My life changed when I started on the super green smoothie craze back when it was not a craze. I was suffering from severe constipation and bloating problems and general lethargy. The bloating was incredible. Some days I looked like I was 7 months pregnant and would be extremely painful. So I decided to take a look into my diet to see what i could do to improve my digeststion. That was when I started making green smoothies.
All I can say is that it changed my life. Not only do I no longer suffer from bloating or constipation, my energy levels sky rocketed. I felt healthy in my body. My hair started to grow faster, my nails were stronger and my skin started to glow.
I made sure to take the smoothie first thing in the morning on an empty stomach to aid the digestive process. As well as fill my body up with fruit and veggies first thing in the morning.
The main ingredient that I think boosted my health is Spirulina. Spirulina is an algae that has been named the most nutrient dense substance on the planet. If you are deficient in nutrients this is the supplement to take. It is high in plant based protein and iron, making it great for women like me who suffer from low levels of iron due to heavy menstrual periods.
I do warn that it can have a detox effect when it is first ingested. I suffered from the worst headaches for the first week as it detoxed my body of heavy metals. After the week was up I started to feel the positive benefits almost straight away. Start with a small amount and gradually increase with time to decrease your detox symptoms.
I use Rainforest Organic Spirulina Powder which you can get if you click here

You can adapt the fruits to add more variation. I often substitute the mango for apples or pineapple but I always keep the celery, banana and spinach.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
