A smoothie a day keeps the doctor away

You are probably familiar with the saying, ” An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Yes, apples are an awesome addition to a healthy lifestyle, but they are not the only thing that can help keep the doctor away! Drinking one green smoothie a day may be just the thing you need to stay vibrant and healthy.

Green smoothies are packed with essential nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are readily bioavailable and easily absorbed. Veggies like kale and spinach are not only nutrient dense, full of fiber, iron, calcium and protein, but they’re filled with chlorophyll which serves to strengthen the immune system, keep inflammation under control, increase red blood cell production and boost the cells ability to carry oxygen. The more you consume, the healthier you become.
