Vitasave's Superfood Smoothies Up Close - Happy Hippy

In September of last year, Vitasave.ca went offline to bring the same great products, service and smiles to the high street. The first Vitasave.ca brick and mortar store is nestled in the heart of North Vancouver, BC and in addition to top quality products, low prices and awesome health educators, there are eight, delicious and highly nutritious superfood smoothies to keep you nourished and glowing by the glassful. What are superfoods? Superfoods are nutrient dense foods. This simply refers to the ratio of macronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phyto-chemicals) per calorie. Superfoods provide the body with endless benefits, so what's the quickest and easiest way to consume them? In one of our deliciously wholesome, 100% organic, plant based superfood smoothies available from our rocking, in store smoothie bar!

Happy Hippy

This sunshine smoothie will brighten up your day and your skin! Packed with immune boosting antioxidants and rich in Vitamin C, the happy hippy will keep you smiling from the inside out. Oranges are full of beta-carotene, which is a powerful antioxidant that protects the cells from damage. Beta-carotene protects the skin from free radicals, this keeps it looking radiant and helps prevent the signs of aging. One of the most popular green leafy vegetables on everyone's radar, Kale is a nutritional powerhouse. It is abundant in Vitamins C and K, has a healthy balance of omega-3 and omega 6 and with more iron than beef it makes for a great source of this valuable mineral to vegans and vegetarians. The Happy Hippy's touch of sweetness comes from the natural sugars found in dates, which are also rich in dietary fibre to help regulate blood sugar levels. The ALA fats in flax seeds benefits the skin and hair by providing essential fats as well as b-vitamins which can help reduce dryness and flakiness. It can also improve symptoms of acne, rosacea, and eczema. Chlorella naturally increases levels of vitamin A, vitamin C and glutathione in your body which eliminates free-radicals and protects your cells, helping us to look younger for longer. Meanwhile, The formidable antioxidant content of matcha battle and control the harmful effects of UV radiation, helping greatly in protecting the skin from sun, wind and all extremes in weather conditions. The strong presence of the EGCG antioxidant in matcha slows cell degeneration to impede the ageing process, promoting smooth, tight skin that retains moisture and natural, smooth colour tones. Coconut meat and oil, as we have all heard by now, possesses several health promoting properties. The fatty acids naturally present in coconut oil nourish and moisturize from the inside out. Not only that, but these same fats increase your body’s ability to absorb vitamins A and E, which are essential for skin, hair and nail growth. Furthermore, coconut oil’s ability to improve internal functions like detoxification and blood flow benefit your external organs, as well. This happens as result of faster cellular regeneration, greater nutrient availability, cleaner pores and reduced potential for microbial growth. Ingredients - all 100% Organic
