THE WE LIFE: IMMUNITY-BOOSTING SHIKUWASA LIME SMOOTHIES

BUILD YOUR IMMUNITY WITH THESE SMOOTHIE RECIPES THAT FEATURE THE ANTIOXIDANT-RICH INGREDIENT NATIVE TO OKINAWA 

Nourishing yourself from the inside out is important every day of the year, but even more so during the holiday season. With travel on the schedule, as is time with family and friends, taking care of your immune system is vital to maintaining overall health. One way to get an easy boost is to have an antioxidant-rich smoothie that incorporates Shikuwasa Lime powder.

Drawing from the time-honored ingredients of Okinawa to infuse the body with energy and vitality, Wellness East’s foundational ingredient of Shikuwasa Lime is at the heart of the brand. This small green fruit supports the body with immune-boosting action, along with containing strong anti-inflammatory properties and helping to protect against age-related neurodegenerative disease. Shikuawasa Lime contains nobiletin, which has been proven to lessen the risk of cancer and heart disease, making this citrus ingredient a superfood in Okinawan culture.

Wellness East’s Shikuwasa Lime is available in a potent powder form and was designed to be used daily. The powder seamlessly blends into a smoothie to help maximize the ingredient’s benefits, and it pairs well with both greens and fruits. Taken at any time of the day—be it morning, afternoon, or evening—this powder works to support everyone at any age.

We turned to wellness content creator Lucila Gamburd, founder of Nutriluli, to get two of her go-to smoothie recipes that integrate Shikuwasa Lime powder and is sure to help boost your immunity during this time of the year.
