Keto 4 Menopause
Keto 4 Menopause
If you need a nutrient boost, a quick way to get in the vitamins, minerals and fibre is to consume a green smoothie - daily. What is great about a smoothie is that you can literally throw anything in!

I always make 2 at a time, one for today and one for tomorrow, to save time. Here is one of mine; to this one I added a teaspoon of spirulina for a good dose of chlorophyll and iodine (as well as many other essential nutrients) and 24 hours later it came out of the fridge like this! What a beautiful rainbow of colours packing a punch of flavours and micronutrients.

Iodine is an essential mineral that helps your thyroid gland produce thyroid hormones. Chlorophyll is what makes plants green. It has many potential health benefits due to its deodorant, anti-aging, wound-healing and blood-building properties.

Here’s to The Smoothie – cheers!

Study Links 2 Artificial Sweeteners as Dangerous to the Liver

Artificial sweeteners — specifically acesulfame potassium and sucralose — may interfere with your liver’s delicate detoxification process  Acesulfame potassium and sucralose — brand name Splenda — inhibited the activity of P-glycoprotein (PGP), a “defense protein” that’s important for protecting organisms against environmental toxins.

The artificial sweeteners may bind to PGP, thereby inhibiting transport of compounds like xenobiotics, drugs and their metabolites, short-chain lipids and bile acids. The findings could therefore have significant implications for people who take antidepressants, antibiotics and blood pressure drugs, which use PGP as a primary detoxification transporter.

PGP also plays a role in other body functions, including maintaining the blood-brain barrier, so the researchers stressed the need for further research to determine how artificial sweeteners may be affecting other organs beyond the liver.

A separate study found that people who consumed higher levels of the artificial sweetener aspartame had an increased risk of cancer.
