Mesquite is a deeply rooted tree that pulls up many nutrients, concentrating them in its seeds. This makes it loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants which help cleanse the body of impurities, stabilize blood sugars and lend many other healthful properties. It is high in protein, including many essential amino acids, calcium, zinc, manganese, iron, and dietary fiber.
