Green smoothies benefits:
Helps the body get rid of toxins
- To help our body in this process of eliminating toxins, we can rely on nutrients and phytochemical elements with a purifying and antioxidant effect. That is why it is very important to consume a good portion of vegetables every day.
A simple way to increase the intake of vegetables and fruits
- The reality is that the average intake of fruit and vegetables is much lower than it should be. The fundamental reason to incorporate a green smoothie into your diet is that it's an easy and fast way to increase your consumption of fruits and vegetables.
Increased bioavailability of nutrients
- As the ingredients are not subjected to temperature, we ensure that they contain all their micronutrients and their properties. In addition, in blended fruits and vegetables, we find a greater bioavailability of their nutrients, which will allow us to absorb them better. Plus you keep the fiber when using a blender instead of a juicer, which will keep you fuller for longer.
Improves the quality of your blood
- Including green leaves in your smoothies is key to taking full advantage of the properties of chlorophyll. A substance with a molecular structure similar to hemoglobin (blood) found in dark green leafy vegetables. When chlorophyll is consumed, the production of hemoglobin increases and as a consequence, our blood will be richer in oxygen.
