Smoothie Benefits :
Great source of healthy fats for our cells! This is important for cells to communicate and function. Our cells are made out of fats after all, so let’s take care of these little guys. Cells need to let the nutrition in and get the nasty waste out. When cells don’t get healthy fats, cells get damaged and cannot function properly leading to all kinds of crappy waste getting stuck inside of your body, inhibiting nutrition from coming into your cells too.
When cells are happy, they can boost the health for the rest of your body. The Green Quintet Smoothie will enhance eye health, cardiovascular health, sexual health, brain health. It will also aid in preventing cancer as well as provides anti-inflammatory effects. If our bodies produce too much inflammation, it causes scarring and plaques, i.e., hardened arteries, adhesions and blockages!
Not only does it provide your body full of essential nutrients, it is refreshing, cool, and perfect for a spa day! Want to get kids to enjoy it? It’s super delicious as it is, but if you want to make a yummy dessert, make pudding pops out of it!
