Each week we take about 300 seasonal apples, shred and thinly slice them, and coat them with a mouth-watering mixture of cinnamon, matcha, and organic grade B maple syrup. The result is a deliciously simple snack, bursting with flavor and tons of nutrients.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away! Turns out this saying really has merit! Apples have been found to improve the health of people suffering from diabetes, and can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Apples have been directly linked to reducing the uptake of carbohydrates in the body, which in turn reduces the fluctuation of blood sugar levels that occur in the bloodstream - an essential part of managing diabetes. Apples also lower levels of cholesterol in the body, making them a strong defense mechanism against cardiovascular disease.
Medicinal Power Of Cinnamon
Cinnamon also has medicinal power - it can enhance the metabolism of glucose and cholesterol, and has been found to have a favorable impact on the blood fat levels of people with type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon is also known to delay how quickly food leaves the stomach and enters the intestines. In this regard, cinnamon may be helpful in reducing appetite and hastening weight loss by enhancing satiety (the feeling of fullness).
Green Tea is a powerful anti-inflammatory that stimulates the liver’s ability to break down toxins. It also contains compounds that increase levels of dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that stimulates the brain’s pleasure centers and makes you more motivated to make positive lifestyle choices!
