Top Smoothie Ingredients for Longevity

Posted on

Smoothies can be an easy and delicious snack to add to your routine. If the smoothie will also keep us looking and feeling young — even better! Now we might not have found the Fountain of Youth, but these ingredients will have a major impact on your health, more specifically, longevity and vitality. 

  1. Blueberries: An all-around powerhouse berry, blueberries are delicious and high in fiber.

  2. Greek Yogurt: If you are reaching for a smoothie as a meal replacement, you need to make sure you are packing it with sufficient protein. Greek yogurt is a wonderful source of protein while still providing calcium, essential nutrients, and probiotics.

  3. Beans: I know it sounds weird to add beans to your smoothie, but don’t knock it until you try it! We recommend mixing white beans with vanilla bean for a vanilla-flavored smoothie, or black beans with pure cocoa powder for a chocolate-flavored smoothie. 

  4. Bee pollen: Bee pollen serves as an antioxidant to promote cellular health, and it is also thought to boost the immune system, relieve inflammation, and boost liver health.

  5. Spinach: Spinach is extremely nutrient-dense and can help boost longevity.
