HEALTH BENEFITS OF CRUMBLE BAR INGREDIENTS
Oranges are a great source of prebiotic fiber! This is the type of fiber that feeds your good gut microbes and helps them thrive! When those microbes are well nourish, your gut is able to heal itself and digestion runs smoother. Oranges are also a good source of potassium, which is essential for heart function, nerve function and muscle contraction.
Apples are rich in antioxidants that may help with the prevention of cancer, protect your lungs for oxidative damage and may lower the risk of heart disease. They contain a variety of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, potassium, vitamin K, manganese, copper and B vitamins! Apples are also high in water content making them a great hydrating and filling fruit!
