4 Reasons to Enjoy a Stress Reducing Cool Berry Smoothie:
1. Lettuce is high in Vitamin A which is excellent for the skin, it’s also high in fiber flushing out excess toxins from your body making you look healthier and more vibrant. It also has a calming effect on the body and can promote rest and relaxation.
2. Blueberries are high in anti-oxidants which help protect your skin from wrinkles and aging. Throw out the toxic skin creams and get your smoothie on! (And no, blueberry supplements will not be sufficient, get the real thing!).
3. Cucumbers are notoriously known for their skin healing properties that include reducing inflammation and cleansing the body with their high water and fiber content. They can even help with eczema!
4. Coconut water is the only liquid on the earth you can inject into your blood stream directly. In World War II, it was used on the battlefield for blood transfusions. Coconut water acts as a carrier, bringing more nutrients to your cells so it’s a great addition to smoothies which are already packed with nutrition.
