The Wondrous Health Benefits of Carob
Carob is a wonderful alkalizing food packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It is especially high in:
- vitamin K
- vitamin E
Free radical damage is real. It can cause premature aging, cancer, and it damages and weakens cells. The polyphenols found in carob will neutralize free radicals and protect your body from degenerating.
Carob has been proven to prevent cancer, manage diabetes, improve digestion and also support your cardiovascular system.
Carob is also beneficial for weight loss. The fiber in carob has been found to suppress your hunger hormone (ghrelin) and thus prevent overeating.
Consuming carob along with following a healthy diet and fitness program will provide an added boost for achieving your weight loss goals.
