 Today I started my morning with this smoothie and I feel like a million bucks!  No wonder, since every ingredient blended into this beverage can benefit your body.

Health benefits:

Lemon –  Lemons contain citric acid, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, bioflavonoids, pectin, and limonene.  They promote immunity and fight infection.

Blueberries – According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, blueberries are one of the best sources of antioxidants.  These are substances that can slow the aging process and reduce cell damage that can lead to cancer.

Blackberries – Blackberries are a great source of ellagic acid, an antioxidant shown to protect the skin from damage from ultraviolet light.  Studies have also shown that ellagic acid may also repair skin damaged by the sun. Blackberries are also high in vitamin C that helps heal wounds, and may even lessen the appearance of wrinkles.

Mint – Mint helps in eliminating toxins from the body.

Avocado – Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C,K, folate, and B6.

Green Tea –  Green Tea is known for its potential to fight cancer and heart disease.  It has also known for lowering cholesterol, burning fat, preventing diabetes and stroke, and staving off dementia.

Honey –  Honey is known to increase athletic performance.  Ancient Olympic athletes would eat honey and dried figs to enhance their performance. This has now been verified with modern studies, showing that it is superior in maintaining glycogen levels and improving recovery time than other sweeteners.
