When reading through our ingredients you may be surprised to find many ingredients which you eat yourself and feed your family with. We choose each ingredient in our recipes carefully, considering not only what they contribute to the body as a whole, but how these ingredients interact with one another to provide a truly all-natural holistic food. Raspberries, for instance, aren’t just a tasty treat, but are packed full of nutritional benefits which support a healthy immune system.

Raspberries are a natural source of vitamins, specifically Vitamin C and Vitamin K. Vitamin C helps to boost the immune system, which helps protect that body from illness. It does this by increasing the body’s production of antibodies that fight to keep those tricky viruses out. 

The Vitamin K in which raspberries contain is also very beneficial. Natural Vitamin K helps towards preventing heart disease by preventing calcium from building up in arteries.

These berries aren’t just packed full of vitamins, the also contain great minerals such as magnesium, potassium, manganese, iron, folic acid, and copper.
