This Green Power Soup puts the power of greens to work! This is one amazing soup. Green foods are powerful antioxidants, rich in chlorophyll (a green pigment that also acts as a detox agent in the body), essential nutrients and omega 3 fatty acids.

These fatty acids are necessary for the production of hormones. A healthy hormone balance translates directly into a healthy body and life.

After adding all of these ingredients, you have an ultimate power soup to conquer those hormones.
