The Vitality smoothie is a blend of pineapple, banana, spinach, coconut milk and bluegreen algae. Our ingredients are sourced locally, and the final juice is raw and unpasteurized.
Pineapple provides more than just its classic tropical, sweet taste. It contains the naturally occurring element manganese and the enzyme bromelain. Manganese aids in developing strong bones and connective tissue, and bromelain breaks down protein, helping aid digestion and inflammation.
Bananas contain bioactive compounds that promote health and body function. They are high in potassium, which is essential for nerve and muscle function and can help offset the harms of excess sodium. Additionally, they contain vitamins C, which supports immunity and healthy skin, and B12, vital co-factor in the production of serotonin.
Spinach supplies an abundance of nutrients including oxalic acid, Vitamin E, and iron. Oxalic acid is beneficial in the cleansing and healing of the intestinal tract. Vitamin E is important to stimulate a healthy immune system, improve eye health and keep your brain cells healthy and active. Finally, the high iron content in spinach is critical in helping create energy.
As the most widespread fruit on Earth, the coconut has been a part of the human diet for millennia. They are packed with micronutrients, which play vital roles in helping the antioxidant defense system of the human body. Coconut is high in minerals such as potassium (a principal electrolyte),phosphorus (contributes to bone and tissue health), and magnesium (maintains healthy immune system, as well as nerve and muscle function).
With evidence tracing back to the Aztecs, consumption of Bluegreen algae by humans goes back centuries. Its nutritional value is optimal for human health, with it being high in nutrient minerals like iron and protein. Its properties have a multitude of benefits, including long-term fatigue, exercise performance, and combating seasonal allergies. Bluegreen algae also contributes to the prevention of metabolic and inflammatory diseases.
