By helping to clean out your digestive tract, and power your brain, this high energy smoothie will give you everything you need to be productive and actually get things done. It contains ingredients, like bananas, that help hold your energy and sustain it throughout the day. It is also loaded with mineral and chlorophyll-dense leafy greens to help sweep out the digestive tract and make way for more energy dedicated to the brain.
Living plant-based fibre keeps your colon clean, and prevents accumulation of debris and waste matter that keeps you from getting a pudgy, bloated abdomen. Heavy junk foods and animal products create fermenting and putrefying waste matter in the colon, which seeps into the bloodstream and reaches the brain, creating anger, irritation, brain-fog and depression. Our gut is closely linked with how energetic we feel throughout the day, and how our moods play out. Keeping the colon clean with whole, raw, living plant foods will ensure a healthy GI tract, a better functioning brain, and thus, a better functioning YOU!
