1/2ccup frozen or fresh banana, cut in pieces
1 scoop plant based protein powser, plain or vanilla flavored
2 T hemp seeds, hulled
1/2 t Vanilla extract
1/4 t ground Cinnamon
1 cup ice
1 cup Coconut milk, unsweetened

Place blueberries, bananas, hemp seeds, protein powder, vanilla and cinnamon in a blender.

Add ice to blender.

Pour in 1 cup of coconut milk. Add more, if necessary, to just cover the ice cubes. Blend away and enjoy!

You must get the Wild blueberries because they are far better than cultivate blueberries. Wild blueberries are richer in antioxidants, therefore providing more nutrition and immune boosting support. Wild blueberries are frozen at harvest, and therefore hold their amazing antioxidants longer than cultivated. Wild blueberries pack a punch of puckering and sweet blueberry flavor. Wild blueberries are uniquely grown naturally in Maine and Eastern Canada. Wild Blueberries are "wild" because they have not been planted by man, they have been planted by God.

I love this recipe! It tastes great and it really does help!

  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup coconut water
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne

Mix together in glass Mason jar. Pour into a shot glass, and shoot it! Store in the fridge for up to two weeks. Always shake before drinking because the spices will settle at the bottom.

This tonic is great for after a workout or whenever you feel inflamed (like after cheat day). For instance, if you have a sore knee, drink 3 shots per day for a week or until you feel better. Of course, always check with your physician before starting any new health regimen.

 

What is Systemic Inflammation?

What is Systemic Inflammation?

In the most basic terms, inflammation is an accumulation of fluid. This accumulation of fluid causes swelling, pain and discomfort. One of the most common forms of inflammation occurs in our joints and is known as arthritis. This form of inflammation is local, or contained to one or few areas. Similarly, there is systemic inflammation that is spread throughout the whole body. This inflammation cause swelling, pain and discomfort in our whole body. You will feel this in your face, your extremities, your abdomen, your hands and your feet, just to name a few.

Inflammation is one of the phases of healing in the body and is usually a good thing. The fluid is filled with while blood cells, hormones, and nutrients that work together to get rid of the illness or heal the injury. Systemic, or chronic, inflammation occurs when there is no obvious injury and the fluid still accumulates. The cells and hormones are there for one reason and when there are no invader cells to destroy, it may start attacking the healthy cells. You have no cuts, bruises or even a cold, but your body thinks it does. Over time, if this persists, systemic inflammation can lead to many illnesses and health conditions including heart disease, lung issues, diabetes, depression, cancer and more.
