Cold Smoothies Will Help You Beat the Heat This Summer 

Smoothie aficionados know how delicious, cold, and refreshing a blended beverage can be on a hot summer day. This year, add some nutrition to your summer adventures with healthy smoothies

When the sun is beating down on you, and you’re yearning for a refreshing, hydrating drink, you’ll be thankful for your smoothie recipes. We’ve compiled a list of unexpected nutritious ingredients to add to your summer smoothies

Adding these ingredients will boost the nutritional content of your blended drinks and offer wonderful flavor profiles. As you sit by the pool, spend time walking outdoors, or do any other fun summer activity, don’t forget your smoothie!

Turmeric: Fight Inflammatory Responses for Better Health

Turmeric has many health benefits you may not know about. Though it’s often used in Indian cuisine, it can easily get overlooked as a smoothie ingredient

This spice contains a compound called curcumin, which helps decrease oxidative stress and fight unhealthy inflammatory responses.* Some people refer to turmeric as “the anti-aging spice.” 

Consider adding a dash of turmeric to your summer smoothie this year. Alternatively, you can harness the concentrated powers of curcumin by adding Curcumin-SR™.

Curcumin-SR™: Healthy Aging and Immune Support* 

The regular curcumin found in turmeric isn’t very bioavailable. This means it’s hard for your body to absorb and actually use the curcumin for therapeutic purposes. 

Curcumin-SR™ is different. This supplement contains a concentrated form of curcumin that offers 10 times more bioavailability than the curcumin in turmeric.* 

Curcumin-SR™ offers the following health advantages:

  • Balanced immune responses*
  • Healthy inflammatory response management*
  • Reduced oxidative stress*
  • Healthier aging*
  • Increased joint comfort*
  • Healthy joint function* 

Adding Curcumin-SR™ to your summer smoothies allows you to enjoy these benefits without the taste of turmeric. 

Chia Seeds: Packed With Healthy Omega-3s

You may not think of adding chia seeds to your next smoothie, but your health may benefit if you do. These tiny seeds contain lots of fiber, minerals, antioxidants, and healthy omega-3 fatty acids!

Adding just a few chia seeds won’t change the texture of your summer smoothie much. If you don’t mind a grainy texture, pack in those seeds for better health. 

You can enjoy the following potential health benefits by enjoying chia seed-rich summer smoothies

  • Blood pressure regulation
  • Digestive regularity
  • Improved inflammatory response management
  • Reduced oxidative stress
  • Cholesterol level regulation
  • Chronic health problem prevention

With these benefits in mind, why not add chia seeds to your next blended beverage this summer? Always make sure you’re following a healthy lifestyle and nutritious diet along with enjoying your chia seed smoothies!

Fruits With Plenty of Vitamin C 

The health benefits of vitamin C seem endless. From improved immunity to protection against chronic health problems, it’s difficult to see any downsides to adding vitamin C to your smoothies

Many fruits, particularly citrus fruits, are packed with plenty of vitamin C. These fruits will add great flavors to your summer smoothies while boosting your immunity and protecting your health. 

Try these vitamin C-rich fruits in your next smoothie:

  • Mangoes
  • Strawberries
  • Guavas
  • Grapefruits
  • Kiwis
  • Oranges
  • Lemons
  • Limes
  • Pineapples
  • Blackberries

These delicious, nutritious fruits increase your vitamin C levels while contributing wonderful flavors to your blended drinks. If you want even more vitamin C for the ultimate immune boost, check out Advasorb® Vitamin C.

Boost Your Smoothies With Advasorb® Vitamin C

Advasorb® Vitamin C offers much higher absorption rates than other vitamin C supplements on the market.* By adding it to a smoothie with lots of fruit, you can increase your vitamin C intake for added immune support.*

Our concentrated vitamin C formula offers detoxification, antioxidant power, and immune-boosting properties.* You get all of these benefits without digestive upset or heartburn, which are common problems with other vitamin C supplements.* 

You want to stay well this summer so you can take advantage of all of the fun outdoor activities. Achieve this goal by supporting your immune system and adding Advasorb® Vitamin C to your summer smoothies!

Bump Up the Micronutrients: Vegetable Smoothie Ingredients 

It might seem odd to add unsweetened vegetables to your summer smoothies. However, leafy greens and other veggies contain important micronutrients that can enhance your health. 

Micronutrients are important for supporting your immune health, system detoxification, and appearance. Some micronutrients give you stronger hair, skin, and nails, which are more important in the summer — everyone can see them in bright sunlight!

You can make your summer smoothies superfood powerhouses by adding vegetables like kale, spinach, beets, and edamame. Many vegetables won’t alter your smoothie's taste, and others can be covered up with fruits and other sweeteners. 

Support Your Health With Summer Smoothies 

You can enjoy cold, delicious drinks and support your health at the same time this summer. Using Quality of Life premium health supplements and high-quality fruits and vegetables, you’re bound to see (and feel) the difference!
