Powerful Healthy Smoothie
Smoothies can offer all kinds of different nutrients your body needs and craves. We have a smoothie recipe today that supports so many different functions, we call it POWERFUL because that’s what it is! It has superfood ingredients like blueberries, which are low in calories and high in nutrients.
Did you know that blueberries contain fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and Manganese? It’s hard to find another berry with as many health benefits as the blueberry! Blueberries are a star ingredient in many of our smoothie recipes because of this. They contain a very high level of antioxidants, which can protect your body from things like free radicals. It hasn’t been fully proven, however blueberries may help lower cholesterol levels when eaten often enough. What a fantastic ingredient!
We love bananas in our smoothies for many reasons. One reason is the incredible flavor and taste. If you need some sweetness added to your powerful healthy smoothie, chances are a banana can do the trick! Bananas are truly an incredible power food. They are rich in fiber, and contain Vitamin C, Potassium, Magnesium, and so many other great nutrients.
Our liquid supplement ingredient in this smoothie is our Nascent Iodine. Did you know that Iodine is an essential mineral? Your body can not make iodine on its own, but it needs iodine in order to function. That means you have to consume it in order for your body to have what it needs. Our liquid Nascent Iodine product is the perfect solution! It’s unflavored, and the perfect addition to just about any smoothie, coffee, or tea recipe. The benefits of this supplement are simply incredible! It can provide thyroid support, cognitive support, and immune system support. Adding iodine to your diet can help your body make thyroid hormones which, in turn, can help reverse the effects of a slow metabolism. At low iodine levels, your body may store food as fat rather that be burned as energy. This may lead to weight gain.
