When you make the effort to convert your body over to burning fat, into a state of ketosis, the last thing you want to do is spoil all the progress you’ve made, just because your low-carb, high-fat snack choices may be limited.
That’s exactly why Dr Mercola personally formulated the Mitomix™ Bars from scratch to contain:
- Only 2.6 or 4.9 grams of net carbs (depending on if you choose Chocolate or Double Chocolate)
- A whopping 14 to 16 grams of fibre per bar.
- A generous 10 to 11 grams of healthy fats, including MCT oil
- A wholesome blend of 11 certified organic, top-quality plant essentials with no genetically modified ingredients
Plus they are moist, chewy and delicious – just like homemade.
With a lineup of healthy ingredients in Mitomix™ Bars, you’ll be amazed at how so much value is packed into one bar. And you’ll be hard-pressed to find a bar that compares.
Fat-Burning Creates Profound Changes in Your Body That You May Not See – At Least Not at First
No doubt you’ve heard a lot lately about ketogenic diets. Perhaps you’ve even thought about trying one yourself.
If you’re struggling with weight or any other chronic health issue, you could benefit from taking control of your intake of sugars and carbs. And using high-quality fats to fuel your body instead of glucose.
Your body was designed to run more efficiently on fats than on carbs, so when you successfully shift over to what’s called nutritional ketosis, you optimise your mitochondrial function and your body’s ability to burn body fat.
Mounting research suggests nutritional ketosis – or the burning of fat for fuel – may be the answer to a long list of health concerns.
And, it appears to start with your cells’ mitochondria.
Your mitochondria are one of, if not the most important component of your cells. They supply over 90 percent of your body’s energy needs by converting the food you eat and the air you breathe into usable energy.
Most of your cells contain hundreds of them – some even contain thousands, especially your body’s high energy-demanding heart and brain cells.
Here’s what’s vital for you to know: As you age, your body produces fewer mitochondria. And when you burn carbs for fuel, your cells’ mitochondria suffer more damage from free radicals caused by reactive oxygen species, or ROS.
When a significant percentage of your mitochondria stop functioning properly, your health can falter and leave you vulnerable to chronic disease.
Clearly, to optimise your health, you want to do everything possible to help repair and boost your mitochondrial health. Diet is one of your most important choices.
Why You Want Fibre – And Lots of It.
Sourced from plants, fibre supports your health in numerous ways:
- Helps keep your bowel movements regular
- Nourishes your healthy gut bacteria, which in turn supports normal immune function and brain health
- Supports healthy normal cholesterol and blood sugar levels
- Makes you feel “full” so you’re likely to eat less
- Also helps slow down your digestion so you feel fuller longer
- Supports your body’s detoxification processes
- Helps reduce the absorption of carbohydrates
- Helps “scrub” the lining of your colon to aid in the removal of wastes
Researchers have found that a diet high in fibre is associated with a lower risk of premature death from any cause.
There are two types of fibre – soluble and insoluble, and both are valuable for your health. Many high-fibre whole foods, such as fruits and vegetables, seeds and nuts contain both types.
Soluble fibre absorbs water and turns into a gel-like mass in your gut, and helps slow down your digestion. This type of fibre ferments in your gut and nourishes your healthy gut bacteria.
Sources include nuts, seeds, berries, beans, apples and cucumbers.
Insoluble fibre is the type of fibre found in leafy vegetables, celery and green beans. This type of fibre doesn’t break down during digestion, but rather, binds to toxins and aids in their removal.
Here’s a fascinating way that both types of fibre can work together to support your gut: Insoluble fibre forms a latticework in your intestine and the soluble fibre plugs the holes!
Because fibre is so important for optimal health, we recommend getting at least 35 grams of fibre from whole foods each day – the more, the better.
