If you need some help fighting off a virus, such as a cold or flu, put this delicious Exotic Warrior Smoothie to work for you. Blueberries and lemons produce a beautiful jeweled tone for this dazzling smoothie. Vitamin C has been shown to help reduce the length of a cold or flu. Both blueberries and lemons are packed with vitamin C and other nutrients for an exotic virus fighting combination. Honey and cinnamon is an old cold remedy that has proven health benefits. Adding honey and cinnamon also gives a full, rich flavor that compliments the blueberries and lemon. Add to this cinnamon and maca root powder and you pack a powerful, full flavored anti-viral punch.
While the Exotic Warrior smoothie can be made without maca root powder, it’s always a good item to have on hand. It is known for increasing vitality and is considered a super food, along with chia seeds, which add some fat to allow proper absorption of the vitamins.
Altogether this smoothie is loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and flavonoids that may help fight off illness and increase health. The body readily recognizes food based sources of vitamins and minerals and is able to use them more effectively than single compound supplements, such a vitamin C tablet. All of these ingredients have a wide variety of nutrients that may not only help fight a cold or flu, but are part of a healthy diet. Overall the Exotic Warrior Smoothie is healthy, beautiful and delicious.
