Magnesium Magic

My Vitamix, my son Elias & I have had some time to explore the Green Smoothie World and here is one of my favorite recipes so far: Kale, pear, dates, almonds, avocado, pumpkin seeds, coconut oil, cinnamon, raw cacao and water.

"You have the power to maximize each phase and reduce physical and emotional discomforts by maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and taking vitamins that support your female body. For example, increasing your magnesium intake (via food or supplements), especially in week 4 of your cycle, can significantly reduce cramping, while regular intake of vitamin B6 throughout your cycle can help to minimize bloating."

So yes, today's Smoothie is topped with magnesium to support a healthy cycle and, lo and behold, I think I found a mix Elias loves!!
