The fruits and vegetables we chose for this month's Energy Boost were: Pineapple, Mango, Ginger, and Spinach.
Pineapple, besides being a good source of antioxidant vitamins, iron and magnesium, is an excellent source of bromelain, a set of digestive enzymes that degrade protein bonds - an essential process for digestion. Since digestion is one of the most energy-consuming physiological processes, eating pineapples helps to save energy for other functions.
Mango is a fruit rich in B vitamins, essential for the metabolic reactions that produce energy for the whole body.
Ginger is also essential to facilitate and increase digestion and that is why it has been used for centuries for digestive problems and as an excellent tonic for general energy.
Spinach is an excellent source of coenzyme Q10, essential for energy production, physical performance, and slowing down the aging process. Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant that is synthesized by our cells, but its ingestion through food is essential.
The combination of these 4 ingredients makes this smoothie a perfect Energy Boost, ready to provide nutrients and energy that we need to face the day.
For this month's Brain Food we chose Mango, Pineapple, Tangerine, and Ginger.
Mango is an excellent source of vitamin C which, having a strong antioxidant action, prevents damage and aging of gray matter, as well as other body structures. Vitamin C can be an important ally in the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases.
Pineapple is a good source of tryptophan which is a precursor to serotonin, a hormone responsible for improving mood and helping to combat more depressive states.
Citrus fruits like Tangerine are well known for their content of vitamin C and other antioxidants. They have the particularity of being able to act specifically on the central nervous system and brain cells, preventing the action of free radicals and improving communication between neurons, which makes their consumption essential for the prevention of dementia.
Ginger stimulates blood circulation and is rich in gingerol, a substance that helps to dissolve blood clots, making it a good preventive of stroke.
These 4 ingredients make the Brain Food smoothie a perfect drink to increase concentration and look after our brain health.

Red Grape is one of the best sources of resveratrol - a phytonutrient with an extraordinary antioxidant capacity. Several studies associate the consumption of resveratrol with the prevention of cancer diseases, lowering cholesterol and preventing skin aging.
The Vitamin C present in Orange is an antioxidant vitamin that fights skin damage caused by exposure to the sun and environmental pollution. In addition, it plays a key role in the formation of collagen, improving skin elasticity and reducing wrinkles..
Apple is rich in vitamins C, A and E. Vitamin C helps in the production of collagen supporting the maintainition of the firmness of the skin, preventing wrinkles and sagging.
