We all know it’s important to eat a balanced diet, which includes the physician's recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.
Smoothies are a great (and delicious) way to get the many nutrients you need in one place. Plus, there are so many combinations you can create, and they are great meals on the go. Enjoying a smoothie a day is a colorful way to support optimal health.
For all-in-one nutrition support, add a rainbow to your daily CardioFitMD® smoothie. Start with one scoop of CardioFitMD® powder added to 12 fluid ounces of water. Then just add your favorite nutrient-rich colors.
(Add more water or your favorite non-dairy drink to change consistency as preferred.)
Strawberries are sweet, heart-shaped powerhouses packed with essential antioxidant vitamins to support healthy tissue and cell function throughout the body and potassium and fiber to help support healthy cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
Cherries are a good source of fiber to support healthy digestive and heart function, as well as vitamin C for immune support and collagen synthesis, and potassium for healthy blood pressure and nerve function. The antioxidant compounds in cherries also help support muscle recovery.
Raspberries are another low-calorie berry that helps maintain normal blood sugar levels to promote healthy heart function, while the high fiber content supports healthy digestion, and powerful antioxidant compounds promote healthy cellular aging and tissue regeneration.
Oranges provide a lot of vitamin C to help support immune system function and antioxidant protection throughout the body, flavonoids and carotenoids to help support healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and folate for metabolic health support.
Mangos are called the ‘king’ of fruits in many parts of the world on account of them being highly nutritious and delicious. Mangoes offer magnesium and potassium to promote healthy circulation and heart function, vitamins A and C to support immune cell activity, and antioxidant plant compounds that protect against typical oxidative stress.
Papayas contain fiber, potassium, and magnesium to help support heart health, as well as papain, a powerful digestive enzyme that helps promote proper food breakdown, choline to support cognitive health, a host of essential vitamins, and zeaxanthin to promote healthy vision and help reduce the risk of age-related eye symptoms.
Bananas are rich in soluble fiber to help keep you feeling full over a longer period and promote healthy digestive function by nourishing gut microbiome diversity. Bananas also help support heart health with fiber to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and potassium to promote healthy circulation.
Pineapples are sweet and full of vitamins, including vitamin C for immune support and powerful antioxidants to promote healthy cellular function in the body. The digestive enzyme bromelain in pineapples also helps with food breakdown to promote proper digestion and nutrient absorption.
Pears have been enjoyed for centuries and are packed with soluble and insoluble fiber to support gut, metabolic, and heart health. Pears also provide copper, which supports the immune, bladder, urinary tract, and nerve health, and they also supply potassium for healthy heart and muscle function.
Kiwis are small fruits with big health benefits. Fiber helps support digestion, enzymes help break down proteins, vitamin A supports eye health, and vitamin C supports immune system health. Certain compounds in kiwis also promote healthy blood flow.
Apples every day will keep the doctor away. There is some truth to this. Apples are packed with fiber to support digestion, healthy bowel movements, and healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Because of the fiber and water that make up an apple, they can also help keep you feeling full, which can support healthy weight management.
Avocados are a source of vitamins C, E, K, and B6, niacin, folate, and magnesium, potassium, and fiber. They also contain high levels of healthy, beneficial fats. The combination of fiber, antioxidants, and essential minerals helps support heart function and digestion and can be used to maintain a healthy weight.
Blueberries, like other berries, are full of fiber and antioxidants. The anthocyanins in blueberries help protect against typical oxidative stress to promote a healthy heart and cognitive function and help maintain healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
Blackberries provide a lot of vitamin C to support immune cell activity, normal collagen formation, healthy connective tissue, and blood vessel health. They are also a great source of vitamin E for healthy vision and vitamin K and manganese, two nutrients that help promote bone mineralization.
Acai berries are often called a ‘superfruit’ as they are loaded with antioxidants to support healthy cellular aging and protect against typical oxidative stress. This helps to support cognitive function, neurotransmitter activity, heart and circulatory health, and immune responses.
Along with the nutrients from your chosen fruits, there are several important nutrients in CardioFitMD® that support whole-body health.
♦ A broad-spectrum fiber and prebiotics blend contains 20% of the recommended daily serving of fiber to support proper digestion, nutrient absorption, healthy weight management, and help maintain healthy blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure levels.
♦ A potent dose of beetroot powder promotes nitric oxide production, a neurotransmitter that decreases with age. Nitric oxide promotes arterial health to support healthy circulation, so nutrients and oxygen are efficiently delivered to muscles for proper energy and overall health.
♦ Two billion CFUs of Bacillus coagulans probiotic supports gut microbiome diversity to promote healthy digestive and immune functions and healthy bowel movement, healthy weight management, stamina, and energy.
♦ Twenty vitamins and minerals that address the most prevalent vitamin and mineral deficiencies in the United States.
♦ Rhodiola helps support your body’s natural response to stress, supporting a reduction in everyday anxiety and fatigue, helping promote energy and stamina.
A CardioFitMD® smoothie a day can help you promote cardiovascular, circulatory, immune, and digestive health and support healthy weight management, stamina, and energy, for a healthy, active lifestyle.
