Since all ingredients are selected from our list of World's Healthiest Foods you are ensured to receive an abundance of health-protective nutrients. When we evaluated this recipe against our WHFoods recommended daily amounts It provided 264% vitamin K to help promote healthy blood clotting, 93% folate to sustain brain and nervous system activity, 79% B3 to help promote energy production, 78% protein to help support proper body composition, 73% B6 to help promote brain and nervous system health, 64% selenium for antioxidant protection, 52% pantothenic acid to help promote fat metabolism, 49% dietary fiber to help improve cardiovascular function including cholesterol metabolism, 48% B2 to help provide antioxidant protection, and much more!
