The maximum nutritional supplements for smooties are:

Kamchatka berry and other berries (raspberries, strawberries, blackberries)

Kamchatka berry is a superfood that is worth supplementing with smoothies. Why? Because its fruits contain large amounts of antioxidants, thanks to which they have strong health-promoting properties, especially beneficial to our health and beauty. The numerous antioxidants present in the fruit reduce the formation of free radicals.

Kamchatka berry fruits contain a lot of vitamins, minerals and antioxidant substances such as polyphenols, flavonoids and vitamin C, which are extremely beneficial for the human body. This gives great opportunities to use this fruit as a dietary, preventive and even medicinal plant. Experts called its fruit “berries of eternal youth” because they found compounds in them that prevent cell aging.

Regular consumption of haskap berries has a positive effect on health prevention and counteracting civilization diseases. How is this possible?

Kamchatka berry has an anti-inflammatory effect at the cellular level, delays the aging of the retina and helps to heal retinal diseases, it can reduce the size of neoplastic tissue in some forms of cancer, it helps to lower blood pressure, and improves brain function. It has anti-diabetic, antibacterial and anti-adhesive (preventing infection) effects on the gums and gastrointestinal tract.

Interestingly – in Poland, the haskap berry is still relatively little known, because the old varieties of haskap berries were small and bitter. In contrast, the variety from the USA, Canada and Russia has excellent taste, is sweet and nutritious. In Japan, Kamchatka berry is used as a medicine and tonic.

Kamchatka berry is not only a great and valuable addition to smoothies. You can use its fruit in your kitchen in a variety of ways – both fresh and frozen. Frozen Kamchatka berry retains its taste and properties – it can be used to prepare, for example, wonderful homemade ice cream.

Green leafy vegetables: kale, spinach, chard

Green smoothies additives are a source of valuable vitamins and antioxidants. Not only leafy vegetables will work well in cocktails, but also broccoli, for example, due to their anti-cancer properties. Here you can read more about why you should add these ingredients to smoothies.

Green tea / tea is waving

Adding green tea to your smoothie is a valuable source of antioxidants. Smoothies can be made with green tea or matcha tea. It is enough to add brewed and cooled tea instead of water or plant milk.

Vegetable protein: pods (chickpeas, lentils, peanuts), nuts

Vegetable protein will make the cocktail more filling, thanks to which it will satisfy our hunger for a long time. Adding protein to your smoothies will also help control blood sugar levels. A good source of protein that can be added to cocktails are nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts), seeds (pumpkin, sunflower), sesame seeds, peanut butter, as well as pods and groats.

Quinoa is primarily a rich source of protein, but is also full of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. Quinoa also has a lot of fiber, folic acid and vitamin E. Also, groats such as buckwheat, barley and millet are good sources of vegetable protein. You can read more about plant sources of protein in this post: Plant sources of protein worth eating every day.
