APPLE CIDER VINEGAR  
- Alkalizes the body and helps maintain a balanced pH level. 

- Helps to balance blood sugar levels.

- Also contains a beneficial yeast that acts as a prebiotic for the healthy bacteria in your gut, essentially helping good bacteria grow and balancing your gut flora.

- Contains natural enzymes which stimulate digestive secretions to help the body breakdown food.

 

LEAFY GREENS 
- Greens are high in minerals (iron, potassium, etc.) and vitamins like vitamin K which is essential for vitamin D absorption and utilization.  Not to mention vitamins A, C, E, etc.
- Chlorophyll which is found in all plants & greens helps fight off toxins and inflammation. 
- Raw foods like greens contain many cancer fighting properties that combat free radicals.

- Provide UV protection for your skin at a cellular level through the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits of carotenoids.

 

 

HEMP HEARTS

- 3 tablespoons of hemp hearts provides up to 10g of plant protein.

AVOCADO

SAUERKRAUT
