Amaretti Delights – Balance your energy with this nutrient-rich, plant-based treat

(NaturalNews) Are you aware that an energy imbalance can be the culprit for feeling over-stimulated or depressed and is one possible cause for those lags in the middle of the day? Do you know that an energy imbalance can be attributed to a lack of nutrient rich, plant-based foods in the eating regimen? This is a vital reason to consume foods from the plant kingdom as part of a healthy eating plan. The ingredients in our Amaretti Delights recipe are phytochemically fortifying to the body. In turn, this fortification helps to have favorable energy that is balanced, steadily released and long-lasting.

The almond nut is featured in this recipe, and it has within it three key nutrients that are essential in providing balanced energy for daily, all day, peak performance. Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and the two trace minerals of manganese and copper will put the health promoting pep in our step.

How do these three nutrients work to promote balanced energy?

When active in energy production pathways, riboflavin takes the form of either flavin adenine dinucleotide or flavin mononucleotide. In either one of these two forms, riboflavin attaches to protein enzymes called flavoproteins that allow oxygen based energy production to occur. Manganese and copper are essential cofactors of an oxidative enzyme called superoxide dismutase. Superoxide dismutase keeps our energy flowing by disarming free radicals produced within the energy production factories of our cells (mitochondria).
