Smoothie.Staples.

Aloe vera, ginger (top), tumeric (right), chlorella (dark green), and bee pollen (yellow), are all packed full of nutrients that give a good jolt to the immune system to keep you strong so you don’t have to call in sick to work. Along with numerous vegetables and various ingredients, these are the staples I make sure to include in my daily smoothies because well…..I hate getting sick!

We all know and love aloe vera for its sunburn-healing powers. Did you know…..that when you ingest this succulent, it can support weight loss, detox, lower cholesterol, treat diabetes, fight against aging, benefit skin/hair, reduce symptoms of acid reflux, boost metabolism, help with ulcers/IBS, improve oral health, and has anti-cancer properties! So blend it up, and experiment with this amazing succulent!

Ginger and turmeric are botanically related to each other, and have been used for centuries not only for/in cooking, but to fight illness due to their medicinal properties. Ginger is well-known for combating morning sickness and nausea, but it can also be used for weight loss, reducing arthritis inflammation, blocking heartburn, fighting cancer/infection, clearing sinuses, protecting against radiation, fighting Alzheimer’s disease, clearing skin, and relieving menstrual cramps. Once you get past the spicy kick ginger root has…..the benefits are well worth it!
