Just How Good Are Smoothies For You?
A. Your Brain On Smoothies
Natural sugars provide the brain with much needed energy allowing it to focus better, recall information more easily and function at an elevated capacity overall.
Protein also plays a crucial part in brain function by providing your body with amino acids, which are used to make neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters help your brain communicate and send out signals to your body, and are essential to brain health. Protein helps to regulate your moods, aids in concentration, memory and learning.
B. Your Muscles On Smoothies
Protein powder is great for preventing loss of muscle mass and preventing the onset of osteoporosis.
Our smoothies, which are made of our protein powder combined with natural sugars from our smoothie purees, are perfect for after the gym. The natural sugars help to quickly shuttle protein and glycogen into depleted muscles to aid in post-workout recovery.
The casein in our protein powder provides your muscles with fuel for several hours after your workout as well to make sure you are fully recovered for your next date with the gym.
C. Your Blood On Smoothies
Whey protein has shown to be effective at lowering blood pressure in individuals with elevated or slightly elevated blood pressure.
It may also be effective at lowering cholesterol over time as well as increasing blood flow when consumed before exercise.
D. Your Stomach On Smoothies
Our combination of whey and casein in our protein powder means that you feel fuller for longer because whey is digested relatively quickly while the casein takes longer to digest.
Protein powder aids in helping you to consume fewer calories and speed up your metabolism at the same time.
Combined with natural sugars from fruit, smoothies provide a steady release of energy into the body.
