YOU CAN CONNECT WITH BROOKE THROUGH VIBRANT ROOTS

Even the most organic cane sugar your body has to produce enzymes to break it down, which puts your body into an inflammatory state. Where honey, it’s still sugar, but it has all those enzymes—B vitamins, amino acids, like all the good things. It’s the right sugar for your body so your body doesn’t have to work so hard to break it down. Because it already has all those enzymes to be readily broken down by your body.
