Growing Black Hair To Great Lengths: Inexperienced Smoothies
Green smoothies – Healthy hair from the inside out.
The inexperienced smoothie mania is upon us. Every the place I go I can’t seem to escape it. My instagram timeline is flooded with pictures of mysterious trying smoothies of various tints and shades of inexperienced captioned ‘breakfast smoothie”, “brunch smoothie”, “post workout smoothie”. At the gym, the same mysterious liquid seems to be peeking out of everybody’s gym bag. As an equal opportunity well being fad experimenter, I determined to get on the bandwagon already.
So I began looking for recipes. First off, you have got to select your greens: ugwu, bitterleaf (if you’ll be able to stand it), kale, spinach.. mainly any leafy green vegetable will do. Then you might add some fruit: apples, pineapples, bananas, mangoes.. healthy additions to improve the taste as a result of let’s face it, who desires to drink blended spinach Then there are the super foods, and this is the place the fun (or confusion relying on the way you look at it) begins. Superfoods are foods of very high nutritious value, beneficial to health and effectively being whereas having little or no unfavourable properties. There’s maca powder, goji berries, chia seeds, msm, blueberries, cacao powder and so on. The listing goes on and determining which ones to put in your smoothie can be headache inducing. Your best guess is to decide what your aim is: it may be to slow down/reverse signs of aging, prevent or cure heart illness/diabetes/high blood strain, enhance your skin/hair/nails, help weight loss etc. After getting decided, decide the corresponding superfoods. I went with chia seeds (good source of fibre and calcium), msm powder (for skin, hair and nails), camu camu powder (vit c, helps with absorption of msm) and blueberries (antioxidants). So all in all, my recipe was:
– A handful of Kale
– A handful of spinach
– 1 apple
– 1 heaped table spoon of Chia seeds
– A handful of Blueberries
– 1/2 teaspoon MSM Powder
– 1/2 teaspoon Camu camu powder
I acquired the sprouted chia seed powder from the well being food retailer but you may get them online for much less

I put them all in the blender, threw in some ice cubes and blended for a few minutes. It didn’t style nearly as unhealthy as I anticipated. I’ve had one on a regular basis since (with minor changes to the recipe: I’ve used almond milk, plain yoghurt and bananas).
It has been about a month since I started and i feel energetic, my skin is glowy (is that a phrase ), I have misplaced some weight (I will not give all the credit to the green smoothies as I have additionally been working ooout! but it is certainly a contributing issue). I haven’t seen any advantages to my hair yet however then, it does takes about 3 months for the effect of your food plan to point out up in your hair so it is too early to tell. However, glowy skin, more energy and weight loss are definitely adequate reasons to get my green smoothie on. Plus, anything that is good for the pores and skin will most of the time be good for the hair (and nails).
