Made with Turkish figs and all natural organic VitaCherry powder, this bar is absolutely delicious and packed with antioxidants and vitamins! VitaCherry powder is a highly concentrated source of anthocyanins, which are protective antioxidants as well as a flavanoid found in cherries and other fruits and plants. Researchers at the University of Michigan found that anthocyanins are especially effective in cherries, and are a great way to boost antioxidant levels and fight inflammation. Another study published by the Journal of Medicinal Food found that continued consumption of cherry juice promoted better sleep, suggesting that Cherry powder may have the same effect.
Turkish figs are also a major part of what makes this bar wonderfully unique. Aside from providing a tasty sweetness, figs are also one of the best sources available for dietary fiber; In fact, of the thousands of foods in the USDA nutrient database, figs make the top ten for fiber content. Figs are filled with potassium, manganese, and just one dried fig has the same amount of calcium as an egg!
