GREEN SMOOTHIES BENEFITS.

Green smoothies offer pure nutrients, vitamins, and minerals which are needed for quick and effective weight loss. They also keep cravings of junk foods away, therefore maintaining a good body weight.
Drinking green smoothies is a way of consuming vegetables and fruits without even knowing it. So often when you visit the doctor, you will be advised to eat more vegetables and fruits. Most people have no problem with fruits since they taste good, but by combine vegetables in a green smoothie, the taste of the vegetables need to blend with some of the fruits, so when you drink the smoothie without noticing the vegetables.
Easy to make
The only equipment you need is a blender. Identify the fruits and vegetables you want to use, place them in the blender and you will have a tasty green smoothie.
Green smoothies provide lasting energy. Fruits are known to be good sources of energy but because they contain lots of sugars which are quickly metabolized, they can only give short bursts of energy. When used together with vegetables, a balanced sugar content is obtained which enables long-lasting energy to be produced.
They are easy to digest. This is because the smoothie is already blended and therefore the digestive system has very little to do.
Increased fiber intake
Green smoothies use the whole fruit and vegetable during preparation and therefore the whole fiber is consumed. Fibers from fruits and vegetables keep the bowels function well and help in improving the colon health.

The fibers and nutrients in green smoothies enable proper disposal of toxins from the body and not through the skin. This enables the skin to maintain its clear and perfect condition.

Green smoothies are alkaline in nature and in case you are experiencing a heartburn or acid reflux, the smoothies neutralize the acid and put out the burning pain.

It is known that many drinks can leave you hungry within an hour of consumption. Smoothies are different because they retain their fiber and therefore fill you up for a longer period.
