Nutrition Info

Oats

Oats are particularly high in manganese which is great for healthy bone formation, healthy skin and helping to control blood sugar. Oats are a wholegrain, that means the good stuff hasn’t been removed. Wholegrains are an important source of B vitamins and fibre.

Oats are a great source of the soluble fibre called beta-glucan. That’s what makes porridge kinda viscous and it stays quite viscous as it passes through you, sweeping up any excess cholesterol as it goes. A happy gut is at the heart of good health!

Oats do a special thing – as they pass through your intestine their bulk presses against its muscly walls. It presses back in response and by doing so its muscles get stronger. Oats are literally like a sparring partner for your digestive tract!

Berries

Berries are not only wonderful and versatile gems of sweetness, they also provide us with a myriad of nutrients, helping to maintain a well-rounded diet and good health. They’re packed to the brim with flavonoids for fighting inflammation and cell damage. They’re also a great source of fibre, but only when eaten as the whole fruit; juicing fruit breaks the fibre down before your body has the joy of doing so. Fibre gives your good gut microbes their favourite food and helps them to proliferate and spread their magic right through your system all the way from brain to toes. They also provide vitamin C for healthy skin and connective tissue as well as immunity.
