The greatest benefit of drinking green smoothies is the increased absorption of important nutrients. All plants cells are surrounded by a cell wall that must be broken open to release the nutrients inside.

As a result, most of the valuable nutrients contained within these cells never enter our bloodstream.

Blending raw, leafy greens guarantee a higher percentage of nutrients absorbed into your bloodstream.

By just chewing your food you absorb about 15 – 25% of the nutrients, but blending makes your body able to absorb up to 95%!
