Potential Health Benefits of Healthy Juice Smoothie Recipes.

Juices and Smoothies are a great way to incorporate more healthy food types into your daily diet. It’s also an easy way to make significant health gains.

Boosts Your Fruit And Vegetable Intake.

Smoothies and Juices that are made from fresh, or even frozen, produce helps to increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. This helps to provide you an array of essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants.

These nutrients aren’t just part of our daily requirements, they offer so much more. As well as their benefits to natural health we know that nutrients from fruits and vegetables offer anti-inflammatory benefits, help to improve digestion, and lower your risk of developing chronic conditions such as heart disease, osteoporosis and obesity.

In one study1Fruit and Vegetable Intake: Benefits and Progress of Nutrition Education Interventions- Narrative Review Article entitled “Fruit and Vegetable Intake” the World Health Organization (WHO) states that adults should eat at least 5 servings (equivalent to around 400 grams) of fruits and vegetables every day. The reality is that most people do not.

So if you want to add additional fruit and vegetables to your diet, as recommended by WHO, then juices and smoothies are a delicious way to do it. Especially as each smoothie provide at least two, sometime three of your five recommended daily servings.

Healthy Juice Smoothie Recipes support Increased Fiber Intake.

Fiber is an important nutrient because it aids our digestion and prevents constipation. It does this by promoting the growth of good bacteria in your digestive tract.

Researchers discovered that a healthy amount of the good bacteria in our gut can help reduce inflammation, promotes healthy immune function, and can even benefit our mental health. Fiber intake is also linked to reducing the risk of developing chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

By adding the right kinds of ingredients, juices and smoothies are an excellent way to boost your natural daily fiber intake.

Some of the most fiber-rich foods are fabulous and much used smoothie and whole food juice ingredients. Fiber rich foods include almost all fruits and vegetables plus whole grains (such as barley and oats), nuts, seeds, and legumes.
