Bio-K+ Green Smoothie

Bio-K+ Green Smoothie

By: Andréanne Martin

The holidays often mean heavy meals paired with drinks, lack of sleep and water retention, among other things.

Taking advantage of quieter days to get back into your routine is a winning strategy to regain your balance and well-being. Mix in some healthier days between the days of excess and make sure to keep hydrated throughout the holidays. On days off, rest, enjoy the outdoors, move, recharge your batteries and fill up on good nutrients. When you've had a lot to eat and drink, and your sleep is disturbed by digestion, start the next day with a delicious smoothie combining the flavors your body craves. It will contain everything needed to give you a jump start in the morning.

With prebiotics, fibers and Bio-K+ probiotics, the ingredients will energize your body and your good gut bacteria. Bio-K+ probiotics are key allies in this recipe, as Bio-K+'s three unique synergistic strains provide guaranteed bio-activity. This means that the bacteria you consume are alive and active, providing proven benefits for your health. The bacteria found in Bio-K+ products are of human origin and thus genetically easier for our body to recognize, making it easier for them to work with the bacteria that make up our digestive tract's microbiota. Just choose your favorite flavors and the ingredients you crave and you’ll get a delicious vegan or vegetarian smoothie.

With this customizable smoothie, you’ll benefit from the quality of the food you're giving to your body, boost your immune system, help your digestion and allow your microbiota to continue helping to improve your overall mental and physical health.

Enjoy!
