This recipe is fantastic for our Mental PowerBars.
The smoothie is packed full of ingredients to help alleviate a mind clouded by foggy thoughts and ensure you are ready for a productive day!
Cucumber: Vitamin C – those who have vitamin C deficiency often feel very fatigued and as a result don’t have clarity of thought, leading them to lack the ability to make clear decisions due to tiredness. This would significantly decrease their Mental PowerBar energy.
Carrot: High level of antioxidants – Those with a greater level of antioxidants, such as carotenoids in their diet are less likely to suffer from degenerative diseases. Carrots are good at slowing down the onset of such illnesses, as well as protecting your brain and helping improve its function.
Ginger: Bioactive compounds – Antioxidants and bioactive compounds in ginger can inhibit and slow down inflammatory responses in the brain. Daily doses of ginger can help enhance reaction time and working memory, therefore improving your cognitive abilities.
Cinnamon: Enhances cognitive processing – Therefore, improves attention and concentration allowing for one to perform much better in study or work environment and boosting your Mental energy.
