Mesquite powder and it’s benefits . . .

I use organic Loving Earths Mesquite Powder in a lot of my recipes. Organic mesquite powder is extracted from the seeds of the mesquite plant, which is found in the southwestern United States and parts of South America. It has a sweet caramel nutty taste. It’s not essential but it has so many health benefits I try to put it in smoothies, bliss balls, desserts and in warm coconut milk with honey as a winter drink.

The benefits are: It’s rich in a number of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It has high levels of calcium, which is important for maintaining healthy hair, skin, and bone strength. It also is a rich source of dietary potassium, which is essential for proper water balance and healthy heart functioning.

Organic mesquite powder is a great source of zinc, which is essential for a healthy immune system. It is also a fantastic source of lysine, magnesium, iron, and dietary fiber. There’s that magnesium again and from my previous post we all need more magnesium and this is a tasty way to get it!!
