That's why you should always mix a power shot or smoothie yourself
If you now think you can just buy your healthy smoothie at the supermarket, we're sorry to say: Sorry, no way! Unfortunately, it's not that simple, because of course the ready-made smoothies often contain preservatives and too much sugar to really be considered healthy.
If you want the full effect of the power ingredients, you should reach for the blender yourself. In our colorful smoothie mix we use different immune boosting substances and special - partly local superfoods like: Flaxseed, beet, spinach, frozen berries and much more.
