Stress Buster Smoothie
What's great about it
I love to create this antioxidant rich smoothie made with berries and other super-food ingredients, as they help support my adrenals and stabilise my energy level. Stress can keep cortisol levels in the blood elevated for longer, which in turn can affect metabolism, suppress thyroid function and increase abdominal fat. Blueberries are a great source of potassium that helps to regulate muscle contraction and fluid balance. The rich colour from blueberries comes from anthocyanins, antioxidants which help to neutralise free radicals. Protein will aid in recovery, support your immune system and help stabilise hormones, which is great in times of stress.
