Blueberry Maca Smoothie

Blueberries are full of antioxidants that safeguard your body naturally from damaging free radicals. Not as well-known as blueberries but just as much of a nutritional powerhouse, maca root is full of vitamins, minerals, antioxdiants, and phytonutrients that can assist the body in so many different ways. Its nutrient density has been accredited to its extreme surroundings, the tops of the Peruvian Andes, where few other plants can survive.
