazing tart punch and are an amazing fruit source of protein, as they contain 16% protein. They are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals including phosphorus, the antioxidants vitamin A and vitamins C, as well as B-complex vitamins (specifically B1, B2, B6, and B12) which help to reduce stress, improve memory, boost metabolism, reduce fatigue, and even help relieve PMS symptoms. They also offer high levels of bioflavanoids (also known as Vitamin P) which possess anti-sclerotic, antiviral, anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antihistamine, and antioxidant properties, and play a vital role in nutrient absorption and detoxification. The goldenberry\'s high levels of pectin also help to regulate flow of food through the digestive tract, and even help lower cholesterol.
Goji berries are simply one of the most nutrient dense fruits on earth. They are great for strength, stamina, and longevity - and they actually stimulate the body's natural HGH production. Goji berries are the highest rated antioxidant (ORAC) food in the world based on the ORAC Chart of Fruits, Vegetables and Essential Oils. These antioxidants (like vitamin C) help combat premature aging, and they actually contain 500 times more vitamin C per ounce than oranges! Goji berries are also a good source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, and E, and even have natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal compounds. Plus, they contain all 18 of the essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) that the human body cannot create itself and have one of the highest protein concentration of any fruit.
Coconut helps to improve heart and brain health with its short chain and medium chain fatty acids (which have no negative effect on cholesterol ratios unlike long-chain fatty acids which make up nearly 98% of all fatty acids consumed).
Coconut is good at reducing sweet cravings and made up of an impressive 61% dietary fiber. More impressive is the fact that it's all insoluble fiber, meaning that the body cannot digest it, no calories are derived from it, and it has no effect of blood sugar. In addition, coconut helps to improve digestion by supporting the proper absorption of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It also helps prevent obesity by speeding up metabolism while providing an immediate source of energy with less calories than other fats.
Mulberries contain significantly less sugar than other popular fruits and are a great source of protein and fiber which can help lower cholesterol and promote regular digestion. They are also a rich source of resveratrol, iron, B-complex vitamins, and vitamin K, and are excellent sources of vitamin C and phenols which are powerful antioxidants and immune-boosters. In Chinese medicine, mulberries are believed to cleanse the blood and increase its production in addition to strengthening the kidneys and cleansing the liver. They're also considered to be great for controlling blood sugar levels and heart rate.
