Eating well isn’t rocket science. We all know that a healthy diet is one with food that is full of nutrients, and as nature-based as possible. This means avoiding additives, processed foods, sugars and fats where possible, and many people also now choose to avoid gluten, wheat and dairy products. Tiger nuts are a natural and unprocessed raw food, and can play a major role, as part of a healthy balanced diet.

 

 

Tiger nuts are a truly amazing ancient superfood ! The ancient Egyptians believed that tiger nuts had healing properties, but more importantly, today the health properties and nutritional claims are backed by research and scientific evidence.

 

 

Dr.Axe explains here that studies have shown that tiger nuts may have the ability to fight bacteria in the body, boost the immune system, and even boost your sex life!
