Benefits:

  1. Raw cacao is not only delicious, it contains magnesium which aids in calming and soothing our bodies, while it also has B vitamins for sustained energy. It also is a great source of polyphenols, containing antioxidant properties that help the body fight off free radicals (these are what can cause cancer).
  2. Organic kale is a nutrient dense powerhouse. This sensational green is high in iron which we need for proper liver function, sustained energy and is also a great anti-inflammatory food. Full of fiber and sulfur, kale is a great detox food.
  3. Hemp Hearts and Avocados are a great source of Omega-3 essential fatty acids. You get an energy boost and mental clarity when consumed regularly. They are beneficial for joint health and they naturally lower cholesterol. They help to decrease inflammation in the body (basically, inflammation is the root for a lot of our issues), protect our vision, prevent wrinkles, and most importantly, promote a sense of overall wellbeing and joy!
