Most of us strive to be healthy. Even if we eat junk all week and drink one green juice one morning, it often makes us feel better about ourselves. I’ve always thought it was funny that when you eat better, most of the time you feel better. A part of me thinks it’s because the food is actually healthy. But another part of me thinks it’s because we’re told it’s the right thing to do, so our brains remind us to feel proud of ourselves. Regardless, I’m going to explore the topic of whether or not smoothies are actually as good for us as most say.

I personally love smoothies. When making them the most important factor is being conscious of what you put inside of them. Don’t add sugar or too many sugary drinks or fruit. Do research as well, look up recipes, and learn about the foods you’re consuming. Learning about food changes the way you learn more about food, you can make better decisions about what you consume. After doing my research, here are the top nine benefits of drinking smoothies.

1. Prevents dehydration

If you don’t like drinking a lot of water, you can drink a smoothie to keep yourself hydrated as well. Of course, you need water but smoothies do also keep you hydrated and you’re going to love the taste.

2. Controls cravings

Sometimes when I’m craving something sweet, I grab a smoothie instead. A lot of protein along with many nutrients decreases food cravings and helps prevents you from eating junk food. Some people use smoothies to lose weight because they make you feel full and are healthy. Also, the enzymes in several fruits help dissolve body fat and clear your circulatory system.

3. Enhances your immune system

Smoothies often include loads of vitamins and antioxidants that enhance your immune system and help your body fight off disease.

4. Curbs sleeping disorders

A lot of our health issues can be healed with food. The nutrients from the fruits and vegetables you often put in smoothies can help with lack of sleep and restlessness. For instance bananas, kiwi, and oats provide calcium and magnesium in good amounts. This induces sleep and helps maintain healthy sleeping patterns.

5. Improves skin

Our skin is the outer reflection of our inner health, so you should follow a healthy lifestyle if you want beautiful and healthy skin.

6. Boosts brain power

On the days when I drink green juice or smoothie in the morning, my thinking power and energy is spectacular! It’s honestly better than caffeine for me. Fruits and vegetables increase brain power, boost memory, increase mental alertness, and concentration.

7. Detoxifies the body

The nutrients found in the foods you use to make your smoothie help cleanse your blood and get rid of toxins in your body.

8. Full of fiber

The most common problem people suffer from today is related to upset bowels. A good amount of fiber is essential for regulating your excretory system, meaning it helps your body break down nutrients and remove the unnecessary waste.

9. Great way to incorporate healthy produce you don’t enjoy in your diet

If you don’t like to eat vegetables, putting it in a smoothie is an excellent way to consume the nutrients you need for a healthy body and mind.
