Maple Syrup / Maple Sugar   -   Natural, low glycemic, 54 glycemic index - cane sugar, 65.  unrefined, natural sweetener contains higher levels of beneficial nutrients, antioxidants and phytochemicals, zinc, manganese, 24 different antioxidants / phenolic compounds / reduce free radical damage, inflammation, chronic disease, benzoic acid, gallic acid, cinnamic acid, catechin, epicatechin, rutin, quercetin, polyphenol antioxidants, 

 

Maple syrup is an outstanding source of manganese, and contains calcium, potassium, and zinc. Rich with antioxidants, this all-natural sweetener helps to neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative damage. Darker, Grade B maple syrup contains more beneficial antioxidants than the lighter syrups. 

 

Date Syrup  /   Date Paste  -   Naturally low glycemic, dates are loaded with potassium, copper, iron, manganese, magnesium and vitamin B6. From the date palm tree, they are easily digested and help to metabolize proteins, fats and carbohydrates. Evidence shows that dates may help to reduce LDL cholesterol in the blood and may reduce the risk of stroke.

                           

Coconut Oil / MCT  -   Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids coconut oil is one of the few foods that can be classified as a "superfood."  Its unique combination of fatty acids can have positive effects on your health including improving heart health by increasing HDL cholesterol levels, promoting weight loss, treating yeast infections, skin care, hair care, improving digestion, and boosting immunity against a host of infections and diseases.

                            

Dried Cherries -  Cherries contain powerful antioxidants like anthocyanins, cyanidin and quercetin, fiber, vitamin C, carotenoids and natural melatonin, which is a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger that helps "cool down" excess inflammation and associated oxidative stress. It also plays a vital role in sleep and bodily regeneration.

 

Dried Blueberries    -  Blueberries contain vitamins K and C, and manganese, vitamin E, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, and copper.  The phytonutrients in blueberries provide the most important health benefits; anthocyanins, which give blueberries their vivid color, also are known for their natural ability to neutralize free radicals. Other ingredients of consequence include hydroxycinnamic acids (such as caffeic, ferulic, and coumaric acid), hydroxybenzoic acids (gallic and pro-catechuic acid), and flavonols (such as kaempferol, quercetin, and myricetin), as well as pterostilbene and resveratrol. All unique to themselves and in combination with other compounds, each has antioxidant and inflammation-fighting properties – even protecting the retina of the eye, for example – making blueberries such a nutritious food.
