Here are some of the health benefits of green smoothies.
Greens are the perfect food. Greens are rich in vitamins and minerals.
Greens contain powerful antioxidants and vital live enzymes.
Greens are loaded with amino acids (proteins).
Greens are easy to digest. When you blend greens most of the cells are ruptured, making the nutrients easy for the body to assimilate. You literally start absorbing them in your mouth.
Greens contain vast amounts of Chlorophyll. A molecule of chlorophyll closely resembles a molecule of human blood. So hop into those greens!
Greens are low in calories! Yipee!
Greens give you energy and vitality.
Greens are alkalizing. Boosting your alkaline buffers helps to reduce the stress on tissues and organs and helps combat disease and infection.
Greens contain powerful natural anti-inflammatories that can assist with aches and pains.
Bowel regularity. The fibre in raw greens, fruits and vegetables moves food through the intestinal tract and helps rid the body of toxins by binding and bulking them, and eliminating them through our very own garbage disposal.
Green smoothies are a low GI alternative to juices. The fibre in the whole vegetables slows down the assimilation of sugars into the bloodstream and help to stabilize blood sugar levels. Great for diabetics!
Greens help improve skin tone and reduce blemishes.
Greens assist with healthy nails making them stronger with less breaking, chipping and flaking.
Greens keep your hair healthy and shiny. I have experienced the pigment returning to grey hairs! Some friends have told me it has cleared up dandruff issues as well.
Green smoothies can reduce the cravings for sweet sugary foods. “Win win” I say!
Green smoothies can reduce the consumption of processed foods and hydrogenated fats.
Some studies suggest greens increase your sex drive. If that doesn’t make you grab for your blender I don’t know what will!
Green smoothies make less mess and take less time than juicing. Just throw everything in your blender and switch on!
Green smoothies are the quickest way to sneak greens into children and “green skeptic” adults.
Green smoothies are delicious and filling! They make a wonderful healthy meal.
By introducing a green smoothie a day into your lifetstyle, you will be giving yourself a healthy advantage like nothing else. If you are still not convinced, check this out: The Boutenkos conducted their own independent study called The Roseburg Study, where they supplied a cross section of people with one litre of green smoothie every day for a month.
Most of these people were eating a mainstream Standard American Diet and changed absolutely nothing else about their diet and lifestyle. Some were smokers; and many were in state of sub-health, complaining of symptoms of diabetes, heart conditions, depression, and many other ailments, that were extremely debilitating in some instances.
The testimonies about the radical change in health and reduction and eradication of symptoms from these people is astounding, and speak volumes about the extraordinary power of live raw greens to restore health. The big message from that study – even if you change nothing else about your life, you can reap enormous health benefits by blendinggreen smoothies. Of course, if you make other healthy changes, you will reap more rewards.
