These balls of bliss score low on the glycemic index and provide a very slow release of energy, helping maintain optimum blood glucose levels, curbing any cravings for sweet things. The nuts provide an abundance of healthy fats and fibre for good gut health. The flax seeds are a great source of Omega 3 which your body cannot make and what most people are deficient in. Omega 3 is essential for our brain, hormones and general health.
