Optimal recovery requires a healthy immune system. To help you along your way, we have included coconut oil to our mix to give you a healthy dose of Lauric acid and Medium chain triglycerides (MCT). Lauric acid is an antifungal and antibacterial property unique to coconut oil and grass fed butter. It is helpful in the prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal issues, skin cond itions, and fungal infections. Medium chain fatty acids are unlike the long chain fatty acids found predominantly in our diet, as they do not require pancreatic juices for absorption. These MCTs are also great for those with digestive issues and inflammatory conditions due to this unique absorption pathway. MCTs are primarily used by the body to produce energy rather than for fat storage, giving you that fat fuelled high that lasts for hours.
Omega 3 Rich
To make our product a complete healthy meal combo and the optimal choice for recovery, we have added omega 3 rich chia seeds and flaxseeds to provide you with a healthy dose of anti-inflammatory essential fatty acids. Inflammation is part of the repair process but in excess can inhibit recovery, prevent gains and cause catastrophic health effects. These Omega-3 fatty acids are highly volatile so we have combined them with antioxidant rich goji berries for healthy brain and heart function.
For the no-carbers out there shaking your head at the 10.6 grams of carbohydrate per serving, will be pleased to know there is more science behind these carbs than you think. We have added dates to your mix, not for sweetness, but for healthy serotonin production and potassium content. Serotonin is our happy neurotransmitter and needs carbohydrates, tryptophan (an amino acid), vitamin B6, magnesium, and zinc for production. Dates are rich in tryptophan, potassium, Vitamin B6, and carbohydrates making them a great food for those feeling a little blue. Combined with zinc containing coconut chips, almonds and sunflower seeds, it’s no wonder that this breakfast feels so good both inside and out.
