Additional Tips

Description from the chef:

"A hormonal balancing and nourishing smoothie for women. (Men can enjoy this one as well). Goji Berries & Maca are both used by herbalists and other holistic healers to help harmonize, rejuvenate and nourish the endocrine system for a healthy libido, balanced mood and sexual vitality. Maca in particular should be used with caution as some people are not suited to use the herb, for example if you have PCOS or breast cancer. Check with your herbalist first before using Maca as part of your daily regimen.

 

We use a protein powder in this smoothie for a stable source of protein. Protein supports the livers detoxification process so it can flush out excess hormones from the body and keep hormone levels at optimal levels. Our Resident N.D Dr. Francesca Quinn suggests having a small amount of protein at each meal as part of a hormonal balance protocol."
