A whopping 200-300 times sweeter than regular sugar, Stevia sweetener is made from the leaves of the Stevia Rebaudiana plant. Despite that powerhouse sweetness, it doesn’t affect blood sugar levels or insulin response. Nor does it cause cavities or other nasty side-effects.
Flaxseed is often dubbed the 'new wonder food'. Cultivated in Babylon as early as 3000 BC, this tiny seed has all sorts of healthy components, including fibre, which aids digestion, and heart health-boosting Omega-3 acids.
Raw cacao is a delicious way to add antioxidants, plant iron, magnesium and calcium to your diet. Raw cacao can even help improve your mood, thanks to its tryptophan, tyrosine and phenethylamine content and its interaction with mood-enhancing neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and endorphins.
