Kardea Nutrition Bar
Whenever I look at the nutrition facts and ingredients in a bar I usually want just a little more of a nutrient than what it actually says – but I am very impressed with the nutrition facts and ingredients in this bar.
Only 150 calories
- 7 gms total fiber (3 gm soluble fiber – this fiber acts like a sponge and soaks up the cholesterol)
- 7 gms protein (to help fill you up and some heart-healthy soy protein too)
- 1 gm plant sterols (to help lower you LDL or “lousy” cholesterol)
I have personally seen some great with results when adding plant sterols to the diet to help lower cholesterol without using a statin drug. Some people are lucky enough to just manage cholesterol through diet, while others may have a genetic predisposition.
Now the big question, do they taste good? YES! I have had many people try them and agree the taste is definitely a winner. My favs are cranberry almond and chai spice (goes great with a cup of coffee for an afternoon snack).
This would be a great addition to your diet if you do want to lower you cholesterol – and if you don’t – great too!
