This smoothie is rich in antioxidants and fiber and filled with important nutrients like vitamin C, iron, calcium, and potassium.

Antioxidants play a role in protecting us from oxidative stress due to the accumulation of free radicals that we encounter every day like pollution, chemical exposure, radiation, and medications. Excess accumulation of these free radicals contribute to the development of cancer, autoimmune disorders, aging, arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, etc. Antioxidants prevent and repair damage caused by this oxidative stress.
