Good nutrition is the foundation of good health, especially for children in their crucial developmental years. But this is not news to Danielle LiVolsi, a San Diego mother of two and founder of NuttZo, a nutritionally-dense, multi-nut butter company. In fact, Danielle’s longtime affection for nut butters helped inspire her to develop her superior line of organic butters that pack a punch both nutritionally and flavorfully.
The NuttZo story is an inspiring one, birthed from Danielle and her husband Kevin’s adoption of their first son, Gregory. A Ukrainian orphan, Gregory was severely malnourished and deficient in necessary vitamins. Having always had a heart for good health and nutrition, Danielle began working hard to provide Gregory with a diet rich in the things he was lacking.
Having grown up loving nut butters herself, Danielle decided to include healthy nut butters in her array of nutrition-boosting foods. At the time, there were no nut butters available that contained the diverse array of nutritional components she desired, so she began making a homemade nut butter blend, which would later be sold as NuttZo Original, using some of the richest superfood nuts and seeds available.
“NuttZo is one of my favorite creations because I love peanut butter and tree nut butters,” she passionately explained. And an amazing creation it is, packed with valencia peanuts, flax seeds, hazelnuts, cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, sea salt and vitamin E tocopherols.
One serving of NuttZo Original contains 650mg of alpha lipoic acid (ALA), or 50 percent of the Daily Value of ALA omega-3s. NuttZo is also 100% organic and is USDA Organic Certified.
At the same time Danielle introduced NuttZo Original, she and her husband also started a non-profit organization called “Project Left Behind” with a mission to help the more than ten million orphan children around the world who lack not only good nutrition but love, meaningful value systems and education.
“NuttZo is all about paying it forward, having a wonderful product that’s very healthy and nutritious, and, you know, changing the world one nut at a time,” she opined.
The LiVolsis have since adopted a second son who was also a Ukrainian orphan, and the couple continues to reach out to children around the world through Project Left Behind to provide them with “human touch, nourishment and surrogate nurturing tools.”
NuttZo has also just released a second nut butter called NuttZo PF which is peanut-free. NuttZo PF contains cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, hazelnuts, pumpkin seeds and sea salt, and it packs a whopping 970mg of ALA omega-3s per serving. Like the Original, NuttZo PF is USDA Certified Organic and contains no added sugar.
“When I put out a product, I want it to be exactly what I’d want to eat and feed my family,” emphasized Danielle about her NuttZo nut butters.
Not only is NuttZo a powerhouse of organic nutrition, but it is incredibly delicious as well!
