BENEFITS

Bananas help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin — the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter…check out 24 other reasons from Food Matters here!

Avocado: is a fruit that has healthy fats. It boosts heart health, lowers cholesterol, boosts eye health, promotes weight loss, helps absorb other nutrients.

Cocoa Powder: packed full of antioxidant-rich phytonutrients, which help to stops the fire of free radicals our bodies generate and are exposed to every day. Includes the mineral copper which supports the oxygenation of red blood cells and aiding in cellular energy production. Also is the highest food in magnesium, which is a mineral that’s crucial for cardiovascular health, optimal blood pressure, and protein synthesis.

Xylitol:  looks and tastes like sugar but offers the opposite effects of white sugar! Xylitol is a prebiotic as it encourages good gut flora (i.e., helpful microorganisms that live in your digestive tract). Xylitol prevents bacterial growth, tooth decay and also helps to remineralize teeth that already have begun to decay. You can find this at Bulk Barn.

Tri-Pow Greens: Read the benefits of Chlorella and Spirulina here! (You can order through me and pick up in person at my clinic if you’re in Edmonton or local area). 

Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil –  energizing to give you a renewed feeling of vigor. The health benefits of peppermint oil include its ability to treat indigestion, respiratory problems, headache, nausea, fever, stomach and bowel spasms, as well as for pain relief.
