The name says it all!
from detoxifying coconut charcoal.
Charcoal is used to trap unwanted toxins in your body and quite literally pull them out. You can think of it as a vacuum for your body after a stressful or indulgent week, exposure to harmful substances or when you feel you’re in need of a little clean out. Charcoal treats gas and bloating and is often used in trauma centers to treat poison or drug overdoses. It’s pretty powerful stuff and something we can all benefit from on occasion.
from antioxidant rich blueberries. Containing a special class of antioxidants called anthocyanins that give them their rich blue color. Anthyocyanin is responsible for cellular protection and can aid a healthy blood cholesterol/ blood pressure level.
As always… I’m adding fun to my recipes! Mimicking just that ^ … this smoothie gets it’s brown and creamy color from theobromine rich cacao and fatty + fibrous avocados! Both aid nutrient absorption, hormonal balance, and longevity!
