Vanilla is very often recognised as people’s favourite ice-cream flavour or a great help in the kitchen when baking, however vanilla and its general properties offer so much more benefits to your overall health than purely taste-based pleasure. Vanilla is a climbing kind of orchid, coming from multiple tropical places, and the flavour is extracted from the pod of the plant,  also known as beans.  

Its beneficial properties have been recognised since the times of Montezuma. Apart from its obvious flavour benefits, vanilla is also a great antioxidant, antidepressant and is proven to have impactful antibacterial properties, which means vanilla can help you prevent infection. 

Several studies show, that vanillin, the extract from vanilla, together with vanillin ethyl and vanillin acid, are able to help fight  bacterias from the Cronobacter species, known to can cause severe  infections in people with weakened immune system. 

Besides these powerful properties, vanilla is also full of magnesium, potassium and antioxidants, and that is why HEAL, with its touch of vanilla, could be a great way of incorporating this superfood into your daily diet.
