There is nothing more satisfying in the summer than an ice cold smoothie to kickstart your morning. See below the benefits of each of the ingredients we’ve mixed into this smoothie…
Raspberries– not only do raspberries contain manganese (essential for healthy bones and skin) they also have a huge effect on your heart. The potassium and omega-3 fatty acids are essential to heart function and proven to lower blood pressure, preventing strokes and heart disease. Raspberries contain vitamin C which is vital to collagen production as well as preventing and repairing skin damage from the sun.
Dates– as well as being high in fibre, this dried fruit is also high in disease-fighting antioxidants:
- Flavonoids- reduces inflammation as well as the risk of diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and certain types of cancer.
- Carotenoids– promote heart health and reduce the risk of eye-related disorders.
- Phenolic acid– anti-inflammatory properties and might help lower the risk of cancer and heart disease.
Dates are also rich in nutrients that help to strengthen subcutaneous tissues (layer of tissue underneath the skin) which can help to improve skin texture and increase the softness of your skin.
Mango– this fruit is high in protective antioxidants as well as supporting eye, hair and skin health. Being high in antioxidants and phytochemicals means that mangos can help to protect the body from free radicals that damage the skin and increase pre-mature ageing.
