Benefits of Dr Rhonda Patrick’s Smoothie
This smoothie is extremely high in magnesium, which is at the centre of the chlorophyll molecule and is a cofactor for over 300 enzymes in the body!
Magnesium is critical to our overall health, but over 45% of the population is deficient in magnesium. The leafy greens in this smoothie also make it high in folate.
When folate is absent, uracil is used for DNA replication, which actually causes DNA strands to break. This smoothie prevents that problem.
Dr Rhonda Patrick also mentions the smoothie is high loads of other vitamins and minerals, but in her video, she discusses some of the other lesser-known benefits and ingredients such as hormetic plant compounds, prebiotics, and hydrolyzed collagen.

A cold press juicer (also known as a masticating or triturating juicer) has a unique way of extracting the juice from fruit and vegetables. A manual juicer is a device powered by your own muscle that provides significantly more nutrients than an electric juicer. Depending on how much elbow grease you’re happy to spend on your morning juice, you can choose between two different types of juicer: manual or electric.
