Our Energy Gel Electrolyte Base

Raw Palm Nectar is low glycemic (GI = 35); its sugar content releases slowly into the bloodstream, providing a steady stream of energy without energy spikes or crashes. There are a total of 11 amino acids found in raw palm nectar. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which build our entire body. Our cells, tissues and muscles are made with amino acids; they are thus essential for muscle growth and tissue repair. Palm nectar is a beneficial source of electrolytes, such as potassium and magnesium. It also contains vitamins and minerals such as B vitamins, vitamin C, zinc and iron. The prebiotics fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) and inulin found in palm nectar help to feed and increase the healthy flora in our intestines.

Raw Almond Butter. Almonds contain vitamin E, magnesium, omega 3 fatty acids and iron.

Vitamin E is the most powerful antioxidant, meaning it protects cells from damaging free radicals, preventing these harmful chemicals from damaging DNA and cell membranes.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for maintaining metabolic, heart, and neural health.

Iron promotes healthy oxygen transport. It helps you make hemoglobin and myoglobin, two proteins that oxygenate your tissues. Like vitamin E, iron protects your cells from oxidative damage.

Raw Cacao Powder. Cacao is the highest whole food source of magnesium, which also happens to be the most deficient mineral in the American diet. Magnesium relaxes muscles, improves bowel function and relaxes the heart and cardiovascular system. It also helps promote quality sleep.

Cashews are brimming with proanthocyanidins, a type of flavanol that starves tumors and prevents cancer cells from dividing.

The oleic acid found in cashews promotes sound cardiovascular health by reducing triglyceride levels, which is associated with heart disease risk.

Cashews are another excellent source of vitamins and minerals, including magnesium and copper. 

Sunflower Butter.
 Sunflower seeds are rich in balanced fats and several vitamins and minerals. Sunflower seeds are especially high in vitamin E and selenium. These function as antioxidants to protect your body’s cells against DNA and membrane damage.

Additionally, sunflower seeds are a good source of phenolic acids and flavonoids, which also function as antioxidants and help reduce inflammation.
