Supplements For Your Smoothie
Marie Crawford of Pulp Kitchen takes us through some of the health boosting supplements for your smoothie that juice bars offer as extras for adding to your juice blend. Marie suggests first ensuring that your supplements are suitable for you and checking with your health practitioner since things like pregnancy, high blood pressure and taking medication may cause some supplements to have adverse effects. Also consider dosage and make sure that you are taking the proper amount of these supplements per day. Some of the health boosting supplements that you might want to consider adding to your smoothie or juice blend include:
Flax Oil – Omega fatty acid
Spirulina – High in protein, amino acids, minerals and vitamins
Protein – Great for muscle building
Milk Thistle – Good for liver function
Ginkgo Biloba – Helps improve memory
