This fiberful blend will get your system running smoothly! Apricots are a good source of catechins, a family of flavonoid phytonutrients. These small fruits contain four to five grams of the anti-inflammatory catechins, as well as vitamins A and C. Speaking of vitamin C, rosehip powder is an excellent source. It’s also an anti-inflammatory, and may help regulate blood sugar levels, cholesterol, and blood pressure! This light drink is a fantastic nutrient-dense meal replacement, or a energy-boosting snack.
