Berry-licious Shake

I so love berries especially for the fact that they contain a high amount of antioxidants particularly blueberries and they are fruits that aren’t too sweet which means your blood sugar level stays on an even keel.

Pomegranates are listed as one of the top 10 bible foods that heal the body and mind. They pack a seriously huge punch of health benefits and are loaded with fibre, vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium.

Research shows that pomegranates can help prevent or treat various disease risk factors, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, oxidative stress, hyperglycemia and inflammation. Pomegranates have even been shown to provide anticarcinogenic effects. That’s right, pomegranate seeds can prevent and treat certain forms of cancer!

Pomegranates are also beneficial for a healthy reproductive system. In ancient Greece, this fruit was a symbol of fertility. Pregnant women have been known to use the fruit to reduce the risk of premature birth, and some women rely on the pomegranate to assist with the side effect of fatigue due to menopause.

Flaxseeds contain anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids along with antioxidant substances called lignans that help promote hormonal balance.

Pumpkin seeds are used to balance excess oestrogen and encourage progesterone production for normal ovulation. They are used for their essential fats and zinc content, important for progesterone production.
