Top 10 Benefits of Green Smoothies

Emily Hurd | Nov 8 2020 | Tags: green

As part of our Ultimate Guide to Green Smoothies, let's look at the top 10 benefits of green smoothies and what they can offer your health and well-being.

Here at SmoothieBox, we love the boost a green smoothie gives our energy levels and immune system, as well trying a whole host of delicious flavour combinations. 

Let's take a look at our top ten benefits of green smoothies.

1. Increase Your Fruit And Vegetable Intake

On a typical day, people find it hard to take their fruits and vegetables. Doctors recommend getting five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables every day. This might be difficult to achieve as it calls for a lot of chewing! Green smoothies are a much more convenient way to prepare and take your daily dose of fruits and vegetables.

2. Improves Hydration

Our bodies need water to function correctly. Water makes up a large percentage of our bodies. Medics advise that we take at least two point seven liters of water, including the water we consume in foods and beverages. Since most people do not like the bland taste of water, a green smoothie is a great alternative to keep you hydrated.

3. Improves Digestion

Smoothies have high levels of fiber in them. The fiber in green smoothies comes mainly from the leafy greens used to make the drinks. If you suffer from a digestion disorder having a smoothie first thing in the morning will boost your gut health and give you a better time digesting anything else you eat during the day.

4. Revitalizes Your Body

Your body will react in many positive ways to the green smoothies. If you have blood pressure issues, you will notice an improvement. Besides, you will also observe that the smoothie will heighten your mental focus. You will also monitor your immunity getting stronger. More importantly, you will not have a cold every other month or suffer from allergies as severely as you did before.

5. Protects Against Free Radical Damage

Leafy greens have many antioxidants, which have a positive impact on the body. One of the advantages of antioxidants is that they protect the body from free radical damage, which is a fancy term for unstable molecules in our body cells that can cause cancer.

6. Reliefs Symptoms of Depression

The world has reached new levels of mental health awareness these last couple of months. One of the benefits of green smoothies is that they contain folic acid that helps relieve the signs of depression.

7. Better Clearer Skin

Green smoothies contain vitamin C and E, antioxidants, and fiber, all of which work together to offer you a better complexion meaning clearer skin with less acne.

8. Increased Energy

Processed foods often bog down your digestive system leaving you feeling tired as your body struggles to digest it. Green smoothies have enough fiber to give you a steady energy supply throughout the day.

9. Excellent Source Of Antioxidants and minerals

Dark leafy greens have a rich supply of minerals that support bones and other body parts. Minerals that are in your green smoothie include calcium, magnesium, and some phosphorus.

10. They taste great! 

Green smoothie are not just great for your health, they also taste delicious. We love trying different combinations of fruits and vegetables and have listed some of favourite recipes on our blog.
