Nutritional benefits from this smoothie

With the coffee and nutrients in this smoothie, it’s sure to give you a boost.

Collagen

Collagen is used by your body to support many of its natural processes and is in particular known to support the health of your hair, skin, and nails.

Collagen is a protein responsible for healthy joints and skin elasticity, or stretchiness. It’s in your bones, muscles, and blood, comprising three quarters of your skin and a third of the protein in your body.

Health benefits of collagen

We know that Collagen that is produced by your body is essential for you body to function, however, there have not been enough studies yet to prove the value of collagen supplement products. There is some good evidence though, and we in particular love the completely vegan collagen supplement from Golde.

I’ve been in particular interested in Collagen because of it’s benefits for skin hydration and eczema.

Banana

Bananas are packed with nutritional value, but especially ripe bananas are full of sugar so it’s good to use them moderately. Bananas are known for their potassium content, but they are also rich in vitamins:

  • Potassium: 9% of the RDI
  • Vitamin B6: 33% of the RDI
  • Vitamin C: 11% of the RDI
  • Magnesium: 8% of the RDI
  • Copper: 10% of the RDI
  • Manganese: 14% of the RDI
  • Net carbs: 24 grams
  • Fiber: 3.1 grams
  • Protein: 1.3 grams
  • Fat: 0.4 grams

The vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants in bananas are known to aid in sleep health, moderate blood sugar, and improve digestive health.

Peanut butter

Peanut butter is pretty much good on anything. I grew up eating PB&J sandwiches literally every day. Peanut butter is known for it’s high fat content and should be consumed in moderation. I would definitely look out for all natural peanut butter in the stores w/ no added sugars or oils.

Peanut butter does contain nutrients that the body needs though as well, including protein, magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B-6. These nutrients are good for heart health, can improve blood sugar levels, and even help stave off hunger.
