    Benefits

    This tasty smoothie is packed with nutrients that your body needs, especially if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. Here’s why this recipe works:

     

    Protein

    Protein is an essential component of every cell in your body; it supports everything from our hormones to hair growth to DNA!

    We depend on protein in many aspects of our lives. Majka Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder helps keep protein a staple in every mom’s balanced diet. From the powder alone, this smoothie will deliver 13 grams of plant-based protein to keep you satisfied and strong all day.

    Heart Health

    Beetroot powder is full of nutrients that support a healthy heart and cardiovascular system; nitrates are one of these components. The body converts nitrates from beets to nitric oxide, once in this form, blood vessels dilate. Dilated blood vessels might not sound very glamorous, but they’ll allow you to have better circulation and lower blood pressure — which both have health perks.

    Brainpower

    The nitric oxide from beetroot powder (mentioned above) pack another punch — they’ll improve your brain functioning by increasing blood flow to your mind. Plus the sprinkle of chia seeds in this recipe are full of omega-3 fatty acids, which are good fats that feed your brain. If you’re feeling groggy in the morning or loosing focus throughout the day, reaching for this smoothie is the perfect way to to boost your brainpower.

    Extra Energy

    Don’t let the size of chia seeds fool you, this small ingredient is busting with big-time nutritional benefits! The chia seeds in this recipe will keep you feeling glowy and extra energized all day long with their fiber, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant rich properties.

    Lactation Support

    All in all, sipping on this smoothie will bring amazing benefits to you as a pregnant or nursing mom because it contains our Majka Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder designed by mothers, for mothers. A blend of fenugreek, organic ginger root, and turmeric root extract found in our wholesome protein can naturally increase your breast milk supply.
