Chia Seeds

  • Highest Omega-3 source content in nature – higher than salmon
  • Balances and stabilizes blood sugar level by slowing down the level at which glucose enters your bloodstream

Maca Root (superfood)

  • Works as an adaptogen which means that it responds to different bodies’ needs individually. If you’re producing too much of a particular hormone, maca will regulate the production downward. However, if you’re producing too little, it’ll regulate the production upward.


  • Strong antibacterial properties killing cavity causing bacteria in the mouth
  • Myristicin found in nutmeg inhibits an enzyme in the brain that contributes to Alzheimer’s disease and used to improve memory

These are only a few of the benefits that make this smoothie so great!
