I knew exactly why that question was asked. They are Asian and, in their culture, it's best to start the day with a warm beverage. This practice of drinking something warm in the morning brings multiple health benefits including boosting our metabolism, kick starting our digestive system, detoxification, increased circulation, etc. If you think about it, warmth tends to open everything up. Steam opens up our pores and the cuticle layer of our hair. Warm temperatures increase circulation and sweating. All of this is really good for us.
My friend was right. If I had a choice for my morning beverage between something hot or cold. Hot is a better option (especially during the cooler months). So this morning I decided to make a "warm green smoothie" at home. Basically, I wanted similar benefits to the green morning smoothie while kickstarting my bodies' internal detoxification and stimulation systems. I warmed water on the stove and removed it before it reached boiling point. Then I added a little collagen powder knowing that the warm temp of the water would dissolve the powder in a flash.Beautifully Bamboo family. It contains super greens such as wheat, barley, alfalfa grasses and sea greens (spirulina, chlorella) along with kale and bamboo silica. I'm still formulating so the final product may contain even more amazing ingredients when the green blend actually goes live.
