Smoothie Guide 101: What Are Your Ingredients Doing for You? 

Check this out…

Spinach and kale

These green leafy veggies are great sources of antioxidants, calcium, vitamin A (beta-carotene), vitamin K, iron, manganese, zinc, folate, and selenium. The fiber helps to cleanse the colon and bind to toxins.

Avocado

The most abundant nutrients include vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, potassium, and vitamins B5, B6. They contain more potassium than bananas, are loaded with fiber, and are high in antioxidants, including lutein and zeaxanthin. They are also a great source of healthy fats.

Cucumber

Amazing source of fluid to hydrate the skin. It also contains silica, a trace mineral that helps strengthen our connective tissues. The flesh is rich in vitamins A and C as well as folic acid. The skin contains fiber and many minerals including magnesium, molybdenum, and potassium.

Celery

Very alkaline and full of calcium, magnesium, and potassium. It is also a good source of vitamins B1, B2, B6, and C. Celery is a powerful detoxifier and colon cleanser.

Lemon

Extremely alkaline and a fantastic source of vitamin C. They also help absorb the iron found in other foods, like kale or spinach! Lemons also help to detoxify by supporting liver function, destroy free radicals and toxins, and flush out bacteria.

Banana

Bananas not only add a great creamy texture, but they are also rich in vitamins C and B6, potassium, dietary fiber, and manganese.

Parsley

A great source of vitamin K, potassium, and many B vitamins. Parsley is high in iron and antioxidants. It is thought to be helpful in detoxifying the blood of heavy metals, like mercury.

Cilantro

A powerful, natural cleansing agent, thought to be very effective in detoxification of toxic metals from the body. It is rich in many healing phytonutrients as well as many vitamins. It contains high amounts of calcium and potassium.
