Celebrated annually from the 9th to the 15th of October, National Nutrition Week challenges each and every South African to make smart nutritional choices. There is a common misconception that eating healthy is expensive and complicated. But with KOO it is effortlessly easy!
It is rather apt, but one of the best ways for the Rainbow Nation to stay healthy is quite
simply to eat a rainbow! By including different coloured fruits and vegetables in your diet,
you'll get an optimal mix of vitamins, nutrients and minerals.
And when it comes to colour, crunch and healthy benefits you can't beet KOO Beetroot and KOO Cucumbers. For starters they are both smart choices for diabetics. Beetroot contains an antioxidant known as alpha-lipoic acid, which has been shown to lower glucose levels, increase insulin sensitivity and prevent oxidative stress-induced changes. Cucumbers on the other hand are low GI and contain a hormone needed by the cells of the pancreas for producing insulin. These are just some of the benefits of these nutritional superfoods!
A rainbow diet for a Rainbow nation, with KOO Beetroot and KOO Cucumbers there's a pot of nutritional gold at the end of the rainbow. So open up a jar of nutritional possibilities and reap the rewards.
