PMS Soothing Smoothie Dr. Travis Stork: We’re covering all the colors of your health today from the colors that could be a warning sign to the ones that can help you or your body. And we’re continuing on with color red. Now it’s time for a must know remedy that uses red strawberries. It’s finally time for the PMS Smoothie. Liz Vaccariello: There you go. Dr. Jim Sears: Yes it is about time. Dr. Drew Ordon: If this works, yeehaa! Dr. Jim Sears: Please let this work. Liz Vaccariello: And if it doesn’t work -- Dr. Lisa Masterson: Well you know what we all know that there are lots of prescription medications and over-the-counter medications but it’s great to try something natural and this PMS Smoothie is backed up by research, the researchers at the University of Massachusetts, God bless them, studied women going through PMS for ten years. God bless them. And what they found is that diets high in calcium and Vitamin D really help to alleviate PMS. So we’ve created a smoothie that’s chockfull of calcium and Vitamin D. It starts with low fat yogurt which is very high in calcium, a good source of magnesium and Vitamin B and proven to decrease PMS related depression. So, you know guys when we start to get a little down and really PMS I think stands for pamper me someone, anyone. Dr. Travis Stork: So how about -- maybe for more of pampering then. Dr. Lisa Masterson: But to add to that to make it a little sweeter you can actually try something, molasses are actually very high in calcium as well as adding sweetness to it, they actually have a 137 mg of calcium which is equivalent to a serving size of cottage cheese. So, that’s been a fantastic sweetener. Dr. Drew Ordon: Now Lisa isn’t this very similar to something else that we had, our orgasm smoothie. Liz Vaccariello: Well, if you have an orgasm during PMS I think you might be happier. Dr. Drew Ordon: They know -- yes. Dr. Lisa Masterson: Exactly, did I give you -- Dr. Travis Stork: Oh, I’m trying to see how this works now. Dr. Lisa Masterson: Yeah. Dr. Travis Stork: I’m recommending starting -- Dr. Lisa Masterson: Wait we are not finished with the ingredients okay. Dr. Travis Stork: Well I want -- I am sorry. Dr. Lisa Masterson: We also have oranges in there because the Vitamin C helps with the absorption of the calcium. The bananas will also give you another source of magnesium and help say bye-bye to PMS and the cinnamon will help also with the PMS. Dr. Drew Ordon: I think what you say is PMS messes you up. Liz Vaccariello: Right. Dr. Drew Ordon: And that’s a lot of stuff in there. Dr. Travis Stork: Good stuff though. Dr. Lisa Masterson: And the strawberries you know, you can either put them in there or dip them in a little chocolate. Alright, it’s good all around. Dr. Drew Ordon: Lisa can we drink? Dr. Lisa Masterson: Absolutely. Say bye-bye to PMS. Dr. Drew Ordon: Down with PMS. Dr. Lisa Masterson: That’s right. You know, that just makes your cheeks smile. Liz Vaccariello: Really.
