I’ve been a bit under the weather lately…possibly Lyme’s disease or possibly a superbug that I can’t shake. Somedays I feel good, other days I feel as though I was plowed over by a Mac truck! Either way, I need to boost my immune system big time!
This superfoods smoothie is just the way to do it! My sister-in-law turned me onto wheat grass powder from a company named AmazingGrass. I am a huge fan of this company and have used many of their products in the past, but somehow I overlooked simple old wheat grass powder! Wheat Grass contains all essential animo acids, has a high alkalinity and contains phytonutrients and chlorophyll, all important for improved immune function and detoxification.
I also used blueberries in this recipe for immune support. Blueberries are a superfood all on their own! They are an excellent source of flavonoids, especially anthocyanidins. This component pushes blueberries to the top of the fruit and veggie line for antioxidant content. Researchers have found this antioxidant to prevent against Alzheimer’s disease by reducing the amount of oxidative stress on the brain.
I had a professor in college that would tell his students to eat blueberries before big exams…I thought he was joking, but I guess not!
