I get asked quite a bit as to why I have so much energy. I truly believe it is because of how I start my day. My morning smoothie fuels me and sets the tone for the rest of my day. So the next question I get is, "What's in your smoothie?" The health benefits I feel are all a combination of these ingredients. All of which are anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory and full of Omega-3's.
In addition, adding spices to your morning smoothie, like cinnamon (keeps your blood sugar regulated, avoiding the blood sugar roller coaster) and Turmeric are highly beneficial. Turmeric, is the most powerful herb on the planet for preventing disease. Dr. Axe shares more about the benefits of Tumeric here.
