Why It's Good For Ya.

Grade B Maple Syrup is not only a delicious sweetener commonly used as a condiment for additional flavoring on food and for use in baking, but it's also a very healthy treat. In it's unrefined form, it contains a ton of nutritional content. Grade B Maple Syrup includes vast portions of these vitamins and a large amount of amino acids in a single serving. For this reason, it is preferred by health connoisseurs over many other table top condiments, such as, refined sugar, corn syrup alternatives, and other sweetner containing artifical supplements like aspartame. Grade B Maple Syrup is darker in color than other grades of syrup, and has a strong, slightly caramel tasting flavor. It is because of this strong flavor that it is also often used in cooking and baking, as well as flavoring special foods.

What Makes Grade B Maple Syrup
So Nutritious?

Grade B Syrup is dark and is usually yielded in the later seasons by collecting sap from maple trees. The reason for it's darker, thicker appearance is the different concentrations of sugars present both early and later in the season. Sap from the start of the season produces the palest syrup, while the later season creates the darkest and most rich syrups. Organic Grade B Maple Syrup also does not go through the same refinement process as commercial grade maple syrups. This artificial process strips many of the natural, essential nutrients out of it, as well as unnecessarily adding extra sugar and chemicals. These are just a few of the reasons why organic Grade B Maple Syrup is recommended for the Master Cleanse aka 'The Lemonade Diet'.

Nutrition and Health Benefits

Grade B Maple Syrup is an excellent source of the mineral Manganese, which is an essential cofactor in a great number of enzymes that help to produce energy and also support antioxidant defense. The oxidative enzyme 'superoxide dismutase' disarms free radicals within the mitochondria (the factories within our cells that produce energy) and requires 'Manganese' to operate. Just one ounce of Grade B maple syrup supplies up to 22% of the daily value for this mineral. Manganese also plays a significant role in eliminating fatty acids and cholesterol by being a catalyst in synthesis.

As well as being a great source of this wonderful mineral, it is also a terrific source of Zinc. Zinc not only acts as an antioxidant, but also an immune system supporter and is very beneficial to the function of the heart. Many immune cells depend upon zinc in order to function optimally. This mineral is a necessity for proper function of endothelial cells in the blood vessels and helps to prevent damage caused by oxidized cholesterol.

The vitamins present in pure Grade B maple syrup are PP (Niacin), B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B2 (Riboflavin), Folic Acid, B6 (Pyridoxine), Biotin, and Vitamin A. Vitamins are essential, organic nutrients that serve as vital helpers in cell function. Niacin participates in the energy metabolism of every body cell and is unique among the B vitamins in that the body can make it directly from protein. Two other B vitamins - pantothenic acid and biotin - are also very important in energy metabolism. Pantothenic acid was first recognized as a substance that stimulates growth. It is a component of a key enzyme that makes possible the release of energy from the energy nutrients. Riboflavin also facilitates energy production in the body.

Organic Grade B Maple syrup not only contains trace amounts of these vitamin and minerals, but also amino acids which are the building blocks of protein. Vitamin B6 has long been known to play roles in protein and amino acid metabolism. In the cells, vitamin B6 helps to convert one kind of amino acid, which the cells have in abundance, to another, which they need in larger amounts. Vitamin A is a versatile vitamin, playing diverse roles in vision, mantnance of body linings and skin, and immune defenses.
