Healthy H20 Recipe- Blood Sugar Support & Digestion
Cucumber + Strawberry + Kiwi
Cucumber - Cucumber has an impressive amount of water (about 96%) that is naturally distilled, which makes it superior to ordinary water. Its skin contains a high percentage of vitamin A, so should not be peeled off.
The cucumber contains alkaline-forming minerals and is an excellent source of vitamin C and A (anti-oxidants), folate, manganese, molybdenum, potassium, silica, sulfur, and lesser amounts of vitamin B complex, sodium, calcium, and phosphorus.
Strawberry - Strawberries – Strawberry powder has been shown to improve the healthy functions of the heart. Studies have shown positive change to the lipid profile and oxidative stress markers, and markers of atherosclerosis, in women with metabolic syndrome. Strawberry extract has also been shown to relax the lining of the blood vessels, which may reduce high blood pressure and disburden the heart muscle from over-exertion.Even the strawberry leaf extract has been shown to increase coronary artery blood flow in a manner similar to hawthorn extract.
Kiwi - This tiny, nutrient-dense fruit packs an amazing amount of vitamin C (double the amount found in oranges), has more fiber than apples, and beats bananas as a high-potassium food. The unique blend of phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals found in kiwifruit helps protect against heart disease, stroke, cancer, and respiratory disease. Kiwifruit's natural blood-thinning properties work without the side effects of aspirin and support vascular health by reducing the formation of spontaneous blood clots, lowering LDL cholesterol, and reducing blood pressure. Multiple studies have shown that kiwifruit not only reduces oxidative stress and damage to DNA but also prompts damaged cells to repair themselves.
When combining all three of these remedies together you have created a healthy, fun, creative drink to enjoy and the benefits will help you lower your blood sugar and support your digestion to help boost your metabolism. CHEERS!!
