This sweet and savoury turmeric green smoothie heals deep. It contains the nutritional powerhouse kale, which is high in vitamin K, A, C and lutein, a carotenoid that helps improve eye health.
Oranges are a great addition, too, because they cleanse the liver and the citric acid helps break down any mucoid plaques in the lymphatic system, circulatory system and digestive tract.
Tomatoes contain the antioxidant lycopene, which has been shown to help benefit people suffering from asthma, and turmeric is one of the most powerful medicinal herbs on the planet.
Avocado and chia seeds are added to this smoothie to help give it a grounded, balanced flavour, and also because healthy fats help improve lycopene absorption, as well as improve the absorption of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.
