Dates and Their Superpowers

Dates and Their Superpowers

Arianna Grande thinks God is a woman, but we're pretty much convinced that God is a date. ⁠ ⁠That's why, dates - specifically our fancy shmancy dates of the highest quality - are the only thing we use to sweeten Send Bars.

That's right ladies and gents. ⁠ ⁠And here's why: ⁠ ⁠Dates are incredibly nutritious. Rich in protein and vitamins and minerals like magnesium, copper, manganese, iron, and B6 and vitamin K. ⁠ Dates are full of fiber. This helps to metabolize and slow absorb their natural sugar content, contributing to sustained energy, lower glycemic levels and no blood sugar crash. ⁠ ⁠

Dates are high in disease-fighting antioxidants, protecting your cells from free radicals.The powerhouse antioxidants found in dates (specifically flavonoids, carotenoids and phenolic acid) lower inflammation and have been studied for their potential to reduce the risk of diabetes, Alzheimer's, macular degeneration, heart disease and certain types of cancer. ⁠ ⁠

Dates promote brain health, bone health and organ health. ⁠ ⁠ Dates also contain compounds believed to mimic the effects of oxytocin, a hormone that arises when you hug someone for a long time. ⁠ ⁠ How's that for magical, mystical and all-powerful.

So why all this talk about dates? Because they are an essential component of Send Bars. Each of our superfood protein bar formulations begins with a blend of fresh, organic dates and smooth, creamy nut butters to create a caramel that serves as the base of our bars. Date caramel. I can say it slower if you like.... We then add special blends of superfoods, fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds, using real world flavors like cinnamon, bananas and cold pressed lemon oil to anoint you with energy, focus, stress support and vitality. 

So the next time you see a date, or you hear someone whisper "date caramel" ever so softly... please think of all the wonderful ways Send Bars gives you pleasure.
