5 Benefits of Green Smoothies

Recently a few people had mentioned to me they are "sick of eating salads", to that I said, "that happens, and vegetable smoothies are a great way to counter this salad burnout" Substituting a smoothie for a salad is a great compliment since you are still eating raw produce, which means you aren't cooking all of the nutrition from the foods you are eating. 

1. Enhanced Nutrient Absorption

Green vegetables like kale, spinach, collard greens, and lettuce are nutrient powerhouses. When blended in a smoothie, the nutrients in these leafy greens are released and readily absorbed into the bloodstream.

2. Increased Energy

With enhanced nutrient absorption, you become invigorated and energized! Just two weeks of drinking smoothies a few days a week and you will notice improved energy

3. Improved Digestion

Smoothies, as opposed to juices, utilize the whole fruits and veggies that go into them.  The abundant fiber in leafy greens, when consumed in a hydrating smoothie,  will help you reach optimal digestibility.

4. You Can Infuse With Smoothie Powders

Smoothie powders are a great way to add more nutritional value and with the correct blends of fruits and vegetables, they can taste pretty good too! Alive N vibrant is a locally based company that sells their powders at Peak Physique if you are interested in obtaining some powerful smoothie powders!

5.Boost Your Immune System

Loaded with phytonutrients, leafy greens strengthen your immune system and help you stave off illness all year long.
