Wondering why this refreshing smoothie is healthy for you?
Cucumbers have an anti-inflammatory flavonol that can help protect your brain and prevent Alzheimer’s disease. They give you added hydration since they are made up of 95% water. Cucumbers can also help you with weight loss, because they are so low in calories and very high in water content.
Spinach is one food that is more healthy than kale! It contains a high amount of iron that is essential for maintaining muscle health as well as transporting oxygen throughout your entire body. Spinach also contains a compound that works as an appetite suppressant, which helps to reduce food cravings.
Matcha is loaded with antioxidants that can help your body fight against damage caused by free radicals. Matcha also increases your body’s metabolism to help you burn off excess fat at a faster rate all the while detoxifying your body.
Organifi Green Juice is also amazing. It contains all of your green superfoods that your body depends on each day such as moringa, mint, chlorella, spirulina, beets, matcha green tea, wheatgrass, ashwagandha, turmeric, lemon and coconut water. Wow! That’s a lot of healthy in one jar! Adding Organifi to this cucumber lime recipe helps to replenish your body with the essential nutrients that it needs.
