"This is a superfood near and dear to my heart," Gelsomin says. "They actually beat out berries
for their antioxidant content, which is crucial in helping to fight diseases
and combat aging, keeping you looking and feeling young." They do have their
geriatric reputation for a reason, she says, they are also rich in fiber and contain natural sugar alcohols which help those that suffer from constipation. They are
also a portable sweet snack and pair wonderfully with dark chocolate. "I'll
sometimes recommend that people mix some into brownie batter."
