Studies have shown that overweight individuals and those with chronic illnesses do not consume all of their daily servings of fruits and vegetables, but instead consume way too much saturated fats and sugary foods. Many individuals tend to overeat and overindulge themselves with these types of foods, which can quickly develop into unhealthy lifestyles as a result. Unfortunately many of these unhealthy eating habits and sedentary lifestyles are being passed down to their children.
In order to boost the immune system, rid the body of toxins and decrease unhealthy levels of cholesterol, daily recommended servings of fruits and vegetables should be consumed. Often time, these vegetables and fruits are blended together in green smoothies and fruit smoothies for a nutritional drink. Blending leafy greens and fruits together in a juicer is another great way to get all the nutritional value from these vegetables and fruits.
The healthy benefits of drinking green drinks made from fresh vegetables and fruits have been shown to increase the quality of an individual's life. The toxicity levels in the body are decreased, as the drink acts like a detoxification drink that flushes waste from the body. Antioxidants from the leafy greens and fruits used in green drinks also help to give an added boost to the individual's immune system.
The alkaline levels in green vegetables are essential to the digestive system of the body. The wide variety of vitamins, trace mineral and nutrients found in leafy green foods are essential to fighting the aging process, certain cancers and chronic arthritis and digestive system diseases. The combination of leafy green vegetables and fruits in a green drink have shown to reduce weight and bad levels of cholesterol. Green drink advocates contend that individuals who drink green drinks also begin to notice the change in their skin, hair, nails and their overall stress levels drop.
Drinking green drinks can cut down on the craving that lead to overindulgence and overeating. As the body starts to experience a healthy surge of nutrients and vitamins from drinking these drinks, the detoxifications process begins. The body rids itself of processed foods, high sugary foods, and begins to drop weight. The cravings for good healthy foods are a given with drinking these drinks.
Many individuals reported an increase of healthy skin that glowed, and had other individuals commenting on their weight loss and how healthy their hair looked and their skin looked. These individuals soon become green drink enthusiasts and are forever leaving unhealthy eating behind them in favor of the benefits of a healthy lifestyle of green drinks. Many individuals who take to drinking green drinks also tend to exercise more and eat less at meal time.
These individuals experience less flu symptoms and less work missed due to colds and other infectious diseases. Green drinks also make the individual more mentally alert and have higher and longer levels of energy. A healthy diet that includes moderate exercise and green drinks tends to be the kind of healthy life that provides preventive measures against obesity and infectious diseases for most individuals.
