Who ever Thought the two Words “Bread” and “Healthy” would ever go together?
Next time you’re food shopping opt for this nutrient dense, sprouted grain bread. This bread contains all 9 essential amino acids that your body needs to repair and grow. Two slices of this bread gives you 8 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber, 16% of your daily Vitamin B1 requirement(Thiamine), 16% of Phosphorus, 12% of Magnesium, 12% of Niacin, 8% of Vitamin B6, 8% of Iron and 8% of Zinc. Here I have listed the vitamins in this bread and how they play a role in your body:
Thiamine – Helps the body convert carbohydrates into energy and helps metabolize(break down) fats and proteins (**plays same role as Niacin**).
Phosphorus – Helps build strong bones and teeth (much like Calcium).
Magnesium – Regulates muscle and nerve function (Especially important for exercisers), blood sugar regulation (great for diabetics), blood pressure, making protein, bones and DNA.
Vitamin B6 – Same role as Thiamine and Niacin except it helps the body make hormones such as Serotonin and Norepinephrine, which assists your body clock (when your body wakes up and when it winds down and sleeps).
Iron – Helps distribute oxygen and red blood cells from your lungs and throughout your body. Iron also improves energy, focus, gastrointestinal processes, your immune system and the regulation of your body temperature.
