DRINKING GREENS

 

Greens are leaves that contain chlorophyll, and they are probably the most neglected food group in the entire supermarket. Yet it is these humble green warriors which make magic for our cells.

The benefits of chlorophyll are countless, ranging from its ability to deliver oxygen throughout the body to being able to reduce the binding of carcinogens to DNA in the liver and other organs to protecting us from low-level X-rays radiation. And one of the best ways to get more chlorophyll in your diet is, you guessed it, by drinking greens.

Why does drinking a green drink or smoothie really great for our bodies?

This is because the blending breaks down the cellular walls of the leaves, leaving you with the finest particles of nutrients which are delivered straight to your cells, and of course, all the living nutrients are still intact and not destroyed by heating.

BENEFITS OF GREENS

  • GREAT SOURCE OF PROTEIN

The building blocks that make up proteins are just the same whether they came from a plant or an animal. In fact, spinach is 44 % protein, the highest of all green leafy vegetables. So go ahead and throw in an extra handful of spinach in that smoothie.

  • GREAT SOURCE OF FIBER

Regular consumption of fiber is crucial to our health. Fiber acts like a sponge, soaking up the toxins in our digestive tract, especially in the colon, and eliminating them from the body. Most people consume very small amount of fiber in their diets which can results in poor digestion, constipation and irregular eliminations. Green smoothies help alleviate this problem by adding fiber in a gradual and healthier way than a pill or powder can do.

  • FABULOUS ALKALIZER

If our bodies become too acidic, we become prone to illnesses and infections. Green smoothies contain fruits and dark leafy greens that rank high on the alkaline scale; one could easily maintain healthy pH by consuming them daily.

  • WEIGHT LOSS PROMOTER

Drinking green smoothies regulates your appetite so you don’t experience highs and lows during the day. Their balancing ability makes green smoothies perfect for meal replacement in a weight loss regimen.

  • HEALTHIER SKIN, HAIR AND NAILS

The ability to provide fiber and alkalize the body makes green smoothies a fantastic addition to your beauty routine. Instead of applying a potion externally, think of green smoothies as drinking the potion internally. The cleansing and detoxifying ability of dark leafy greens aid with the elimination of toxins and establishes healthy intestinal flora. As a result, your skin will become clearer, your hair will get shinier and softer, and your nails will grow faster. Who wouldn’t want that?

Do you want smooth, blemish-free skin? Within weeks of constantly drinking blended greens, countless subjects reported lightening of spots, smoother skin and radiant complexion.

  • YOU FEEL CALM, HAPPY AND PEACEFUL

Degenerative diseases like cancer thrive and grow in an acidic state. A healthy body is a happy body. Research has proven that subjects who are in an optimal health condition still feel in control and calm even in the face of seemingly tough life events; while those who are not healthy, tend to feel unhappy even when they are rewarded with promotions or striking the lottery.

  • GETS RID OF UNNECESSARY ADDICTIONS.

Your body is made up of billions of tiny cells. Every cell is you; they combine to make up your tissues, organs, bones, face, hair, legs etc. When nutrition is improved, the body is strengthened on a cellular level. When your cells know what it is like to receive first class nutrition, they will not want to go back to the old ways!

  • SMOOTH BOWELS

This is probably the most common benefit experienced by far. Blended greens add a whole lot of fiber to the diet, and fiber is essential for smooth bowel movements. Constipation now becomes a thing of the past!

  • ENERGY, ENERGYAND MORE ENERGY!

If you think that green smoothies cannot give you energy for that workout, think again! Or better still, try it before you judge it. It is true that due to the low caloric levels of greens, they cannot fill us for long. But the trick here is to combine it with sweet fruits– which supplies us with simple sugars.

This is one of the best pre-workout foods and supplies us with simple sugars to burn immediately as fuel.

  • RELEASE UNWANTED WEIGHT!

For those who have reached a plateau in releasing weight, try this! When your cells are nourished, cravings for unhealthy food become less or non-existent. Proper nourishment of the cells is vital to maintaining a healthy weight.
