My Quick Nutrition Facts For This Smoothie Recipe
What is the potential health nutrition in this recipe?
* Turmeric is super rich in anti-inflammatory properties and aid in preventing inflammation and oxidative damage.
A study published in 2003 by the Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine reviewed that a substance in turmeric called ‘curcumin‘ is safe and effective in fighting inflammation, improving memory, potentially reducing back pain due to osteoarthritis, lowering the risk of heart-related diseases, fighting harmful free radicals, and more.
* Green tea matcha. Do you know a cup of matcha tea is equal to 10 cups of brewed green tea? Matcha tea also has over 100 times more antioxidants than regular brewed green tea. Antioxidants are vital in preventing chronic diseases and aging.
Matcha tea is a great source of fiber, chlorophyll, selenium, vitamin C, magnesium, and many more.
Besides being high in antioxidants, matcha tea is also good for detoxification, boosting metabolism, improving concentration and mind’s clarity, and lowering blood cholesterol and sugar glucose levels.
* Spinach are green plants loaded with antioxidants and tonnes of nutrients.
Putting spinach in your regular diet may help to improve eyes sight, prevent potential cancer, reduce your stress, (#Ad)improve digestion, prevent constipation, and control blood pressures level.
A cup (30g) of raw spinach contents are Water 27g, Calories 7, Protein 0.9g, Carbs 1.1g, Fiber 0.7g, and high potassium 167mg. Source data from the USDA.
* Maple syrup is made from the sugary sap of a few species of maple trees, mostly in part of Canada.

As it is high in potassium and antioxidants, banana helps in regulating normal blood pressure and good heart health.
Very good for the digestive system as banana (especially the unripe ones) contains a good amount of resistant starch and pectin. These dietary fibers are vital for supporting the growth of good gut bacteria.
