Introduction

About this Recipe

By: Lisa Chilvers

Wondering how a smoothie can help you feel calmer?

The super foods like mango are abundant in nourishing B-complex vitamins, folic acid, selenium, zinc, magnesium, and potassium, all shown to reduce that stress-out buzz and release nervous tension. The greens are chock full of magnesium, which is the number one needed nutrient to ease tension. Last, but not least, Ashwaganda is a booster similar to ginseng.
