HUMMINGWELL WELLNESS BARS
Here are a few of the ingredients that make up the key players in the orchestration of Hummingwell bars as well as their health benefits and contribution to the final product!
Oats - Whole grain oats are naturally gluten free. They contain several vitamins and minerals including thiamine, which helps convert carbohydrates into energy. Oats have an impressive amount of a very desirable water soluble fiber. This fiber has been credited with helping to lower cholesterol levels. Research suggests that it may be beneficial for people with diabetes as it may improve insulin sensitivity. The super phytochemical in oats is an antioxidant that may help reduce the risk of heart disease.
Quinoa - Quinoa is an exceptionally healthy grain. It is naturally gluten free and a good source of plant protein because of it's high level of lysine, the amino acid necessary for protein production in our bodies. It is cholesterol free an relatively low in calories and fat. Additionally, it has calcium, iron, potassium and zinc.
Almonds - Hummingwell is bursting with the delicious natural flavor of almonds. Almonds are rich in Vitamin E, and they also contain protein, folate, riboflavin, iron, calcium and magnesium. Almonds provide monounsaturated fat, which may help to reduce the bad LDL cholesterol while preserving the good HDL cholesterol. They provide a sense of feeling full, so they are very satisfying.
Dark Chocolate - Just like the antioxidant in tea, the phytochemical called catechins is present in dark chocolate. Two ounces contain as much phytonutrients as a cup of black tea. Research tells us that catechins may protect against heart disease and even cancer. These are good reasons to add dark chocolate to Hummingwell, but we also love the wonderful taste.
