Well the number of the benefits of this smoothie are many! here are some:

  • lower the risk of heart related ailments and assist in sustaining cardiovascular health. The flavonoids present in cranberries have antioxidant properties and may decrease the threat of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a disease in which the arteries are narrowed due to the build-up of fat, calcium, and cholesterol found in the blood. This obstructs the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the various parts of the body and may lead to potentially fatal outcomes like heart attacks and strokes. These compounds have been shown to delay and suppress the oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL) and beneficially stimulate the blood platelets.
  • Helps to inhibit certain strains of the Haemophilus influenza, which is a common cause of ear and respiratory infections in children.
  • It purifies the blood from within and cleanses toxins and excess water from the body, imparting a healthy glow to the face.
