Key Ingredients in Real Bar
What makes it REAL? …Real nutritious ingredients blended to preserve full flavor, texture, and health benefits!
ORGANIC DARK CHOCOLATE
The flavanoids found in dark chocolate are naturally occurring antioxidants with beneficial effects on the cardio vascular system. They protect against free radicals and relax blood pressure. Small amounts of dark chocolate eaten every day (like the 1.1 oz of organic dark chocolate in REAL BAR) reduces blood pressure and reduces LDL cholesterol and stimulates endorphin production. In other words, it tastes great, gives you energy, and…it’s good for you.
Pomegranate has become very popular in recent years. It is high in antioxidants, which we know are very important in our diet. Pomegranate has so many health benefits, it is being called a “super fruit” by “foodies” like Oprah and Rachael Ray. The benefits people seem to be most interested in are: weight loss, anti-aging, and prevention of heart disease. Pomegranate has high levels of vitamin C, vitamin B3, B6, B12, and E. These nutrients give you a natural boost of energy that will last throughout the day.
Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals. It is classified as a “functional food” because it provides many health benefits beyond its nutritional content. Modern medical science is now confirming the use of coconut in treating many ailments. Coconut kills bacteria, fungi and yeasts, supports the immune system, boosts energy and endurance and reduces inflammation Coconut also helps to protect the body from harmful free radicals that promote premature aging and degenerative disease. The bottom line…. it should be part of everyone’s diet.
ORGANIC SOAKED NUTS AND SEEDS
Digestion and absorption of nutrients are greatly improved by the soaking of nuts and seeds. Nuts contain phytic acid, which is removed by the soaking process. The real health issue for nuts is high amounts of enzyme inhibitors, which strain the human digestive system. Soaking nuts in water neutralizes these enzymes and encourages healthy ones. Making the nuts easier to digest, allows the nutrients to be absorbed more easily. All the nuts in REAL BAR are soaked, rinsed and dried.
ORGANIC WHEY PROTEIN
Whey protein is an excellent protein choice for anyone that values a healthy diet. Whey protein isolate, the kind used in REAL BAR, is the purest form available, and is unsurpassed as a viable source of essential amino acids required for a healthy daily diet. Essential amino acids are the key to building healthy muscles, skin, nails and other body tissue. Whey protein is considered the “Gold Standard” of protein for serious athletes who require more protein in their diet to develop and sustain a lean, strong, defined body.
