I’m really liking these smoothie ideas coming from Biocare at the moment so here’s another one for you. This time, a blast of Vitamin C and some liver support. A green smoothie that is power-packed but tasty! Not TGF as they contain citric acid and xylitol from corn. You could easily substitute stuff from the TGF Supplement Master List though using the powder from capsules etc.
Here’s the last smoothie in case you missed it. I would rotate these smoothies, having one most days; it will pay dividends for your gut, liver and overall health.
Are you looking for a simple way to help cleanse your body on a daily basis, but find it impossible to make a green smoothie which actually tastes nice? We have had our fair share of smoothie disasters as well, so we would like to share with you our tried and tested green smoothie recipe which you are sure to love and feel motivated to add to your daily morning routine.
Better still, we have super-charged its nutritional content with our Cleanse NutriPowder which we have just launched as part of our new NutriPowder range of plant-based nutrient powder blends. It is packed with a wide range of plant extracts to support detoxification and antioxidant functions, ranging from everyday ‘superfoods’ such as broccoli, artichoke, apple, beetroot, coriander seed, and celery, to the more glamorous ones, including dandelion and turmeric root, alfalfa, spirulina, broken cell wall chlorella, and milk thistle, all of which have been well-researched and shown to be beneficial to health in a variety of different ways. We have also added pea protein powder to provide the amino acids required to support several detoxification pathways, improve satiety, and support balanced blood glucose levels, together with coconut water to increase your intake of electrolytes which are important to energy and muscle function for example.
When you feel in need of an extra ‘boost’, say if you are going through a particularly busy period at work or generally feel a bit run down, you can also add a daily dosage of our Vitamin C Rosehip Complex. This product provides 1g buffered vitamin C per daily dosage alongside zinc to support the immune system, manganese to contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress, as well as rutin, hesperidin, bilberry, and rosehip.
