Key Ingredients

Bananas are full of potassium, which helps actually reduce the risk of stroke (1).  Plus, its high fiber content fight inflammation in your bowels and soaks up bile to eliminate toxic waste from your digestive tract (2). The fiber also prevents cardiovascular disease by clearing plaque from your arteries (3).

Cocoa contains flavanols that may reverse memory decline by as much as 20 or even 30 years (4). It also protects neurons and improves mood. Additionally, cocoa has the ability to prevent and treat allergies, cancers, oxidative stress, inflammatory conditions, anxiety, hyperglycemia, and insulin resistance (5).

Nuts are full of healthy fats that help you feel full and satisfied to prevent over-indulging. They’re also packed with protein to keep you energized throughout the day. Nuts are so healthy that a Harvard study concluded: “regular nut eaters were less likely to die of cancer or heart disease — in fact, were less likely to die of any cause.”
