It increases satiety, contributes to healthy bowel movements, balances intestinal pH and when fermented by our gut microbes, produces beneficial metabolites for the body.
Cucumber: Cucumbers are not only refreshing (95% water) and low in calories, they have high levels of important phytochemicals and trace elements, and minerals.
How to make a green smoothie:
Remove the kale from the stem and core the apple.

What is your microbiome? The human microbiome is a community of 38,000,000,000,000 (that’s 38 trillion) microorganisms, mostly bacteria, living in and on your body. The genes harboured in these trillions of microbial cells are essential for human development, immunity, and nutrition. There is a close relationship between what we eat and our gut microbiome, which means that we can improve our health by modifying our diet. No surprise there, right?
How to support your microbiome: To further support a healthy microbiome, I recommend incorporating Seed’s DS-01™ Daily Synbiotic into your routine. DS-01™ is a pre-and-probiotic containing 24 clinically and scientifically studied probiotic strains (and 53.6 billion AFU) for benefits in and beyond the gut. Think healthy regularity, ease of bloating, smooth skin, heart health, and so much more.
