6 High Protein Smoothies to Boost Your Immune System this Fall
Fall is officially here! This means pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin patches, cozy nights by the fireplace, and other fun fall activities you’ve been waiting for.
But it’s also the start of the flu season.
As flu season creeps in, it’s so crucial to boost your immune system with ingredients like plant protein and superfoods. So tik tok! It’s time to ramp up your defense systems with high protein smoothies to keep your body healthy and energized while you transition into the colder months.
What Does Your Immune System Do?
Your immune system protects your body by fighting the bad stuff like bacteria and viruses. By filling yourself with ingredients that support your body, you’re way less likely to get sick.
What makes Plant Protein different?
First off, what is a protein?
It’s the 20 amino acids that you need for building and repairing your body. It influences so much of your body such as your cells, digestion, tissues, organs and hormones. Luckily your body can make 11 of those amino acids!
But what about the other 9?
Revive Superfood’s high protein smoothies contain ingredients like pea protein. Pea protein contains 9 out of the 20 amino acids that your body can’t make. AKA “essential” amino acids. A high-quality source that makes your body and heart happy! Though chickpeas come a close second.
We know you’re super busy making magic in your life. With the flu (and the coronavirus) floating around, the last thing you need is to get knocked down by bacteria and viruses. Say goodbye to unnecessary sugars and ingredients. And hello to smoothies filled with only the best superfoods.
To make this as easy as possible, here are 6 superfood smoothies with the highest protein content to keep your body in tip-top shape for the fall.
