 NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION

This blend is rich in antioxidants which help keep toxins out of the body as well as being anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is at the heart of many chronic conditions and premature aging in the body. Purple coloured foods also contain anthocyanin which has been positively linked to increased longevity, cardiovascular health and dementia. Anthocyanins are said to prevent the oxidation of cholesterol. If circulating cholesterol gets oxidised, it sticks to the walls of arteries causing their narrowing.

Other ingredients in this smoothie are various powders. Smoothies are a great way of getting superfood powders into the body. I often design a bespoke nutrition powder for clients which may include a variety of superfoods for immune support, heart health, memory & brain food etc., Spirulina, Chlorella, Wheat or Barley grass can be used in the absence of a bespoke powder. They provide a rich variety of b vitamins, protein and a cleansing quality to the smoothie. Cinnamon also included is an excellent digestive aid (carminative) and has anti-bacterial properties. Those with halitosis (bad breath) would benefit. Cinnamon also lowers blood sugar & has anti-fungal properties making it excellent for those managing glucose intake and those with yeast overgrowth. However it can be hard on the liver in high doses, therefore limit intake to 5g (1tsp) per day.
