Let’s check out the outstanding benefits of green smoothies
Fills you up and help let it go
Green smoothies, as opposed to juices, are a complete food and so the fiber content is still intact. This does not just help with keeping you fuller for longer, but also ease the digestive process. In case of constipation, some people often add aloe vera to ease the digestive tract into action. Some recommend adding cranberry to green smoothies to help prevent urinary tract infections but this is yet to be proven.
Increases veggies & fruit intake
Regular consumption of green smoothies forms a good habit of eating greens. After a few weeks of drinking green smoothies, most people start to crave and enjoy eating more greens. The fruits dominate the veggies in terms of content and flavor, but the greens balance out the sweetness, making green smoothies one of the most palatable dishes for people of all ages. Besides, they help keep you hydrated and fuller for longer; as a result, your cravings for junk foods, unhealthy and greasy fast foods find a way to break away from your mind.
Veggies and fruits contain vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals that not only keep your body in optimum health, but also fight against a number of chronic diseases and inflammation. Moreover, the green smoothies help balance cholesterol level, lower high blood pressure, promote cardiovascular, gut and colon health.
The one-stop beauty drink
Not only do green smoothies help you take some inches off your waist or keep your age at bay, but also are immensely nutrifying and kind to your skin and hair. The natural ingredients including veggies and fruits help detoxify body and purify blood that give you glowing skin, reduce hair fall, promote hair growth, stronger bones and nails.
Easy and quick
Making a green smoothie is easy enough; provided you have a blender, of course! Just throw in your choice of fruits and veggies in the blender and treat yourself to a glass of smooth goodness of health. It takes less than 5 minutes to blend and clean up, as opposed to juicing, which is time-consuming and messy.
Cheap and portable
Homemade smoothies are cheaper than the ones bought over the counter and, at most times, healthier even. Drinking a glass a day will give you all the vitamins you need and is a more economically better option than buying multi-vitamins. Besides, they can be stored up to 24 hours in glass or stainless steel flasks and can be easily carried to the gym, park, work, or on the move.
