    Keeping You Healthy With…

    Sweet potato: Orange and purple sweet potatoes are filled to the brim with antioxidants that protect against the free radical damage that causes premature aging and disease. They’re also a great source of fiber and support gut health by encouraging the growth of healthy bacteria. In a smoothie, sweet potato adds a thick and velvety texture.

    Chai tea: The ingredients in chai tea—like cardamom, cinnamon, fennel, black pepper, and cloves—are known to help support digestion, heart health, and blood sugar control. Chai tea also contains caffeine, although not as much as is found in black tea or coffee. It’s still enough to give you a nice burst of steady energy without spiking your blood sugar levels. That’s assuming you’re using your own chai tea concentrate and not a commercial variety that’s full of sugar.

    Amino Co Heal: This formula was originally developed for NASA astronauts to maintain muscle in space. Now it’s helping you maintain muscle right here on earth and adding a delightful vanilla flavor to this Sweet Potato Chai Smoothie. In addition to helping you build muscle, Heal promotes a healthy inflammation response and helps you recover from exercise and injury quicker.

    Coconut milk: Coconut milk lives up to coconut’s healthy reputation. It’s been linked to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, can help improve digestion, and provides electrolytes to help prevent dehydration. It’s the perfect, creamy addition to a chai smoothie.

    Maple syrup: A tablespoon of maple syrup delivers riboflavin, magnesium, zinc, calcium, and potassium, along with a plethora of antioxidants. Look for real maple syrup, not maple-flavored syrup, which is likely loaded with sugars and additives. 

    Cinnamon: This fragrant herb is known to help lower blood sugar levels and support healthy digestion. Cinnamon’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are being studied for their potential effects on cancer, HIV, dementia and more. In this smoothie, cinnamon lends a kick to the chai flavor.
