The Magic of Greens: 8 Benefits of Drinking Green Smoothies

by Linda Loo, Contributor to Holistic Nutrition on

Do you want to feel happy, peaceful, calm and in control no matter what happens? Do you wish that somehow, you knew a way to stop all those crazy cravings for sweet, fatty snacks at erratic times of the day?

Would you believe it if I tell you that this is possible, permanently, and can happen in the comfort of your own home?

And while you are doing this, you are also building your body with the best life-giving brand new raw materials available!

Greens are leaves that contain chlorophyll, and they are probably the most neglected food group in the entire supermarket.

But yet it is these humble green warriors which make magic for our cells.

Why is drinking a green smoothie better than just eating greens?

Because the blending actually 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 these living nutrients are still intact and not destroyed by heating.

1. You feel calm and peaceful

The chlorophyll in greens deliver oxygen to your cells and puts the body in a slightly alkaline state. This is a state in which optimal health is achieved and in which cancer cells do not thrive.

Degenerative diseases like cancer thrive and grow in an acidic state.

2. You feel happy for no reason

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.

3. You adopt a more positive outlook in life

Things which you used to sweat over now seem smaller. You have grown in capacity to handle things because your body is now constructed with newer, better materials.

And did I mention that your cells are rejoicing with the change?
