The USDA's food guide pyramid recommends that we eat 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables for optimum health, and many longevity experts believe that we need even more. In spite of this, however, only 7% of us eat even six servings. This has led to an epidemic of digestive problems, obesity and chronic fatigue syndrome. Green smoothie recipes are one of the best ways to solve this problem and reverse the effects.

A good green smoothie recipe contains about 40% fresh leafy greens and 60% raw fruit. The greens contain plenty of fiber, which keeps the colon clean, helps the body rid itself of toxins, and slows the absorption of the fruit sugar in the green smoothie recipe. These smoothie recipes are also high in chlorophyll, which stimulates the immune system, revitalizes the body, and is excellent for cardiovascular health. In addition, green smoothie recipes are very nutrient dense. They are rich in calcium, magnesium, and a wide variety of antioxidants and phytochemicals.

The benefits of drinking green smoothie recipes on a regular basis are numerous. These smoothie recipes provide energy, help to eliminate unhealthy cravings, improve digestion, and are low in fat and calories. All of these things make a green smoothie recipe the perfect way to lose weight. Not only that, but these smoothie recipes taste great-- so you won't have a problem drinking a lot of them.
