It’s no secret that your body needs the right vitamins and minerals to thrive. Maintaining proper nutrition is the key to healthy digestion, brain function, energy levels, and even weight management.
But the unfortunate truth is that eating healthy can be very time-consuming and expensive. It’s one of the reasons why so many Americans struggle to eat healthy. The cheaper, easier options are unfortunately often some of the most unhealthy.
That’s why we wanted to give you this easy smoothie recipe you can make right at home. It’s easy, with just a few ingredients, and best of all, it’s loaded with powerful vitamins and minerals your body needs to keep you on your feet.
Specifically, this smoothie is chock-full of antioxidants. Antioxidants are a certain type of mineral that can help protect your body from dangerous disease-causing particles known as “free radicals.”
These toxic free radicals are hiding in some of the most common products we encounter – household cleaners, plastics, even in the air we breathe.
That’s why antioxidants are so important. You need to protect your body from free radicals at all costs, and this smoothie will provide the antioxidants your body needs for the day. And this smoothie can help:
