Health Tips

1. Raisins are the original candy- nature's candy. They are one of the most nutritious dried fruits in the world. Raisins are cholesterol-free, low in sodium and totally fat-free. They provide many necessary vitamins and minerals, including iron, potassium, calcium and certain B vitamins. Raisins are a good source of fiber and rich in antioxidants. Raisins are 70% pure fructose (a natural form of sugar) which is easily digested for quick energy.

2. New research indicates that subjects can lower their cholesterol level when naturally fiber-rich sun-dried raisins are included in a Mediterranean-style diet.The new research (published in the February issue of the American Heart Association's "Circulation") studied the effects of sun-dried raisins in a diet high in fiber and low in saturated fats on adults with elevated cholesterol levels. The study revealed that subjects who followed the diet lowered their levels of LDL ("bad" cholesterol) and total cholesterol -- reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Over 50 percent of the adult population in the United States today suffer from elevated cholesterol levels (above 200 mg/dl).

3. "We found a significant, positive correlation between consuming sun-dried raisins and a change in some colon cancer risk factors," said Gene Spiller, Ph.D., lead study author and researcher at the Health Research and Studies Center in Los Altos, California. "Eating as little as two servings of raisins resulted in beneficial changes in colon function that may help combat the estimated 130,000 new cases of colorectal cancer expected to be diagnosed this year."

“Wow! I'm sitting here, munching on these DELICIOUS Organic Raw Cacao Goji Energy Squares (smart decision, putting them on top ;) while looking over my order. The dried fruit is amazingly moist and succulent. My entire family and I are about to recreate Emily Dickinson's Black Forest Cake from the 1800's... something our family has wanted to try for a very long time. Only not until NOW have we found dried fruit with quality acceptable enough to undertake such a grand adventure! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU NutsOnline Family!!! From the deepest part of our eagerly anticipating selves! (We'll let you know how it turns out...)

Gratitude for making our dream possible,
Johnathan Myers and Family”
