Ingredients in One Bar

Organic Virgin Algae Oil

360mg DHA | 180mg EPA | 1000mg of Omega 3

Vegetarian, kosher, halal and a major allergen-free form of DHA and EPA, derived from non-genetically modified algae. DHA and EPA help support heart health as well as normal growth and development of our brains. Our brains are made up of 20% DHA, which must be replenished regularly. DHA and EPA both generate neuroprotective metabolites (Pidd PM 2007) and in double-blind, randomized, controlled trials, DHA and EPA combinations have been shown to benefit attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, mood disorders, dyspraxia, dyslexia, and aggression.

Clinical studies have shown the following cognitive benefits:

Organic Lichen Cholecalciferol

Vitamin D3 | 2000 IU

A 100% natural, whole food-plant derived form of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) from organic lichen. Cholecalciferol is absorbed and utilized by the body better than any other type of vitamin D. Vitamin D has been shown in numerous clinical trials to play a crucial role in strengthening bones (Geller JL 2008), fighting depression (Aranow C 2011), boosting immunity, and combined with tryptophan and DHA/EPA, boosts brain serotonin concentrations and helps prevent and possibly ameliorate some of the symptoms associated with ASD without side effects. Additionally, deficiency of vitamin D is associated with a substantially increased risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in older people (Littlejohns TF et al. 2014).  A low amount of Vitamin D is linked to a 70% increased risk for Alzheimer’s, whereas a serious deficiency is linked to a 120% increased risk for this debilitating disease.

Clinical studies have also shown the following cognitive benefits:

Organic Probiotic Cultures

Over 1 Billion Probiotic Cultures | Bacillus Coagulans GBI-30 6086

Probiotics have been shown to improve intestinal microbial balance and inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in the body, not to mention being the first line in defense for healing the gut in children with autism (Kang 2013). They can also transform toxic mercury compounds into metabolites passed through feces (Gerritson et al. 2011), one of the most important benefits for children with weak detoxification capabilities.

We use Ganeden BC30 a Kosher and Halal, patented, extensively clinically tested, gluten free, sustainable, naturally occurring, and non-GMO ingredient, and each bar contains more than 1 billion live probiotic cultures.

Organic Ground Sacha Inchi

Over 14 grams of Complete Protein | Tryptophan | Short Chain Omega 3

Found in a star shaped pod from the Amazon, this ancient Incan Superfood is the highest plant based source of short chain Omega-3 Fatty Acid. While Noggin Nosh is certainly not lacking in Omega-3’s, we happen to like sacha inchi for its high tryptophan content; it has a higher concentration than turkey. Tryptophan is the precursor to the ‘feel good’ neurotransmitter known as serotonin (Mostkowitz 2003). Studies have found numerous benefits including improved sleep (Bravo R et al. 2013), decreases in aggression, and improved social behavior. Sacha inchi is also rich in protein, essential amino acids, and antioxidants.

Organic Ground Aronia Berry

A Potent Dose of Anti-oxidants | ORAC score of 16,062

The aronia berry is quickly becoming a superstar in medical journals and among nutritionists. It is an exponentially more powerful antioxidant than acai, goji berry, and blueberry, and with more resveratrol than wine and chocolate combined. In fact, according to USDA testing, the aronia berry contains an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) score of 16,062 umol TE/100 grams, making its antioxidant concentration three times greater than that of the blueberry, acai berry, and blackberry, and 1.5 times greater than that of the blackcurrant and cranberry. Aronia berries also contain the highest levels of flavonoids such as anthocyanins (the pigment in the berry that gives them their dark purplish-black color – including superstars quercetin and the recent ‘press darling’ fisetin), and proanthocyanidins (plant-based super-antioxidants). Aronia berries are valued for their anti-inflammatory (Zapolska-Downar 2012), anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-diabetic, and anti-cancer fighting properties, and in addition to their abundance of polyphenols they are also rich in vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, folic acid, and minerals like potassium, iron and manganese

Organic Whole Dates

Natural Sweetener | Magnesium | Fiber | Potassium

A great source of selenium, fiber, calcium, iron, zinc, phosphorus, sulfur, potassium, B vitamins (thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate), vitamin A, vitamin K, copper, magnesium, manganese, dates are also conveniently a natural, healthy, and a low glycemic index sweetener.

* Note: Noggin Nosh bars have 14g of natural sugars from dates, which would be less than eating a fresh apple or a cup of blueberries. Just like the other ingredients that make up Noggin Nosh, the natural sugars that come from our organic dates were added not only for their sweet taste, but also for their own merits and to maximize the synergistic effect of the entire bar.

Organic Matcha Green Tea

ECGC | L-Theanine | Cetechins | Quercetin | 134,800 ORAC Value

Ancient rituals of Zen Buddhists in China consisted of consuming Matcha green tea powder; interestingly enough, the EGCG and L-Theanine found in this powder facilitate alpha brain waves that are also achieved during meditation. In fact, the EGCG found in Matcha green tea has 3 times the amount of EGCG than any other green tea. The reason for this high concentration is that the entire tealeaf is pulverized into a powder. In addition to EGCG and L-Theanine, it is brimming with other unique and powerful antioxidants.

Some of the other sought after ingredients in Matcha green tea include quercetin (reduces fatigue) and catechins (natural phenols that improves DNA replication and protect against environmental toxins). New research is showing that Matcha green tea can actually improve working memory (Schmidt et al. 2014). Working memory is now recognized by cognitive neuroscientists as the gateway to learning; stronger working memory leads to more ‘brain power.’ While there is some caffeine associated with Matcha green tea powder, the equivalent in a Noggin Nosh bar is less than a half of a cup of tea.

Organic Nutritional Yeast

Potent B Vitamin Source | Zinc |Magnesium | Fiber

Rich in all of the B vitamins, including B12, zinc, magnesium, fiber, protein, and all 18 amino acids. Free of dairy, soy, gluten and sugar, this nutty tasting powder is a nutritional powerhouse.

Organic Ground Tapioca

Fiber | Good Cholesterol | Potassium

A rich source of dietary Fiber, “good” cholesterol, and protein, tapioca contains members of vitamin B-complex, including pantothenic acid, folate, and B6. It also contains iron, manganese, calcium, copper, and selenium.

Organic Almond Butter

Alkaline Promoting | Biotin | Vitamin E | Manganese

Almond butter is a good source of protein, fiber, heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, B vitamins, vitamin E, and magnesium. It is also rich in choline, which is especially important in the health and development of the brain. Deficiencies in choline have been linked to memory problems.

There is also a notable amount of calcium and copper, both of which play a role in brain cell communication and keep your nervous system functional. Furthermore, calcium also aids in muscle function and maintains bones strength. Almond butter is alkaline (promotes alkalinity in the body), which help neutralize harmful acids.
