We’ve always dreamt of a day where healthy living was made more accessible here in Egypt, that’s why we were so proud and elated when Glow announced their new Green Line that will complete their Detox Program. It just makes this already well rounded nutritious program even more awesome. You know how you can drink a healthy smoothie and it doesn’t taste as good as that milkshake you were craving. Well, that is not the case at Glow, here you can have a healthy, green smoothie that is going to tickle your taste buds as much as strengthen your immunity.

 

We spoke to Amina Rashad, Health Coach and Co-Founder of Glow and this is how she sees why the Detox Program needed this Green Line,

“At Glow we strive to offer more healthy options for people. Since eating greens daily is so important, we introduced the green line which has more greens such as cilantro, kale, cucumber and avocado and more fruits such as cantaloupe, orange, and apple. Eating more fruits and vegetables is essential for our health and the key to healing from almost every disease. So having more smoothies in our lives that are easy to digest and consume helps the whole process of sustaining a healthy lifestyle.”

 

The line includes 5 smoothies:

Now if probably know green smoothies are good for you but you don’t know exactly how all of these ingredients benefit you, we’ve got you covered.

Now you know what every ingredient does to your body, you can choose which smoothies would be best for you to add to have on any given day depending on what you need that day. If you’re feeling anxious about going to an important meeting or a final exam that the Green Dream would be the way to go (because of the Cilantro and the Avocado). When you’re body feels like an inflamed balloon basically then you need to cleanse your system with either Green Flamingo or Green Kick ( because of the Kale and Spinach).

If you’ve tried Glow’s Detox Program before than you already know just how much your body will thank you after you try it again with the new Green Line perfecting it even more. And if you haven’t tried it yet, what are you waiting for, treat your body to a vacation (from digesting hehe) and watch all the benefits rain down on you.
