Coconut milk is often a staple fat source for those following a Vegan, Vegetarian, or Paleo diet. Nutritionally, it’s high in saturated fatty acids and medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), both dietary fats that can easily be broken down and used by the body as an energy source, which means you won’t store it like regular fats! If you’re looking to lose weight, good fats like coconut and avocado can be just the thing to jump start your system.
It’s important to ensure your coconut milk is BPA free, which means no cans. You can also make your own coconut milk, a process we’ll be trying soon, now that we’ve gotten a Blendtec WildSide Blender to play with (courtesy Blendtec’s sample department).
Good for everything from boosting your immune system to overall wellness, 100% Pure Aroniaberry Concentrate contains a full seven pounds of aroniaberries in every bottle, and is also proven to help reduce muscle recovery time after workouts.
We add a shot of the concentrate to our morning water to boost energy throughout the day.
Antioxidants are an integral part of maintaining good health, especially with respect to aging and age-related disorders. Scientists have found that antioxidants increase our resistance to disease and boost our immune systems. The higher the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), the higher the antioxidant activity.
Aroniaberries are also purported to assist with better vision and improve macular health, which many times declines with age, due to lack of nutrition, and loss of essential vitamins and trace minerals that the body needs to stay in optimum health.
