Let us break down the ingredients for you. The two superfoods we’re using are both readily available on Focus Supplements and we think they should be readily available in your kitchen cupboard at home; for the following reasons. Firstly Acai Powder, a beautiful, bright purple powder packed with antioxidents, is so loaded with nutrients that we've even recommended it as one of our superfood list of the Top 3 Everyday Superfoods. Indeed, it's one of the richest sources of antioxidents known to man. It's going to help lower your cholesterol, boost your immune system and give you healthy, glowing skin. Secondly, the tiny Dark Chia Seeds pack a powerful nutritional punch for their diminutive size. They contain essential omega-3 fatty acids and are a fantastic source of dietry fibre and protein. They also incredibly efficient at absorbing liquid, so they're going to thicken your smoothie to a really indulgent consistency.
