Why Are GLO Smoothie Bowls So Beneficial? Here at GLO we are focused on healing digestion, reducing inflammation, detoxing from sugar, and infusing the body with nutrient-dense ingredients that promote sustainable energy. GLO Smoothie bowls are blended in a blender, making them pre-digested and easier/quicker to absorb the nutrition. Many people have sluggish metabolisms, especially in the am, so this is a great way to start the day with LIVEFOOD/RAWFOOD/prana-filled ingredients.
