The fruits and vegetables we chose for this month's Energy Boost were: Red Grape, Pineapple, Plum and Spinach.
Red Grape is an excellent source of potassium, essential for the contraction and maintenance of muscle mass. The grape also has in its composition arginine, which is a libido-stimulating amino acid and good vital energy.
Pineapple is an excellent source of bromelain, a digestive enzyme that degrades protein bonds, an essential process for digestion. Since digestion is one of the most energy-consuming physiological processes, pineapple intake by facilitating this process helps to save energy for other functions.
Plum, like grapes, is a good source of potassium and rich in soluble and insoluble fiber and sorbitol, which help maintain a healthy intestine.
Spinach is very rich in nitrates, important substances for toning and muscle contraction. They are excellent sources of minerals such as iron, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, copper and manganese. In addition, they are also rich in coenzyme Q10, a molecule essential for energy production and to increase physical performance and slow the aging process.
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 Brain Food we chose Apple, Mango, Kiwi and Linseed.
Apple, Mango and Kiwi are excellent sources of vitamin C which, due to their strong antioxidant action, prevents damage and aging of gray matter, as well as other body structures. In addition, vitamin C is an important ally in the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases.
In addition to its richness of vitamin C, kiwi's consumption helps in the production of melatonin, which is a hormone necessary for restful sleep.
Mango is rich in vitamin B6 and glutamine, nutrients that improve memory and concentration. Its consumption increases the hormonal production of GABA, a neurotransmitter essential for the development of nerve cells.
Linseed is the richest plant source of omega 3, a compound with an extraordinary anti-inflammatory action.
These 4 ingredients make the Brain Food smoothie a perfect drink to increase concentration and look after our brain health.

The fruits and vegetables we chose for this month's Anti-aging were Apple, Persimmon, Tangerine and Red Grape.
Apple is a great source of vitamin C, flavonoids and tannins. These are phytonutrients that have a high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action, protecting cells against oxidative stress and premature aging.
Persimmon has excellent antioxidant potential as it is rich in vitamin A, C and E, lycopene and beta carotenes. In addition, it is also a source of calcium, magnesium, zinc and phosphorus.
Tangerine, in addition to being an excellent source of vitamin C, an extremely antioxidant molecule, is also very rich in vitamin E and some B vitamins that make tangerine special for hair health. In addition, it is rich in limonene, an essential oil with rejuvenating properties for the skin.
Red grape is rich in resveratrol, a special molecule for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, hepatoprotective properties. When it comes to skin health, resveratrol has been one of the most studied molecules by the cosmetic industry, as it has unique protective properties against cell aging.
This Anti-aging smoothie has the perfect combination of ingredients for healthy cell development.
