Health Benefits:

Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamins C and K as well as providing a good dose of fibre, folic acid, manganese and potassium. They also contain significant amounts of phytonutrients and flavonoids which make strawberries bright red. They have been used throughout history in a medicinal context to help with digestive ailments, teeth whitening and skin irritations. Their fibre and fructose content may help regulate blood sugar levels by slowing digestion and the fibre is thought to have a satiating effect. Leaves can be eaten raw, cooked or used to make tea.

The vibrant red colour of strawberries is due to large amounts of anthocyanidin, which also means they contain powerful antioxidants and are thought to protect against inflammation, cancer and heart disease.

Raw cacao powder is a superfood considering all the nutrients it contains, like vitamins, minerals, fibre, protein, flavonoids, polyphenols and much much more! Thanks to that raw cacao is supporting healthy metabolism, so beneficial for people trying to lose weight, it is full of antioxidants boosting our immune system and cardiovascular system, it is all a wonderful mood enhancer.

Coconut improves insulin sensitivity and blocks fat storage, also in patients with type 2 diabetes, therefore it is supporting a healthy weight loss. It is also antimicrobial, it has antioxidant and anti-stress properties and it supports a healthy heart.  Coconut fat is a type of fat that we shouldn’t be afraid of and we should use it as often as possible. Not only coconut fat is digested different and converted straight away for energy other than being stored in our fat tissue. is
