Parsley Power: Green Vegetable Smoothie 💚

I love watching a person when I tell them what I put in my smoothies. This is good stuff! Had I not tried it, I’d have stuck my nose up at the idea of adding parsley, lettuce, or zucchini for that matter. I’m telling you the blend works and tastes good too. 

Parsley is an herb rich in vitamin A, vitamin K, folate, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, antioxidants, and essential oil. Health benefits include inhibiting cancer, detoxifying, anti-inflammatory, immune booster, building bone, and removing gallstones (contains oxalic acid/kidney cleanser). Traditionally, parsley has been used to remedy anemia, bad breath, and menstrual pain.

Inner Ecosystem: A Living World Inside You

inner-ecosystemJust like earth, the human body has an inner ecosystem that is located inside of the digestive tract. This living world teems with a variety of micro-flora that work day and night to keep the body healthy and in homeostasis.

The inner ecosystem stretches from mouth to rectum and is approximately 30 feet long. Neatly packed in there are millions of micro-flora organisms, both good (probiotics) and bad (pathogens) that intermingle; living in a delicate balance of harmony with one another.
