How and from what can you easily and quickly prepare a healthy drink that will cleanse the body, supply it with vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants and strengthen the body's natural defenses? Just buy:
• one green apple
• one pear
• pure Amla powder with Young Barley
Rinse the apple and pear, cut into smaller pieces (without kernels) and put in a blender. Add 250 ml of pure water and two teaspoons of finely ground Amla powder with young barley. We mix for 1 minute and we have two portions of a taste-balanced drink for a morning start to a new day.
Amla and Young Barley
Emblica officinalis and Hordeum vulgare are two superfoods that many people like today and include in their regular diet - in the form of sun-dried fruit (amla or amalaki), which is simply eaten, or ground powder (amla, young barley), which can be taken in capsules or dissolved in water.
Another interesting option, which is not so much known yet, is to mix pure powder into freshly squeezed juices or smoothies. Young barley contains magnesium, which contributes to the alkalization of the body and its electrolytic balance. It is therefore ideal for spring deacidification of the body. Vitamin B6 supports the normal production of red blood cells and the copper helps with the transfer of iron and oxygen in the body. In combination with ground amla, it increases the ability to absorb iron, reduces the rate of fatigue and exhaustion and supports energy metabolism and strengthens the immune system with a high content of vitamin C.
So what will you drink in this smoothie:
• a wide range of antioxidants (substances that reduce the normal oxidation process, which is responsible for aging and cell death)
• bioflavonoids (vitamins supporting the resistance of cell walls against the penetration of harmful substances - free radicals)
• important essential amino acids
• calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, copper
• vitamin C, B1, B2, B6, carotene
• 5 flavors out of six - to balance the three biological energies of vata, pitta and kapha
A natural source of vitamin C
Not only in Ayurveda, amla is valued for its high content of vitamin C and antioxidants. Vitamin C contained in this small Indian fruit significantly contributes to the cleansing of the body from free radicals and stimulates the body's defense.
How Much Vitamin C Do I Need?
Vitamin C consumption is very individual for each person. The recommended dose of vitamin C for a healthy lifestyle is usually around 60 mg per day. In respiratory diseases, doctors recommend a daily dose of 100 - 150 mg. In the case of a heavier load (eg stress), its consumption increases up to several thousand mg. Athletes, immunocompromised people, the sick, diabetics, smokers and alcoholics have increased vitamin C intake. Normal vitamin C consumption is affected by diet and fluid intake, as well as physical exertion and mental stress. Vitamin C deficiency is manifested by fatigue, bleeding gums and overall reduced resistance to infections. Vitamin C is not stored in the body, so it is necessary to take it regularly. Especially children, the elderly and the sick need it in regular daily doses. Naturally obtained vitamin C is of course more effective than one that is synthetically prepared.
