It is so wonderful to know that this delicious biscotti is perfect for your body nutritionally. No suffering afterward, either. Amazing.
Each ingredient is chosen carefully because of its anti-inflammatory compounds and ease of digestion- but many ingredients offer so many more benefits to the body from a medicinal point of view.
Anise, for example, has been used traditionally in disease therapy worldwide for a long time. It is highly valued for its anti-inflammatory, carminative effect for sickness, blood pressure control, hormone balancing, and immune-strengthening properties. These seeds are loaded with vitamins and minerals!
Even the flour (coconut) contains more protein and fiber than traditional wheat flour, which is hard to digest. Copper, Vitamin E, and Riboflavin-rich almonds bring energy, immune protection, inflammation reduction, brain health benefits, healthy skin and eyes, and good cellular function for growth and development. Almonds also support the growth of beneficial gut microbes.
Then, there are the bioactive components in sesame seeds! These tiny seeds contain so many powerful vital minerals, vitamins, phytosterols (sterols play an essential role in cell membrane structure), tocopherols (vitamin E), polyunsaturated fatty acids, and special fibers that lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and improve brain health!
They don’t just taste delicious! Enjoy every nutritious mouthful!
