Promote longevity inside and out with this delicious, glow-giving smoothie recipe. Stand out ingredients include Blue Zone longevity staple Okinawan Shikuwasa (citrus lime), skin-supporting Collagen and hydrating aloe vera. Get ready to say hello to a new glow once you've integrated this nutrient-dense smoothie into your routine.
Not only will this smoothie work on your skin health, but it'll also get down to your gut. Aloe vera and collagen are soothing on the gut lining and since a disrupted gut microbiome is one of the hallmarks of aging, this is especially important! Shikuwasa contains a key compound called nobiliten, which triggers autophagy (your body's cellular renewal process.)
