Are Green Drinks Good For You? Benefits Of Leafy Greens Juice

Are green drinks good for you? Well, I hate to break it to ya, but NOT all of ‘em.

The thing is, some green drinks are imposters of the REAL green juice and have more in common with sugary bottled juice! UH OH! So, how can you know which is which and WHAT to drink?

It’s easy as 1… 2… 3…

1. Choose ORGANIC (always, I mean it!)

2. Follow the 80/20 rule: 80% veggies, 20% fruits (as a blend)

3. Drink it on an EMPTY stomach

Now let’s take a closer look at what green drinks are all about!

WHY Drink Green Drinks?

Why love green drink? Oh, let me count the ways…

The health benefits of green drinks include:

  • Green veggie juice gives you a massive quantity of minerals, vitamins and other plant-based nutrients
  • The abundance of nutrients in juice provides your body with a plethora of GOOD bacteria
  • Allows you to get your daily intake of fruits and veggies in ONE glass of juice!
  • Gives you an instant energy boost within moments of drinking it
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Provides a variety of nutrients that are easily absorbed into your body
  • Gives your body a chance to restore and rejuvenate itself
  • Helps optimize your body’s pH levels (if your body is too acidic, it negatively affects your overall health)

 

When To Drink Green Juice

Of course you can sip on the green goodness ALL DAY LONG – but for maximum nutrient absorption, it’s best to drink green juice on an empty stomach and WITHOUT food.

Follow these 3 tips as your daily guide to green drinks:

1. Drink for Breakfast: make it your first “meal” of the day!

2. Do it Solo: wait at least 45 minutes before eating any solid food to allow the green juice to absorb into your system.

3. Choose ORGANIC ingredients: otherwise you are drinking pesticides and chemicals – Yikes!

Now it’s time to make some green greatness! Check out these mouthwatering recipes below:

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
