Dates

The dates are fruits of the palm tree, which grows in the dry tropical and subtropical regions of Africa and Asia.

 The dates contain large amounts of vitamin A and vitamin B6, folic acid, iron, potassium, copper, magnesium and other minerals. 10 dates per day cover half of the recommended daily iron dose, which is why they are recommended for anemic conditions such as thalassemia (decreased hemoglobin production). Contain antioxidant flavonoids such as beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin, which protect cells from the destructive effect of free radicals.

 

Spirulina powder

Spirulina are floating, blue-green algae that grow naturally in tropical and subtropical lakes with high pH and high concentration of carbonates and bicarbonates. Used as a food or supplement.

Spirulina is especially rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals. It contains especially a lot of lysine, cysteine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine - important (essential) amino acids that can only be obtained with food. It is also a rich source of vitamin B12.

Over the centuries Spirulina has been treated as a food in different forms in different parts of the world. The composition is mainly proteinaceous and digests easily. Contains minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids (including DHA, which is very valuable for vegans because it is hardly contained in other herbal products) and antioxidants that do not exist as a combination in any other food - animal or plant.

 

Hemp protein

Hemp protein powder is made from hemp seeds. It inherits all the health properties of hemp seeds, while at the same time it has a very high protein content (about 48.5%). This makes it exceptional for sportsmen and people who lead an active life.

Hemp powder contains vitamins, enzymes and minerals. It is readily absorbed by the human body and does not contain gluten. Hemp powder has an optimal ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids, and therefore works well with hormones. 

 

Almonds

Almonds are known for their antioxidant properties. They are extremely rich in vitamin E (100 g contain 229% of the recommended daily dose). It plays an important role in preventing cardiovascular disease and cancer, as well as slowing down the aging process. The high levels of phosphorus and magnesium in almonds help to strengthen the bones. They are also rich in unsaturated fat.

The Almond Country is Southwestern Asia. The tamed form can also be grown in more northern areas, including the British Isles.

 

Raw Cocoa beans

Cocoa beans contain no sugar and are rich in protein, fat, fiber, iron, calcium, magnesium, B, C, E, and other important ingredients. Magnesium can increase the alkalinity of our body, which helps in detoxification.

Cocoa beans contain serotonin, tryptophan, anandamine, dopamine, phenylethylamine (PEA) and monoamine oxidase inhibitors. They all have a positive effect on the brain by improving the metabolism and bioavailability of the various neurotransmitters. This results in a significant antidepressant effect.
