Various studies have shown that almonds have an affinity for cardio vascular health.

Activated nuts are easily digested and more nutritious than raw or roasted nuts. Raw nuts contain enzyme inhibitors that make them difficult to digest, inhibiting our body's ability to absorb nutrients. An activated nut is a nut that has been soaked (sprouted) to release its enzyme inhibitors. Our nuts are dehydrated between 38-40 degrees to maintain optimum nutrition.
A great source of Omega 3 and 6 as well as Vitamin E, thiamine, copper, manganese, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous and zinc. With very high protein levels, a further notable aspect of our Brazil Nuts is that they’re the highest dietary source of selenium available.
Selenium is a rare mineral which is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals, which are natural by-products of oxygen metabolism that may contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Other selenoproteins help regulate thyroid function and play a role in the immune system.
The Chia seed contains essential minerals, phosphorous, manganese, calcium, potassium, sodium. But most importantly it contains 13% fat, of which 64% is ALA (a-linolenic acid), also known as Omega 3, which is critical for our body to function at optimum levels. It cannot be synthesized by the human body but is vital for normal metabolism.
Goji berries have been used in traditional Asian and in particular Chinese Medicine for over 5,000 years. The ancient texts of Chinese Medicine say that goji berries increase the "chi" or the vital life force of those that eat them. The Physician’s Handbook "Ben Cao Gang Mu" recorded during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 A.D.) states, "taking in Chinese Wolfberry/Goji Berry regularly may regulate the flow of vital energy and strengthen the physique, which can lead to longevity".
In terms of overall nutrition Goji Berries are unmatched by any other food. They contain 18 kinds of amino acids (six times higher than bee pollen) and contain all 8 essential amino acids (such as isoleucine and tryptophan). They contain 11.7% protein, and 328 calories per 100g! They also contain up to 21 trace minerals (the most powerful ones being zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, and phosphorus)! Goji berries are the richest source of carotenoids, including beta-carotene (more beta carotene than carrots), of all known foods or plants on earth! They contain 500 times the amount of vitamin C, by weight, than oranges making them second only to camu camu berries as the richest vitamin C source on earth. Goji berries also contain vitamins B1, B2, B6, and vitamin E.
Goji berries contain polysaccharides which fortify the immune system and build strength. A polysaccharide found in this fruit has been found to be a powerful substance that stimulates the secretion of rejuvenative human growth hormone by the pituitary gland.
