Carbohydrates are your body’s main source of energy: They help fuel your brain, kidneys, heart, muscles and central nervous system.

Simple sugars travel through the blood stream to body cells. There they provide energy and help form proteins, or are stored for future use.

Dietary fiber appear to be at significantly lower risk for developing coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and certain gastrointestinal diseases. Increasing fiber intake lowers blood pressure and serum cholesterol levels.

Sodium is an extremely important electrolyte and an essential ion present in the extracellular fluid (ECF). One of the health benefits of sodium is the pivotal role it plays in enzyme operations and muscle contraction. It is very important for osmoregulation and fluid maintenance within the human body.

The health benefits of potassium include relief from stroke, high blood pressure, heart and kidney disorders, and anxiety and stress. It helps enhance muscle strength, metabolism, water balance, electrolytic functions, and the nervous system.

Calcium is a mineral important for strong bones and teeth. Too little calcium can lead to the bone conditions rickets and osteoporosis. Calcium also has a role in blood clotting and the regulation of muscle contractions including the heartbeat.

Magnesium helps increase energy, calms nerves and anxiety, treats insomnia and helps you fall asleep, helps with digestion by relieving constipation, relieves muscle aches and spasms, regulates levels of calcium, potassium and sodium, important for health and prevents migraine headaches.
