The coconut water will help replenish those lost electrolytes.

Blender Babes recently has been experimenting with maca in our high powered blenders because of its many benefits, including nourishing the adrenal glands and reducing those (fat storing!) cortisol levels.

Goji berries are a superfood that packs a powerful punch.

Of course having a high-quality protein blend with BCAAs helps to repair and rebuild tired muscles.

Say good bye to inflammation and muscle soreness and save this recipe or pin it!

It can even increase sexual function! In addition, maca root is fungistatic (inhibits growth of fungi) and bacteriostatic, an anticarcinogen and antioxidant!

Also known as Wolfberries, Goji Berries are a delicious superfood that contain TONS of nutritional benefits.

From the plant Lycium barbarum, gogi berries are considered a complete source of protein, a perfect ingredient for longevity and strength-building.

This amazing fruit also contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and anti oxidants, including iron, calcium, copper, and zinc, and 18 different amino acids.

An extensive body of clinical research has been conducted on goji berry and LBP, showing extremely beneficial results.

Studies show that LBP polysaccharides are exceptional sources of the essential cell sugars necessary for proper immune function and intercellular communication.

These polysaccharides can enhance health in a variety of ways, including helping cancer patients rebuild their natural defenses, improving DNA restoration and repair, and maintaining normal cell growth, and they may help slow the aging process. LBP also contains lutien and zeaxanthin, which are beneficial to visual acuity. (Source: Live Superfoods)
