Vitamin E rich Kiwi Smoothie Bowl
This smoothie can be used as a facial mask but it is also very tasty to eat for breakfast, snack or dinner. It contains adequate amounts of omega 3 fatty acids, protein and is high in the antioxidant Vitamin E.
Antioxidants are as the name indicates useful to prevent excessive oxidation happening in the body. Oxidation is a process that releases free radicals that can damage tissues and which can block absorption of nutrients.
Vitamin E strengthens the cell membrane (outer layer of the cell) and protects the tissues of the skin, eyes, liver and breast. Vitamin E, found in avocado, hempseeds and wheatgrass powder works better when taken with other antioxidants such as Vitamin C (in kiwi and lime) and selenium (in Brazil nuts).
