Our Super Smoothies Explained
What makes them ‘super’?
Our cold-pressed and fibre packed smoothies are literally gut health encaptured in the form of a bottle. For that we have to thank our good friends pre & probiotics. In this case, Bacillus Coagulans. Bacillus Coagulans are a natural, vegan strain of active cultures. A lactic acid-producing bacteria which are the most commonly found probiotics in fermented foods. This probiotic is able to generate spores during its reproductive life cycle. This, unlike other probiotics is what sets it apart and gives it the ability to go dormant during harsh conditions, which might kill off other probiotics. For this reason, this strain of bacteria is particularly robust. It’s able to withstand harsh conditions, such as high levels of acid, in the stomach. This may make B. coagulans particularly effective at alleviating stomach distress and other disorders. We’ve also added Chicory root a natural source of fibre. The inulin in chicory root fibre is also a prebiotic that feeds and promotes the growth of healthy probiotic bacteria in our guts. So basically, the prebiotic in Chicory root is the food for the probiotic (B.coagulans) and together they form a dynamic duo, with your gut being the benefice.
What is the difference between our smoothies and juices?
Our smoothies are made using whole produce which has effectively been blended so that none of the fibre is lost and results in a thicker ‘smoothie like’ texture. Juices, on the other hand, are pressed which means that the pulp of the fruits and veggies are separated from the juice resulting in a smoother texture.
What flavours do we do?
So we’ve got two fruity fusions for you to choose from.. first up is Berry Boss which is a flavoursome blend of apple, blackcurrant, carrot, blueberry, blackberry, chicory root and beetroot.
Secondly, Green Guru which is a powerful combination of apple, spinach, avocado, lemon, cucumber and chicory root.
