A yummy anti-inflammatory smoothie with lesser known superfoods Cat's Claw and Schisandra berry. I like to eat it with a spoon, pudding style!
Cat's Claw (Uncaria tomentosa) is immune-enhancing and antioxidant, great if you're recovering from the flu that is going around, or for chronic fatigue.
Schisandra berry (Schisandra chinensis) is a super berry traditionally used in TCM, a fantastic antioxidant and adaptogen, and massive support for the liver to enhance phase I and II detoxification.

1 teaspoon powdered Schisandra berry
juice of 1 lime

There are a great many so-called superfoods unknown to many people - they're called medicinal HERBS and they are cheaper and in many cases better than the stuff you buy for $150/kg from the health food shop!! You can buy powdered cat's claw and schisandra berry for $35 - 38/kg from Australherbs, around the same price per kilogram as macadamias.
