Health Benefits
  1. Cranberries: are rich in polyphenols with anti-inflammatory effects that scientists think may reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease by preventing platelet buildup and lowering blood pressure.

  2. Orange juice: contains citrus limonoids, which research has shown can help to prevent and slow the progression of several different kinds of cancer, including skin cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, stomach cancer, and colon cancer.

  3. Mango: is an excellent source of vitamin A, which assists with immune system function, including white blood cell production and mobilization. Vitamin A also keeps your skin and hair healthy.

  4. Cherries: not only have a remarkably high ORAC value (a measurement of a fruit’s antioxidant capacity), but they are also the only dietary source of melatonin, the hormone that regulates our sleep-wake cycles.

  5. Hemp seeds: are made up of 25% protein and provide all nine essential amino acids you must obtain from your diet. With 10 grams of high-quality, easily digestible protein per tablespoon, they’re the perfect power boost to turn this into a plant-based protein smoothie.
