Green Smoothies are rapidly gaining popularity on world health forums. A surprisingly simple green smoothie that includes organic fruit, organic green leafy vegetables, and water (recommended fruit: Vegetable Ratio is 6:4 in). Despite their simplicity, green smoothies provide many nutritional benefits and create a healthier lifestyle. These benefits include weight loss, energy boost, appetite reduction, glowing skin, and more.
NUTRITIOUS. The ingredients in the smoothie are all in their raw form, making them more nutritious. Excessive heat during cooking destroys many of the nutrients in our food. It is packed with beneficial vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents, phytonutrients, fiber, water, and more! They are also mixed with chlorophyll, which is structurally similar to hemoglobin in human blood. So drinking green smoothies is like getting a blood transfusion.
WEIGHT LOSS. If you’re trying to lose weight, you’ll be surprised to know that green smoothies are a great way to achieve this goal. They have high water content and are filled with leafy greens, which you can eat a lot without fear of gaining weight. They are also high in fiber, which keeps you full for longer and reduces cravings.
DETOXIFY. Our bodies try to get rid of toxins naturally, but overdosing on any poison affects the body’s detoxification system. The fact is that you can completely support the body to detox and eliminate toxins that cause weight gain and harm to health. You can detox if you want to live better and longer. After using the nutrients from the food you take in, your body has to get rid of the leftovers and waste from the digestive process. If not eliminated properly and completely, undigested food can linger and leave toxins and waste in the body. But thanks to green smoothies, you absorb them into the body, strengthen the digestive system and eliminate toxins.
POWERFUL, RADIANT. A healthy body is always radiant, full of energy and vitality. I believe that natural, healthy eating is the secret to inner health and outer radiance. When you eat natural, raw, simple foods, you will look better and younger. When you eat foods that keep your cells clean and healthy, you’ll look radiant regardless of your age. The human body is well-suited to an early diet consisting of only fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts. With these healthy, natural foods, our bodies grow and absorb all the nutrients they need to keep them free of toxins and look the best. When you start drinking green smoothies, one of the first changes you will find is the quality of your skin. Healthy eating and living will remove the traces of years from your face, eliminate wrinkles, fade age spots and help your skin rejuvenate. Skin becomes soft and acne-free. Your eyes also become brighter and start to sparkle. Dark circles and puffiness will diminish, and the yellow color in the whites of your eyes will fade as well. Inside the body, cells are rejuvenated, helping internal organs work more efficiently.
EASY TO DIGEST. Green smoothies are much easier to digest and metabolize than solid foods. Many people cannot effectively digest solid foods, so the nutrients are not fully absorbed by the body. Green drinks, in blended form, are liquid and easier to digest. Smoothies are delicious drinks, high vitamins that the nutrients in them are already starting to be absorbed by the body even while the Green Smoothie is still in your mouth!
IMPROVES DIGITALIZATION. Today’s Standard American Diet (SAD) is causing many digestive problems like heartburn, acid reflux, colitis, Crohn’s disease, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). These are just a few. The root of most digestive problems is low levels of hydrochloric acid produced in the stomach. If stomach acid is not produced enough during digestion, much of the food that we pass and enters the digestive tract remains undigested, producing gas, bloating, and other symptoms. Once undigested foods accumulate as plaque on the lining of the intestines, they set the stage for disease. Processed foods, excessive gluten, protein, fried foods, and other unhealthy fats are the main causes. Since Green Smoothies are pure, your body can easily absorb the nutrients it needs for optimal health.
MOISTURIZING. Staying hydrated gives you energy and helps ensure your brain, muscles, digestive system, and immune system are all working properly. Dehydration can be very dangerous. Drinking soda or coffee, eating processed foods, and smoking dehydrate the body. The best way to know if you are sufficiently hydrated is to check the color of your urine. If the color of your urine is very pale, yellow, or clear, you are properly hydrated. You certainly don’t want your urine to be dark yellow. It is easy for us to forget to drink water during the day because of our busy lives. Many people do not like to drink water because it can be bland, tasteless but it is essential for the body to stay healthy and function properly. To improve the taste of the water, simply squeeze some fresh lemon. Green smoothies help you rehydrate your body thanks to their high water content.
DELICIOUS. The sweetness of the fruit in the smoothie softens the taste of the greens. Many people can’t help the green smoothie when seeing and tasting it for the first time! Even kids love the taste of smoothies.
EASY TO DO. It takes five minutes or less to prepare a smoothie, and cleanup is quick and easy, too. If you put all your ingredients in one bag in the evening, all you need to do the next morning is toss them in the blender. After grinding is complete, you just need to rinse the blender. Storing ingredients, blending, and cleaning take just five minutes a day.
MULTIPLE RECIPES. There are over a hundred Green Smoothie recipes in cooking books and many more online that you can experiment with. That means your taste never has to get bored. You can combine fruits, vegetables, and water in different recipes for each day of the year. I save my favorite recipes on cards and can use them over and over again.
