Health Highlights:
Looking for a way to add a crunch and a healthy kick to your day? The Cinnamon Almond Granola won’t let you down. This granola is packed with wholesome components that will give your body the taste it’s craving and the nutrition it needs.

Almonds: These nuts are one of the best sources of vitamin E and can help stop plaque buildup in the arteries. Studies have suggested that a vitamin E rich diet may lower rates of heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease.[1]


Cherries: Dried cherries are a good source of vitamin C which can help increase collagen production. Increased collagen production contributes to building tissue strength and also helps shield the body from the harmful effects of free radicals.[2]


Cranberries:
 For women, urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common bacterial infections, and cranberry products, including dried cranberries, can actually help prevent it. Cranberries contain proanthocyanidins which inhibit bacteria’s ability to infect the cells that line the bladder. Because of this component, the bacteria is flushed out of the body, avoiding urinary tract infection (UTI) and some additional bladder issues.[3]


Honey:
 This is a powerhouse food that is full of beneficial properties. It is full of antioxidants that can help prevent cell damage. If used topically, it can act as a natural antibiotic and has been used to protect against infection in wounds and burns. Certain kinds of honey are also known to protect against even the most brutal bacteria like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).[4]
