Smart as a Smoothie


The “smart” comes from this Blend’s ability to improve mental alertness, increase oxygen to the brain and enhance your blood flow. It assists you when you need to think and talk more clearly.

Sometimes even smart people need a pick-me-up, a boost to help clear the fog out of the brain. Pull away from the studies, the paperwork, or even the highway. Turn the car towards the smoothie shop and look for something that refreshes the mental fatigue.

The human brain is still shrouded in mystery, but one thing doctors are sure helps the brain function is oxygen and oxygen is delivered by blood. Although accounting for only around 2% of the body, the brain requires 25% of your body’s blood flow – which gives you some idea of how much oxygen it needs to generate enough energy to function well.

The extract found in the leaves of the Ginkgo Biloba tree has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine.

Green Tea has long been a standard part of a vibrant lifestyle in India, China, Japan and Thailand.  In traditional medicine in these countries, practitioners used green tea as a stimulant and to maintain heart health.

Niacin is an important part of a balanced thought-process. Niacin deficiency can include irritability, poor concentration, anxiety, fatigue, restlessness, apathy, and depression

Since neurotransmitters like serotonin (which is related to feelings of calm and well-being) depend on inositol to function, ensuring the body has enough of it can aid in controlling mood disorders and in lowering anxiety.

Choline is grouped within the Vitamin B complex.

Lecithin is a food additive, an emulsifier used in many food products. For example, it is lecithin that keeps the cocoa and the cocoa butter from separating in the common chocolate bar.

About Smoothie Essentials - ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the MatchaGT blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. The Smoothie Essentials product is a line of boosts that add functionality to one's daily foods without adding flavor or colors. (except for MatchaGT and green blend) making it easy to "hide" them from the finicky eaters we all know and love. From stirring them into yogurts, smoothies, frappes and even juice drinks it all come out with the original flavor being center star.. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes. More information is available at or by emailing
