All of the raw nuts in our chocolate covered mixes are soaked overnight where amazing dormant enzymes and nutrients are activated and existing fats are transformed into healthier amino acids. This process is called germination and allows the nuts to be easily digested and the nutrients readily absorbed by the body. The nuts are seasoned and gently air-dried at low temperatures to protect all live enzymes and nutrients.
Brazil nuts are one of the richest dietary sources for selenium, a vital mineral for human health that's excellent at neutralizing free radicals, boosting the immune system, and contributing to a properly functioning thyroid. They're s rich source of omega-6 fatty acids and healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, which promote healthy cholesterol levels. Brazil nuts contain magnesium, phosphorus, copper, zinc, potassium, manganese, calcium, iron, and thiamine. They are also high in protein, dietary fiber, vitamin E(a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant), and B-complex vitamins.
Mulberries contain significantly less sugar than other popular fruits and are a great source of protein and fiber.

In Chinese medicine, mulberries are believed to cleanse the blood and increase its production in addition to strengthening the kidneys and cleansing the liver.
Cacao is filled with dietary fiber, iron, calcium, chromium, zinc, manganese, copper, and potassium.

Cacao helps support a healthy cardiovascular system and is a great defender against oxidative stress and age-related issues.
