Healthy Heart Green Smoothie

Did you know that celery is one of the best things you can eat to help protect your heart? This green veggie is packed full of vitamins and minerals that all work to keep your cardiovascular system working in tip top shape. Of special note are the compounds it contains known as phthalides. These compounds have a double heart protective effect by relaxing the smooth muscles that surround the artery walls, reducing the strain on the heart to pump blood as well as helping to reduce the production of stress hormones, which also reduces strain on the heart. Celery is also rich in minerals, water and fiber meaning that it plays a role in your detoxification system, it supports your digestive system and so much more!

  • 3 celery ribs
  • 1 cup green leaf lettuce
  • 1 inch piece ginger root
  • ½ cup water or almond milk

Directions: Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
