NUTRITIONAL NOTES

 

OATS: Scientifically proven, there are few foods better at combatting heart disease or diabetes.  Oats contain a unique fiber called beta-glucan;, eating just 3 grams a day can decrease your bad LDL cholesterol levels by 8-23%.  Highly significant if you take into account that a 1% decrease in LDL cholesterol lowers your risk of heart disease by 2%.

FLAX MEAL: Made from ground flax seed, flax is high in fiber and offers a high concentration of plant-based Omega 3 fatty acids, being good for heart health and brain function. Packed with anti-oxidants, research shows the flax helps prevent cancers like breast, prostate and colon cancer. 

CARROTS: High in Vitamin A and Vitamin K.  Carrots have a high beta-carotene content, which has important anti-oxidant benefits.  Recent studies have concluded carrots can help in reducing risks for cancer and cardiovascular disease.
