The right combinations can provide you with high-octane fuel to invigorate and rejuvenate the entire body. This recipe, combining modern nutraceutical supplements, whole foods, and herbs from ancient systems of medicine, provides one such powerful fuel.
Your Body is a System
All systems in nature possess the following three forces: Transport, Process, and Storage. Transport governs all those elements involved in movement, input and output (I/O), and locomotion. Process governs all those elements involved in conversion and transformation from one state to another. Storage governs all those elements providing structure and those involved in storing information, matter, or energy. In a modern computer, transport involves input and output, such as the keyboard and mouse for input and the display for output. The central processing unit (CPU) enables a conversion of information from one form to another. The hard-disk drive and the random access memory (RAM) provide the storage for both long-term and short-term data.
When we cook, the pot provides the storage and structure. The fire provides the mechanism to process or convert the ingredients inside the pot into other elements. The cook’s stirring of additional ingredients is the transport element, providing the input and output. In the human body, sensing our environment and reacting to it is the aspect of transport. Processing is involved in the digestion of food as well as metabolism. Our brain cells and fat cells provide us with storage to think and to conserve energy, respectively. In summary, our body is a system, and the three forces that govern our body pervade all systems in nature

This smoothie recipe is designed to affect all of the three forces which govern your body’s systems.
