Which Blast can lower cholesterol and give me energy?

I would like to consume one blast a day to cover both the cholesterol and energy situations...what do you suggest as a blend that will cover both issues and is yet palatable....I wouldn't want to mix suggested blasts for each situation and have too much or too little of the requirements for success.

Almost any blend that follows our recommended greens/fruits/boosts formula will benefit you as fruits and veggies are fiber-rich and contain natural sugars and chlorophyll to help give you some energy. These foods are not only filled with fiber, but also are loaded with antioxidants...two important components to help reduce cholesterol. Focus on soluble fiber - this type binds "bad" LDL cholesterol to help remove it from your body! Oats, apples and flax seed are great additions to a cholesterol-lowering NutriBlast. They contain a great amount of soluble fiber, which helps bind cholesterol and remove it from your body! Grapes, strawberries, and citrus fruits also contain pectin, a type of soluble fiber most noted in apple skins, that lowers LDL. Check out this link from Harvard that distinguishes the breakdown of fiber found in several foods. http://huhs.harvard.edu/assets/file/ourservices/service_nutrition_fiber.pdf Outside of NutriBlasting, I'd recommend cutting back on animal based foods (meats, dairy, eggs, etc.) as these contain more saturated fats and additional dietary cholesterol. With continuous NutriBlasting...over time, you will more than likely see your numbers drop :) If you'd like you could add in some maca (an adaptogen shown to provide that added pep in your step if you're feeling low energy). You could also try some brewed and chilled green tea, some raw cacao powder or nibs, or some raw or steamed beets to your Blast as an energy booster. These may or may not help w/ energy depending on what the underlying cause of your low energy is determined. I'd start with something like this (I haven't tasted so not sure the end result - feel free to make any adjustments you'd like!) 1 cup spinach 1/4 cup rolled oats 1/2 small beet 1/2 cup berries of your choice 1 Tbsp of your favorite greens powder (spirulina, chlorella, barley grass, etc.) 1-2 Tbsp hemp seeds 1/4 avocado (optional) 12oz coconut water *Sorry for such a long winded answer if you all you were looking for was a recipe ;)
