The Healthy Smoothie Boosters You’ve Been Missing

We’re going to say it: whoever invented the smoothie is basically a genius, right?
These yummy blends are the perfect healthy breakfast on the go, a liquefied lunchtime checklist of vitamin-rich fruits, veg and supplements to boost your energy mid-day, and even a mineral/protein-spiked post-workout sip. No matter what you’re looking for, smoothies have your back.

While smoothies can be the answer for an easy way to stay on top of a healthy diet, not every smoothie is created equal.

If you aren’t adding the right things to your mix, you can do more damage than good by taking in too many carbs, sugar, or not the proper vitamins and minerals for you.

No worries, though—we got you.

Whether it’s a spoon of instantly soluble Red Beet Crystals (US/CA) for optimal cellular and physical energy or a scoop of Green Blend (US) / Beyond Greens (CA) to up your veggie intake, our line of organic smoothie boosters will take your smoothie—and your day—seriously up a notch. Looking for a little more energy for a big day at work or strenuous workout? Our organic, non-GMO beet crystals are exactly what you need. Juiced and vacuum-dried, our beet crystals are nine times more concentrated than regular beet juice. This means it has way more nitrates than regular beet juice.

If you aren’t familiar with nitrates, they’re basically your body’s BFF when it comes to energy.

Here’s why: nitrates get broken down by saliva into nitrites which then turn into nitric oxide in the body. This nitric oxide helps the body with vasodilation. Normal speak? Nitric oxide helps your blood vessels relax and allows oxygen and nutrients to better get into the tissue. Healthier cardiovascular system, increased cognitive benefits and improvement in exercise, here you come! All thanks to nitrate-rich crystals. Smoothie up for a better, more energized day!
