Superfood Antioxidant Smoothie


At Bare Health we believe smoothies should be a daily occurrence. This is our owner and trainer Matt Kathol’s favorite superfood antioxidant-filled smoothie! Take a watch of our video in which he thoroughly explains the benefit of each ingredient that he puts in his morning smoothie. We love smoothies because of how jam-packed they are with micronutrients. What are micronutrients? Non-essential nutrients are nutrients that your body can make from raw resources. Micronutrients are: vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients (non-essential micronutrients). Essential nutrients are nutrients that your body cannot make by itself and must be consumed in their whole form. In Matt Kathol’s research of 30 years it is clear that there are many other nutrients that the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) should qualify as essential nutrients. I wish I could take the time to explain all of the research to you, but it would fill thousands of pages with technical explanations, clinical research, law, and economics. With the correct intake of fruits and vegetables (>10 servings per day), low to no intake of grasses (oats and grains), and at least 3/4 oz. of water per pound of body-weight we get the MINIMAL amount of micronutrients. That is why we highly recommend a nutrient packed smoothie to start your day!

  • Sunwarrior vanilla protein powder* (1/2-1 scoop for women 1-2 scoops men)
