5 Reasons you should drink smoothies
Why are we so sick?
With heart disease killing more than 7.1million per year and expecting to rise to 11 million by 2030, cancer killing more than 7.9 million per year and 2 out of every 3 Americans over the age of 20 are classed as obese we are in the middle of a serious health epidemic!!
The Vast majority of these diseases and conditions are preventable and can be directly linked to the consumption of a 'western diet' which consists of to many high sugar, processed foods or animal products and not enough fruit or veg.
Smoothies and slowing down the aging process.
Every cell in our body has a lifespan and when it dies it gets replaced with a new cell. Over the course of the next 7 years every cell in your body will regenerate. The cell replacement process is fascinating but also imperfect as the new cells contain small errors and this is what causes us to age. The aging process becomes accelerated by the amounts of free radicals that we consume on a daily basis and thing like smoking,, drinking and eating meat and processed food increases the errors in the newly developed cells hence aging us quicker and increasing chances of disease. Drinking freshly made fruit, veg and wholefood smoothies will slow down the aging process, limit imperfections in new cells and hence give us a longer healthier life!!
The importance of drinking your food!!
In today's busy world whether we are pushed for a tight work deadline we do not take the time to prepare healthy meals or even properly chew what we eat!! Doing this make extra work for our digestive system as it attempts to extract nutrients from poorly extracted chewed food. Over time the the weekend stomach acids as a result of age cannot break down foods enough to utilize the nutrition inside. Overtime with our body daily to absorb nutrients day after day we become weaker and weaker and more vulnerable for disease.Even when we eat healthy,our digestive system has a hard time accessing the vitamins,minerals and phytonutrients found in the good food we eat. This is where smoothies come into play!!! When fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts are broken down it makes it much easier for our body to extract the nutrients and absorb the goodness into our body!!.
