This shake is like a medicine chest in a glass: rich in magnesium as well as calcium, potassium, omega oils, protein, vitamins and healthy bacteria. It tastes good too!
Many people are very deficient in Magnesium, which can have serious effects on our bodies from insomnia to chronic fatigue, muscle cramps to migraines, palpitations to chronic inflammatory diseases. For more information on Magnesium Deficiency and Magnesium-rich Plant-based Foods, see my post Magnesium: Are You Getting Enough?
Coconut can help the body absorb Magnesium, Calcium and other Vitamins, thereby maintaining healthy teeth, as well as supporting thyroid function and speeding up the metabolism.
The cultured bacteria in live yogurts help balance the gut and intestinal micro-organisms to aid digestion and support the immune system.
