We were fortunate to catch up with Dr. Sara and ask her some hormone regulation questions. A shake a day can help curb cravings, balance hormones, and improve the brain body connection!
Here’s Dr. Sara’s insight:
I am often asked: What is the ONE THING that will help regulate hormones as fast as possible? My answer is to drink a green shake every day until your hormones (estrogen, insulin, and thyroid) are back on track, which may take 30-45 days, or longer depending on severity.
During the 30-45 days of drinking the Quick Green Tonic, you may notice changes in your mood, mindset, blood sugar, and weight.
Providing your body with a clean source of organic micro-nutrients may curb junk food cravings, stress eating, and trigger weight loss. It can also set the stage for making healthy food choices for the rest of the day -- if you are not so hungry and insulin is functioning well, there is less chance you’ll binge eat later in the day.
This deliciously healthy green tonic contains radish sprouts that are a natural diuretic; avocado, which is great for the thyroid; plus watercress and ginger.
A Green Shake is also perfect for those who find it difficult to get their pound of vegetables a day.
This potent dose of antioxidants goes down quicker than a salad and travels better. Dr. Sara says she uses her blender for tonics, juices, and smoothies because blending whole vegetables doesn’t remove the fiber unlike juicing.
Not to mention, blending is faster, easier, and less messy!
