The Health Benefits of Nutritious and Delicious Supernola



Cindy Poiesz

Supernola is a chunky snack of natural, energy-sustaining whole foods that provide the body with surprising health benefits, such as reducing inflammation, fighting off free radicals and detoxifying the body.

Goji Berries: These red berries, packed with antioxidants and fiber, contain 18 amino acids and 21 trace minerals, are a significant source of vitamin A and may help support the immune system and protect the liver.

Red Maca: More nutrient-dense than regular maca, red maca is packed with vitamins and nutrients that are believed to reduce stress. Its energy boosting properties have been used to enhance endurance and performance, and to reduce a number of male and female reproduction-related issues.

Black Lava Salt: This exotic salt from Cyprus is infused with activated charcoal to help cleanse and detoxify the body. Its natural minerals and trace elements help to increase hydration, prevent muscle cramping, aid in metabolic function, help the intestines absorb nutrients, improve circulation, dissolve and eliminate sediments and remove toxins. With a lower sodium content than regular salt, yet a more concentrated salty taste, it’s a good choice for those watching their sodium intake.

Turmeric: Turmeric is a very powerful anti-inflammatory, which means it can help anything from arthritis to acne to Alzheimer's, and has even helped to reverse the process of cancer in some studies. Great for helping to heal many gut-related illnesses, turmeric has also been linked to natural weight loss.

Raw Local Honey: Honey has many benefits, from healing wounds, to antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, to fighting allergies and even cough suppression. It is an antioxidant powerhouse and provides the body with quick energy. Unlike processed honey, raw honey maintains its incredible nutritional value and health benefits.

Chia Seeds: Full of antioxidants, chia seeds provide the most omega-3 fatty acids out of any plant, packed with more protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and manganese. They also help to regulate insulin levels and provide a feeling of fullness.

Brazil Nuts: A powerful source of selenium, brazil nuts help fight inflammation and a bad mood. They’ve also been identified as a cancer-fighting food. Eat just one or two of these nuts per day to reap their benefits.

Flax Seeds: These brown seeds contain a significant amount of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Due to their lignan content, they are a great anti-inflammatory and may help lower cholesterol levels. Because the body cannot digest flax seeds whole, these must be broken or ground for the body to reap their benefits.

Supernola is a complex yet simple snack to help on the journey, whether at home or on the go.

Supernola is produced and distributed in Central PA. For more information, visit EatSupernola.com.
