Because of its high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, hibiscus (a flower that is common in both tropical and subtropical climates) has been connected to lowered blood pressure and lowered cholesterol. Cranberries, cucumber and mint are also great anti-inflammatory agents, which means this low calorie smoothie is perfect for active lifestyles. And thanks to the fiber from an apple, collards and flaxseed, you’ll feel full and satisfied for hours after drinking!
