Some nutritional information
The health-promoting powers of oats are truly impressive. Oats are low in calories and high in fiber and protein. They’re a rich source of magnesium, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium and thiamine. The synergy of the nutrients in oats makes them an outstanding, formidable and inexpensive super-food suitable for the whole family.
Sunflower seeds are the gift of the beautiful sunflower, a plant with rays of petals emanating from its bright yellow, seed-studded center. Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of Vitamin E and a very good source of copper, vitamin B1, manganese, selenium, phosphorus, magnesium, Vitamin B6, folate, and niacin.
The diversity of antioxidants in pumpkin seeds makes them unique in their antioxidant support as they contain a wide variety of antioxidant phytonutrients. Pumpkin seeds are also a very good source of phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, zinc, iron and protein.
This beautiful bright berry provides us with an astonishing array of phytonutrients. Many of these phytonutrients offer antioxidant and anti-inflammatory health benefits. Cranberries are a very good source of Vitamin C, dietary fibre and manganese, as well as a good source of Vitamin E, Vitamin K, copper, and pantothenic acid.
