THE GREENEST, CLEANEST DETOX SMOOTHIE
ONE TART AND TROPICAL GREEN SMOOTHIE, FORMULATED WITH SERIOUS DETOXIFYING INGREDIENTS
The word "detox" is tossed around quite fervently this time of year, but what does it actually mean?
When it comes to this tart, verdant glass, it means bolstering the body's natural elimination pathways—like the liver and large intestine—to efficiently move out everyday chemicals, toxins, hormonal and metabolic waste from your system. This smoothie delivers by providing micronutrients your detox organs need, like glutathione (found in bok choy), vitamin C (found in citrus), and amino acids (thanks to the Organic Protein + Greens Super Powder). This Super Powder is arguably the cleanest protein powder on the planet, which includes 12 grams of grain-free, whole-food protein sources, along with cereal grasses and algae to alkalize and oxygenate your blood. Plus, the beauty of eating whole foods means you're receiving bioavailable nutrients and critical prebiotic fiber to support microbiome health and clear out pathogens, excess estrogen, and heavy metals.
The biggest nutritive punch comes from cilantro, though; this herb contains selenium as well as an important compound, linalool, which serves as a natural antimicrobial and can stimulate the liver's two phases of detoxification. Drink this in the morning to feel refreshed, and clean your cells from the inside-out. Most importantly, ditch the notion that detox is about deprivation, restriction, or counting calories—let nutrients flood your system instead.
