Anti-aging Benefits of
Avocado – One of the Perfect Foods, this ‘olive oil of the Americas’ fights free radicals and its oil helps to preserve the structure of cells and prevent them from aging. My baby and I eat one per day.
Mint – This tasty and oft overlooked herb helps cleanse the blood and eliminate toxins.
Coconut Oil – Stay tuned for my next article this week (an ode to coconut oil). It is lengthy so prepare yourself.
Mango – Mango is rich in all vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C), minerals, proteins, carbohydrates (including sugar) and fiber. Their high fiber content helps the elimination of toxins. They are one of the best sources of quercetin, betacarotene, and astragalin. These powerful antioxidants have the power to neutralize free radicals throughout the body. Ailments like heart disease, premature aging, cancer and degenerative diseases are due to these free radicals that damage the cells.
Almond Milk – Almonds are rife with high doses of Vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, iron and phosphorous. You will also get a shot of copper, zinc, niacin and selenium. All of these vitamins, nutrients and minerals boost healthy, elastic skin – as well as your hormones.
Make the smoothie and drink it before you’ve eaten anything else. Allow one hour to absorb before eating something else.
