Fresh Georgia PecansPecan nuts are rich source of energy, provide 690 calories/100 g and contain health benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for wellness. The nuts are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid and an excellent source of phenolic antioxidants. Regular addition of pecan nuts in the diet helps to decrease total as well as LDL or “bad cholesterol” and increases HDL or “good cholesterol” levels in the blood. Research studies suggest that Mediterranean diet, which is rich in dietary-fiber, mono-unsaturated fatty acids, and antioxidants would help to prevent coronary artery disease and strokes by favoring healthy blood lipid profile. Pecan nuts are rich source of many phyto-chemical substances that may contribute to their overall antioxidant activity, including polyphenolic antioxidant ellagic acid, vitamin E, beta-carotene, lutein and zea-xanthin. Research studies have been suggestive of that these compounds help the body remove toxic oxygen-free radicals and thus, protect the body from diseases, cancers, as well as infections. Anti-proliferative properties of ellagic acid are because of its ability to inhibit DNA binding of certain carcinogens such as nitrosamines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons; thus protecting the human body from cancers. Pecans are an excellent source of vitamin-E, especially rich in gamma-tocopherol; provide about 25 g per100 g. Vitamin E is a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant, required for maintaining the integrity of cell membrane of mucus membranes and skin by protecting it from harmful oxygen-free radicals. The nuts are very rich sources of several important B-complex groups of vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, and folates. Together, these vitamins work as co-factors for the enzyme metabolism inside the human body. The nuts are also rich source of minerals like manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium. …They are truly BEYOND DELICIOUS!!
Chia Seed “Often called runner’s food, chia is a nutrient rich superfood that provides sustained energy for your body. Packed with more than 8 times the omega-3’s found in salmon, this small seed has big nutritional value. Ih has more antioxidants than blueberries and more fiber than oatmeal.”
Uncooked Oats “ “Oats are rich in carbs and fiber, but also higher in protein and fat than most other grains. They are very high in many vitamins and minerals. Oats contain many powerful antioxidants, including avenanthramides. These compounds may help reduce blood pressure and provide other benefits. Oats are high in the soluble fiber beta-glucan, which has numerous benefits. It helps reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels, promotes healthy gut bacteria and increases feelings of fullness. Oats may lower the risk of heart disease by reducing both total and LDL cholesterol and protecting LDL cholesterol from oxidation. Due to the soluble fiber beta-glucan, oats may improve insulin sensitivity and help lower blood sugar levels. Some research suggests that oats may help prevent asthma in children when fed to young infants. Finally, studies indicate that oat bran can help reduce constipation in elderly individuals, significantly reducing the need to use laxatives..”
Apricots“Apricots are low in calories and fat while also an excellent source of vitamins A and C. Apricots contain numerous antioxidants, most notably flavonoids. They help protect your body from oxidative stress, which is linked to many chronic diseases. Apricots are an excellent source of beta carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and vitamins C and E. These nutrients protect your eyes against damage. Apricots are naturally high in antioxidants, which guard against environmental damage from sunlight, pollution, and cigarette smoke. These compounds may benefit your skin by lowering your risk of wrinkles and sunburn. Apricots are a good source of soluble fiber, which feeds your healthy gut bacteria and may boost digestive health. They are high in potassium which aids nerve signaling, muscle contractions, and fluid balance. Eating potassium-rich foods, such as apricots, may help prevent high blood pressure and reduce your risk of stroke. Apricots are naturally high in water, which is important for staying hydrated. Proper hydration is vital for several aspects of health, including blood pressure and heart rate..”
Goji Berries.“Goji berries are a very good source of vitamin A. Since this vitamin has links to night vision, it is logical to assume that eaters of goji berries will be more resistant to eyesight deterioration. There is also some evidence that substances contained in these berries help protect eye membranes and reduce the chance of serious eye diseases. Research shows that goji berries are an excellent source of antioxidants. It follows from this that if you include them in your diet, you strengthen the forces that counteract the harm that excessive free radical activity. Also, goji berries provide a welcome water supplement. These berries are very tasty, and they are rich is the hydrogen you need to stay well hydrated. Since goji berries contain good quantities of healthy sleep inducing Thiamine and Magnesium they might offer a much healthier alternative to sleeping tablets. They are also far safer with no risks of overdosing. The high levels of Vitamin C and Zinc found in goji berries assists the human immune system to operate most effectively.”
Goji Berries.“.Just 1 cup of raw whole cranberries has almost 25% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin C as well as other vitamins and minerals in trace amounts. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant and supports immune health. Cranberries are a rich source of proanthocyanidins (PAs or PACs). Essentially, these are condensed phenolic compounds that act as super-powered antioxidants. Many fruits, vegetables and seeds contain PAs, but cranberries simply have more. Because of the properties of these super-powered antioxidants, cranberries have been used to support urinary tract health and bladder health for centuries… and modern studies have backed up those claims..”
Dark Chocolate“.Cocoa is rich in plant chemicals called flavanols that may help to protect the heart. Dark chocolate contains up to 2-3 times more flavanol-rich cocoa solids than milk chocolate. Flavanols have been shown to support the production of nitric oxide (NO) in the endolethium (the inner cell lining of blood vessels) that helps to relax the blood vessels and improve blood flow, thereby lowering blood pressure. Flavanols in chocolate can increase insulin sensitivity in short term studies; in the long run this could reduce risk of diabetes. Observational studies support the benefits of cocoa flavanols. The link between blood pressure and high cocoa intake was described in a study of the Kuna Indians, an isolated tribe who live on the Caribbean Coast of Panama.  Hypertension was extremely uncommon in this group, even among older ages, and even with a dietary salt intake that is greater than most Western populations. When the Kuna migrated to urban environments and changed their diets, their rates of high blood pressure increased. Notably, their traditional intake of cocoa as a beverage was very high, at more than five cups daily of either home-grown or Colombian cocoa powder rich in flavanols. The urinary levels of flavanols in the island-dwelling Kuna were significantly higher and their rates of death from heart disease, cancer, and diabetes significantly lower than their counterparts living in urban centers. Other observational studies suggest a link between high cocoa or chocolate intake of 6 grams daily (1-2 small squares) and a reduced risk of heart disease and mortality, possibly in part by reducing blood pressure and inflammation. Dark chocolate is high in calories (150-170 calories per ounce) and can contribute to weight gain if eaten in excess. However, chocolate, like nuts can induce satiety, so the longer term implications for weight control are not clear. It also contains a moderate amount of saturated fat, which can negatively affect blood lipid levels, though its heart-protective effects from flavanols appear to outweigh the risk. Choosing dark chocolate and eating modest quantities may offer the greatest health benefits…”
