What jumps out at you from this list of powerhouse ingredients? We love the mix of amino acid rich plant-proteins like spirulina, alfalfa, parsley. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of a few key ingredients:
Kelp Frond Powder
As a sea vegetable, kelp extracts components from the seawater and so we find high concentrations of minerals like iodine, iron, potassium and phosphorus. Thus, kelp can help us to regulate the thyroid hormones and therefore our metabolism and energy levels.
It is a natural source of vitamins A, B2, B6, C, D, E and niacin; and, as it is also filled with phytochemicals, kelp will help your body to detox heavy metal contaminants and radioactive elements. You can read more about the benefits of kelp here.
Licorice Root Powder
In the digestive tract, licorice is used to treat issues such as stomach ulcers, leaky gut syndrome, hepatitis, and acid reflux. This herb is a common ingredient in natural cough syrups because it helps relieve a cough and expectorate mucus. Licorice Root is also incredible for healing and restoring the adrenal glands. You can read more about the benefits of licorice here.
American Ginseng Root Powder
Ginseng is an adaptogenic herb, which means it belongs to a group of herbs that are extra healthy for your adrenal glands. Your adrenal glands are in charge of managing your body’s hormonal response to stress. So, not only is it great for your adrenals, it can also help to treat a large variety of health issues including cold and flu and weight control. You can read more about the benefits of ginseng here.
We recommend you incorporate Muscles by Nature into your morning smoothie. So many people start their day with protein powders that are filled with dairy and other ingredients that are not health promoting. This is a great option for those of you who are looking to move out of the solely detox phase of your journey and focus on normalising. Our only caution is to not take this before bed! This blend is super energising, and a perfect way to kickstart your day.
