11 Health Benefits Of Green Smoothies
Are you ready for a change?
Are you fed up with eating foods that leave you feeling sluggish?
Do you want to eat better but have trouble sticking to the program?
Do you desire a healthy and clean-eating lifestyle, but don’t know where to start?
I have been where you are, and I know how overwhelming it can feel. For me personally I noticed a massive transformation when I started drinking green smoothies every day – I was buzzing with energy, felt super healthy and everyone started commenting on how good my skin looked. It truly only takes a few minutes every day and you can change you and your family’s life for the better.
For a powerful vitamin punch sip on a green smoothie at least three times a week as part of your new found healthy ritual – I like to sip mine while listening to meditations on my iPod.
Still need convincing? Here are some of the health benefits of Green Smoothies
- Natural energy booster. Stop reaching for sugary snacks to get past that 3pm slump – instead take a mason jar filled with your favourite green smoothie blend.
- Natural weight loss. Gulping down this liquid salad which is bursting with healthy fats, protein and fibre is a complete meal and leaves you feeling full and satisfied for hours – great for controlling those unpredictable cravings.
- Nutrient injection. The green smoothie fuels your body with complete nutrients -anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, live enzymes, phytonutrients and amino acids. The molecule of chlorophyll has only one atom that makes it different from a molecule of human blood. According to the teachings of Dr. Ann Wigmore, to consume chlorophyll is like receiving a healthy blood transfusion.
- Boost immunity and stay healthy all-year-long. Green smoothies are packed with disease-fighting antioxidants. The phytonutrients in leafy greens boost your body’s immune system and keep it functioning properly.
- Fast and convenient. Hands down— green smoothies are the best fast food and you will have one blended up before you can make it down to your local juice bar.. It takes less than 5 minutes to make a green smoothie (and clean up!) and they’re super easy to take on the go– especially when you prep ahead.
- Nourishing skin food. Green smoothies will revitalise you and help remove toxins, all you need is an open mind and a blender. The flood of vitamins build healthy skin – you will be left with a healthy glow that is soft and supple.
- Affordable superfood. They are an inexpensive super drink, which provides you with a steady stream of energy.
- Heal illnesses. They are a gift from nature, wrapped in a little sunshine and a whole lot of chlorophyll which promotes healthy cellular renewal. The humble greens are overlooked, they are a super food. Green leafy veggies are great because they have tons of cancer fighting properties, immune system boosting vitamins and minerals. Upping green leaf intake has been shown to reduce heart disease and prevent other degenerative diseases.
- Buy less beauty products. You will save money on expensive face creams, because you are getting the nourishment from the inside out.
- Daily dose of greens. By drinking a big glass of green smoothie every day, you will consume enough greens for the day to nourish your body.
- Simplifies life. No need for an overwhelming stock of superfoods and jars of supplement. PLUSW there is no messy juicing equipment to clean up, which gives you more time to enjoy life.
