Five Reasons to Reach For a Green Smoothie to Fast Track
Your Health  
by Brendan McCarthy
nutritious and by far the fastest and easiest way to jumpstart yourself to a whole
new healthy revitalized YOU!

1) Fresh food

Problem:

We usually don't consume the amount of greens we need on a daily basis. Normally,
we cook or make them into salads. Heat kills a large amount of live nutrients so the
more greens are cooked, the more nutritional value it has as a cardboard! The same
way goes for the pasteurized 100% fruit juices seen on your store shelf and most
green supplements which are both prepared in high temperature. Green supplements
can give some added nutrients if you can't cover the variety of greens, but it's not
enough to replace the real thing. Salad is a healthier option, but dark greens are not
so palatable. Tendency is we cover it with oils and creamy dressing, but there is just
so much you eat before you get tired of the flavors. Some only eat the sweet greens
such as Romanian lettuce which contain fewer nutrients then the dark greens. The
less delicious the taste the more vital nutrients it contains.

Solution:

Green smoothies; Blending your favorite fruits can easily cover the taste of quite a
large amount of greens. The smooth texture is also a given benefit because it helps
the body to absorb it quickly without exerting extra energy to digest it.

2) Virgin source of protein and nutrients

This power health drink can pass off as a meal on its own. Depending on your
imagination with fruits and greens it can cover the A to Z of minerals and vitamins.
You may ask "Don't you need meat for protein?" Let me ask you, "Do powerful
mammals like Oxen, Horses, Elephants and Gorillas eat meat to develop its
muscles?" Green veges give us all the essential amino acids that our body turns into
protein, just like any other animal. Meat is an overdose of second hand protein
packed with high acids and animal toxins. Eating too much meat makes you fat easily
and can lead to various liver and kidney diseases.

3) Alkalinity

As said earlier eating meat contaminates the body with acids. High acids deteriorates
our blood cells, drain's the body of energy, and pretty much is the route cause of our
sicknesses. Greens and fruits are the strongest food sources of alkalinity and
neutralize the acids in the blood. To give you an idea of how much alkaline food we
should have each meal is around 80% alkaline based.

4) Antioxidants

Ever wonder why no matter how much you diet and exercise, you can't seem to
remove those extra folds? It's because your body protects itself from excess toxins
by wrapping fatty cells around it. Besides gaining weight, severe amount of toxins
can lead to top silent killers such as heart diseases, diabetes and cancer. Let prevent
ourselves from being part of these statistics!

Antioxidants in green smoothies such as Carotenoids - Lycopene, Lutein,
Beta-Carotene, Vitamin E and C, selenium, anthocyanins and many more are like
magnets that collect toxins in our body and brings them down to our human sewage,
the digestive tracks, where the fiber of the green sweeps it clean out of our system.

Being green helps you loose weight, boost the immune system, keep bones and
muscles stronger, aid digestion, and have better mental clarity and high energy levels.

5) Increased Sex Drive

Reducing junk food and replacing it with healthy alternatives removes preservatives,
refined salt and sugar, and other chemical downers that lower your sex drive. So far
studies on this have shown that the majority of people that have replaced at least
one of their meals a day with one of me green smoothie recipes have said that their
libido has dramatically increased. A healthy body results to stronger cardiac and
reproductive systems plus better regulations of hormones. A healthier body, better
moods, added confidence and great stamina in the sack is what you can expect from
green smoothies.

Jumpstart to health

Adding a green smoothie to your diet is an easy way to jumpstart your health. Take
that step and replace one coffee (or beer or wine) for something this natural and
you'll find your body slowly craving for more. You'll eventually unfold to healthier
habits instead and spare yourself those forced guilt techniques. Share it with your
family and friends. Live a refreshing green life! Cheers!
