Fear not, Men! I made one of these for my husband, and he hasn’t started watching The Kardashians or wearing my clothes (yet). The ingredients in this drink are beneficial to everyone.

What all these amazing ingredients do:

Blueberries: A super-food loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants are essential to optimizing health by helping to combat the free radicals that can damage cellular structures as well as DNA. They are a natural disease fighting food, high in fiber, and contain a potent dose of proanthocyanidins beneficial for cognitive function, cardiovascular, and reproductive health.

Kale: Packed with antioxidants and a mega-load of vitamins and nutrients, kale is known to enhance the immune system, repair damage to cells, remove harmful products from the body, and reduce inflammation. This makes kale a real champ when providing a healthy diet for fertility, especially for those with PCOS or endometriosis. On top of that Kale packs a huge punch of vitamin K, a potent bone builder. Researchers find that women who eat diets rich in vitamin K are at lower risk of hip fracture. The body requires vitamin K to activate bone proteins needed to ward off osteoporosis, the crippling bone disease that strikes women four times more often than men.

Coconut Water: Alkalizing to the body, high in potassium, magnesium among other minerals, coconut water can help to create an environment more conducive to conception and perhaps even reduce the risk of miscarriage.

Maca Root: Nourishes the entire endocrine system, enhances fertility, and brings hormones into balance. Also increases sex drive, vitality and gives you tons of energy.

Royal Jelly: Balances hormones, supports endocrine system , helps raise estrogen levels ( great for woman who have low estrogen ) , helps increase sperm quality and testosterone levels in men .

Bee Pollen: High levels of vitamins, natural aphrodisiac, Nourishes the ovaries, help produce healthy eggs, increases fertility, increases sperm count in men and balances menstrual cycle.

Protein Powder: Builds and repairs skin, blood, bones, muscle and cartilage.

Fish Oils: Helps stabilize moods, lowers inflammation in the body, increases blood flow to uterus and promotes regular menstrual cycle, ovulation, and cervical mucus as well as increasing sperm mobility in men .
