Grain-free Granola Ingredient Health Benefits:
Ginger has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, thanks to its active component gingerol. It has been found to reduce oxidative stress, lower blood sugar levels, and alleviate indigestion and stomach discomfort.
Pepitas, or pumpkin seeds, are a rich source of antioxidants, iron, zinc, and magnesium. These nutrients have been associated with reduced inflammation, cancer prevention, and improved heart and bone health.
High-phenolic olive oil:
Rich in polyphenols such as oleocanthal, high-phenolic olive oil has been found to reduce oxidative stress, improve brain function, reduce cancer risk, reduce inflammation, and support heart health.
