Why You Should Choose Restart Energy Bites

They’re a convenient snack to grab on the go; since they’re made from natural ingredients with no preservatives we can say they’re the best snack to nourish your body between meals.

We make sure to provide you with 100% plant-based ingredients of high-quality nuts, seeds, oats, cocoa, maple syrup, dates, etc. You can enjoy them if you’re trying to lose or gain some weight, by eating the right amounts based on your goal.

I'll take you through each ingredient's health benefits and how they combine to give you a nutrition bomb.



1. Peanut butter

Peanut butter has a high protein, fiber, and fat content. Peanut butter consists of approximately 25% protein, making it an excellent source of plant-based protein. Protein helps you lose weight by feeling full and satisfied for a longer period of time. And also the high fiber content of peanut butter can reduce your hunger in opposite to other confectionery snacks, which aids weight loss.

Peanut butter has heart-friendly nutrients such as, monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, magnesium, niacin, and vitamin E. Half of the fat in peanut butter is oleic acid, which is a healthy type of monounsaturated fat found in olive oil in high quantities. A diet rich in nuts may be associated with a reduced risk of death from heart disease or other factors.

Peanut butter is indeed a great source of protein that is essential for muscle gain and recovery. Because of its high protein content, bodybuilders and athletes eat peanut butter as part of their diet. Not only is it important to maintain muscle to keep your strength, but it also helps to increase your metabolism. Generally speaking, the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn all day long, even while you rest.

Since peanut butter is very low in carbohydrates and high in protein, fat, and fiber it has no noticeable effect on blood glucose levels especially if it's without added sugar. It means that for those with diabetes it can be a great option.


2. Oats

Whole oats are rich in polyphenols, which is an antioxidant. These can help lower blood pressure levels by increasing nitric acid production and lowering inflammations. Oats are rich in beta-glucan, a form of soluble fiber, which helps in lowering the LDL “bad” cholesterol and total cholesterol.

It has also been documented that the breakdown and fermentation of beta-glucan oat fiber increase the diversity of gut bacteria. In effect, this may boost other digestive problems such as diarrhea, constipation, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

The beta-glucan found in oats can increase your feeling of fullness by delaying the time it takes for your stomach to empty food. Beta-glucan may also allow a hormone formed in the gut to be released, which can minimize the intake of calories and may reduce your risk of obesity.

After a meal, beta-glucan fiber can help prevent sudden increases in blood sugar and insulin levels. Oats can help reduce blood sugar levels, particularly in people with type two diabetes and who are overweight.

The beta-glucan in oatmeal, when mixed with water, forms a gel-like substance.

The high iron content of oats may explain why it is popular with women who breastfeed. Low levels of iron can reduce the supply of milk.


3. Chia seeds

Chia seeds are rich in antioxidants that prevent free radical production, which can destroy cells that lead to aging and cancer.

Only 28g of chia seeds have around 12g fiber, which is essential for weight loss as it delays the emptying of the stomach, hence you’ll feel full for a long period of time. Fiber also supports your intestine's friendly bacteria, which is essential to keep your gut healthy.

Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fats, which may reduce the risk of heart diseases by reducing LDL “bad” cholesterol, triglycerides (blood fats), plaques (arteries blockage). Heart attacks, and strokes.

Chia seeds have a good amount of protein; they’re about 14% protein compared to most plants, which is very high. Chia seeds are a great source of protein, particularly for people who consume little or no animal foods. Chia seeds, in particular, provide all nine essential amino acids and are therefore a high-quality plant-based protein.

Chia seeds can reduce insulin resistance and drop blood sugar levels following a high-carb meal and may help people with type 2 diabetes.


4. Maple syrup

The benefits of Maple syrup are significant in supplying beneficial antioxidants. The Pharmaceutical Biology medical journal found that pure maple syrup contains 24 different antioxidants.

Maple syrup can be seen as part of a healthy diet that helps prevent other diseases such as brain disorders, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or heart diseases.

Apart from potassium and calcium, maple syrup also contains zinc and manganese in pretty high amounts, which increase metabolism, immune function, and bone health.


5. Cocoa powder

Coco can decrease cholesterol and increase blood flow. Eating one serving of chocolate a day can reduce the risk of heart attack, heart problems, and stroke. Cocoa antioxidants can promote the growth of neurons, brain activity and increase blood flow to the brain tissue, which may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s diseases in older adults. Also, antioxidants in cocoa powder can kill cancer cells stopping them from growing, which gives them anti-cancer properties.

Coco can have positive effects on mood and depression symptoms by reducing stress and anxiety levels and improving calm, satisfaction, and overall psychological well-being.

Cocoa powder can help also in both weight loss and controlling blood sugar levels, which makes it a good choice for people with diabetes.


6. Dates

Dates are rich in fiber, which can help prevent constipation and control blood sugar. They are rich in a variety of vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants, all of which can offer health benefits from better digestion to decreased disease risk.

When consumed during the last few weeks of pregnancy, dates can promote and encourage natural labor for pregnant women.


7. Coconut

Coconut can reduce cholesterol levels and actually reduce the risk of heart disease, and belly fat. On top of that, coconut can control blood sugar levels. Coconut is also high in copper and iron, helping to produce red blood cells and contains selenium, an essential antioxidant that supports the cells.

Coconuts are pretty high in manganese, which is important for carbohydrates, proteins and cholesterol metabolism and bone health.


8. Almonds

Almond’s health benefits include lower levels of blood sugar, lower blood pressure, and lower levels of cholesterol. They also have the potential to reduce hunger and encourage weight loss, due to the high fiber, and protein contents. Because almonds are high in magnesium, will greatly enhance metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes.
