Spring is here and it is Green Smoothie Season! Need some motivation to get back into it? Here are 10 huge benefits:
1. Enhanced Nutrient Absorption
Leafy greens are nutrient powerhouses. When blended in a smoothie, the nutrients are released and readily absorbed into the bloodstream.
2. Increased Energy
With enhanced nutrient absorption, you become invigorated and energized!
3. Improved Digestion
When consumed in a hydrating smoothie, the abundant fiber will help you reach optimal digestibility.
4. Boost Your Immune System
Loaded with phytonutrients to help you stave off illness all year long.
5. Healthy Bones
rich in calcium and vitamin K, which is necessary in ensuring calcium reaches your bones.
6. Heart Health
Can significantly lower cholesterol, decreasing your risk of heart attack or stroke.
7. Get that Glow
Full of antioxidants to reduce the signs of aging as well as hydrate your skin.
8. Consume those Veggies without even Realizing it!
Greens have chlorophyll that replenishes and rebuilds red blood cells, rejuvenating your body.
9. Reduce Unhealthy Cravings
When you consume whole, unprocessed, nourishing foods, you naturally start to crave those healthy foods over unhealthy sweet, salty, and fatty ones.
10. Mind over Matter
Believe it or not, consuming green smoothies makes you more likely to engage in other healthy habits. The human mind thrives on consistency, so one healthy habit leads to another!
