Boost Antioxidants With Our Cherry Almond Smoothie
The word “antioxidant” seems to be thrown at us often. So many recipes claim to boost antioxidants and provide you with some major health benefits. But why do we actually need antioxidants, and what exactly are they?
What are antioxidants?
Antioxidants are vitamins that protect our bodies against these free radicals.
Without going too deep into chemistry, these free radical atoms like to be in pairs and when they are split up, they scour our bodies to find another mate—which can wreak havoc on our cells and proteins and cause major damage to our skin! 👎🏼
Cherries, nuts, and roses are full of antioxidants, which is where our delicious cherry almond smoothie comes in!
The Best Antioxidant Smoothie Recipe
Cherries are packed with antioxidants and even contain anti-inflammatory compounds that can actually improve your quality of sleep! A clinical study showed that the antioxidant activity that comes from cherries can last for up to 12 hours in the body! ⏳ How’s that for an antioxidant smoothie?!
Almonds are also packed with some awesome antioxidants which can help lower oxidative stress from the body. This is important because oxidative stress can actually damage cells in the body which can cause side effects like wrinkles and premature aging – YIKES! 👵🏼
Be sure to use almonds that still have the skin on them in your cherry almond smoothie, as the skin is where the antioxidants are concentrated.
A Delicious Anti-Aging Almond Smoothie
If that wasn’t enough, this cherry almond smoothie also has rose water in it, which not only contains antioxidants but can also help soothe skin with its anti-inflammatory properties.
Fun Fact! Rose water is commonly used in skin care products, which is no surprise considering it can improve your skin’s complexion and reduce redness.
