What Is In The Paleo Diet Smoothie?
The Paleo Diet Smoothie ingredients are carrots, guava, spinach, tomato, water, and crushed ice.
Carrots – Carrots are a super-healthy root vegetable that are an excellent source of fiber. They are high in vitamin A, vitamin K1, beta carotene, potassium, and loaded with antioxidants. Carrots are most famous for promoting good vision, but also lower cholesterol and help protect against various forms of cancer.
Guavas – Guavas are a tropical fruit native to Central America that are amazingly rich in antioxidants. They are one of the richest food sources of vitamin C and contain significant potassium as well. Guavas have been shown to lower blood pressure, lower bad LDL cholesterol, relieve painful menstruation, and benefit digestive health.
Spinach – Spinach has long been a major staple of healthy eating. It is loaded with important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin A producing carotenoids, vitamin C, vitamin K1, calcium, folic acid, and iron. Studies have shown that the regular addition of spinach to one’s diet can help improve eye health, promote heart health, boost immune function, and make bones stronger.
Tomatoes – Tomatoes are a nightshade fruit native to South America. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K1, potassium, and folate, as well as beneficial plant compounds beta-carotene, chlorogenic acid, lycopene, and naringenin. Tomatoes are known to reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, lower LDL cholesterol, reduce blood clotting, and protect against sunburn.
