SUPERFOOD
SMOOTHIE RECIPES + HEALTH
BENEFITS OF INGREDIENTS

Taking care of your body starts with what you put into it, and superfood smoothies are a great way to get a lot of nutrients into your body in one tasty package. Here at Synergy Costa Rica we are blessed to have many superfood trees blooming on our lush jungle property, and we love to start our day or bookend our yoga practices with a yummy blend of local, organic and in-season fruit. One of the best attributes of these superfoods is that they are loaded with antioxidants and can be used to lessen inflammation in the body, which is a leading cause of many ailments.

Here are a few of the superfoods we focus on at Synergy:

Turmeric:
Turmeric is a wonderful anti-inflammatory spice that we put into all of our smoothies. It also gives a lovely golden color to smoothies and juices.

Noni:
Noni is a small flowering tree native to Polynesia. Used in smoothies, it benefits the immune system, and also boosts the serotonin output in your brain. A little extra happy in your diet never hurt!

Guanabana:
Guanabana is traditionally used to treat inflammation, as well as stabilizing blood sugar levels to avoid the dreaded crash.

Moringa:
Moringa is a superfood that is taking over the health world. It has the added benefit of being a great source of many vitamins and minerals and is an easy addition to any smoothie to get that extra kick.


Adding any of these to your daily intake can help nourish you and aid in preventing unease in your body. After all, you are what you eat!
