Healing Super Green Smoothie

Here is a super healthy green drink that contains Wheatgrass Powder, Moringa Powder and Maca Powder. Add 1-2 cups of filtered water and one scoopful of each and place into a blender (I use the Nutri-Bullet), add ice and blend away! The health benefits are amazing!

Benefits of wheat grass: Wheatgrass stimulates the activity of human growth factors! Wheatgrass is a natural source of vitamins and minerals (a few of which are antioxidants) including vitamins A, E, C, K and B6, Calcium, Selenium, Magnesium and Iron. Wheatgrass is widely acknowledged as one of nature’s existing super foods. When grown in organic soil wheatgrass retains 82 out of the 92 minerals that are present in soil and 1oz of wheatgrass juice is said to contain the same amount of nutrients as 2.5 lbs of green vegetables. In addtion to that, wheatgrass can assist wound healing and skin recovery. Of course there are lots more benefits you can research.

Benefits of Moringa Powder: Moringa plant is beginning to gain more popularity as a new “superfood” for its highly nutritious profile and powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and tissue-protective properties among many other health benefits.

Benefits of Maca Powder: Maca (Lepidium meyenii) is the root of a vegetable native to the Andes region of Peru. Known as "Peruvian ginseng" (even though it doesn't belong to the same botanical family as ginseng), maca is consumed as a food and is said to boost energy and libido. Also good as an anti-depressant.
