Smoothies are an excellent way to get the nutrients you need on the go. But what ingredients are the best to mix your favorite protein powders with? Many individuals feel that packing a ton of fruits into a smoothie is the best way to go, but fruits contain a lot of sugar that may outweigh the benefits of the smoothie. Here’s how to make a perfect smoothie, full of important antioxidants and nutrients.

The Brain Boost Smoothie

Chocolate is one of nature’s most powerful super foods. But the benefits of chocolate are generally reversed when milk, cholesterol from milk solids, and/or an enormous amount of refined sugar are added. Cocoa is naturally bitter in flavor so chocolate bars require a lot of sweetening. When cocoa is cooked, it becomes even more bitter. It its natural form, it contains a wide variety of minerals, vitamins and antioxidant flavonoids that offer great health benefits.†

TRUEbyInVite® Clarity contains all of the nutritional components that occur naturally in pure dark chocolate, without the saturated fat, sugar and calories found in chocolate bars. It also includes Grape Seed Extract, antioxidants that are excellent for supporting healthy circulation, heart health, and blood pressure already within a good range. These are also very powerful and extremely safe antioxidants. Cocoa is loaded with ingredients found in a healthy brain, supports memory functions, and may help click your mood up a couple of levels, while Grape Seed works as an antioxidant defender in the brain.†

The Heart Healthy Endurance Booster

Beets are a powerful superfood. They are excellent in supporting the heart, circulation, physical performance and endurance during exercise. Beets are a source of many heart health constituents including natural nitrates, reddish-yellow water soluble pigments known as betalains, carotenoids, Trimethylglycine (an important betaine) and fiber; beets are excellent for heart and circulatory health and physical performance.†

Beetroot helps support healthy blood pressure and cardiovascular-circulatory health for many reasons. The reddish-brownish betalains are powerful antioxidants that protect the walls of arteries. Trimethylglycine detoxifies homocysteine; elevated homocysteine is implicated in clogged arteries. The natural nitrates convert to nitric oxide which is responsible for healthy blood flow for heart and circulatory system health and for support during physical activities.†
