HBFIT TIPS: SUPERFOOD BREAKDOWN FEATURING RAW REVOLUTIONAugust 2, 2016 2:42 am
Gone are the days of over-processed ingredients and false promises…After many shopping trips ending with disappointment, we’re happy to say that we’ve found the ultimate snack bar packed with raw and organic ingredients to fuel your mind and body. Founded by a registered nurse, Raw Revolution was built around the mentality that ‘natural’ should also mean edible and they proceeded to create the Glo Bar, the snack filled with a grocery list of superfood ingredients.
In this post, we’ve partnered with Raw Rev to break down the health benefits of all these superfoods because how often is it you find a raw, vegan, kosher bar that’s filled with this many good-for-you ingredients?
Peanuts: Peanuts are packed with healthy fats and fiber which work to lower cholesterol and protect your heart. They also work to help your outside as much as your insides with biotin, the vitamin essential for healthy looking hair and scalp.
Pea Protein: A fast growing fave among the wellness community, pea protein has a great amino acid profile, including a few amino acids known for decreasing muscle breakdown. But it doesn’t just stop there: This protein is among the hypoallergenic of protein powders and is perfect for those looking for a plant-based option that aids in weight loss and regulating blood sugar.
Organic Brown Rice Protein: Another hypo-allergenic option, brown rice protein is suitable for almost anyone with dietary restrictions. The main benefits of brown rice protein are that it aids in fat burning through the digestive process and helps to balance your blood sugar and insulin levels.
Raw Organic Hemp Protein: As well as being an excellent source of protein, hemp protein contains all 21 known amino acids including the nine that the body is unable to self-produce. The added benefit of using this plant based source is that it builds muscle strength – an excellent intake before a grueling workout.
Raw Organic Virgin Coconut Oil: It’s hard to find something that coconut oil doesn’t do. Whether you’re looking to treat skin problems like psoriasis and eczema or strengthen your immune system, coconut oil can do it all. More than 90% consists of saturated fats (the good kind!) which facilitates many of the internal body benefits.
Raw Organic Chia Seeds: It’s hard to believe something so small can have such a large impact on your body. Chia seeds are packed with nutrients like calcium, magnesium and phosphorus that are crucial for your body’s development in addition to carrying antioxidants that fight the production of free radicals, which contribute to ageing and diseases.
Raw Organic Sprouted Flax Seeds: Having been around for almost 6,000 years, Flax seeds may very well have been the OG superfood. Flax seeds are the richest source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids and help to clear skin, reduce glucose cravings and balance hormones. Fun fact: flax seeds are the number one source of lignans in humans — the plant compound shown to help fight breast cancer.
It’s hard to decide what we love more about Raw Revolution’s Glo Bars: the fact that they come in a ton of delicious flavors–like Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Peanut Butter & Sea Salt–or that each bar is made up of a superfood blend of whole and organic ingredients, each working to improve various parts of your body’s health. HBFIT tried and tested (every single flavor!), and can assure you that the Glo Bars leave you feeling re-vitalized from the inside out. So whether you’re looking for a healthy snack to stash at your desk or a pre-workout energy boost — Raw Rev’s Glo Bars are the answer to your snacking needs. Finally… a snack that multitasks just as well as we do.
