I was not sure where to post this as there is no area just for alternative or natural health.
Greens are good for survival and can be grown anywhere but this is not the point. I want to educate on the importance of greens in one's diet.
Especially on brain health, heart health and overall physical health and mental energy. Make sure you buy local or grow your own as the government is
trying to irradiate greens.
Victoria Boutenko is the founder of the green smoothie revolution, who wrote the book 'Green for life'. She found a way to get people to eat their
greens and have it taste delicious too.

Just some Health benefits of green smoothies:
The health benefits of green smoothies are:
1. According to Vitoria Boutenko in her book, 12 Steps to Raw Foods, "when blended well, most of the cell walls in the greens and fruits are
ruptured, making the valuable nutrients easy for the body to assimilate. Green smoothies literally start to get absorbed in your mouth."
2. They are full of fiber which is very important for good colon ecology and elimination of waste.
3. They are chlorophyll rich. Chlorophyll is the blood of the plant and it is the molecule that most closely resembles human blood. It purifies our
blood. It fights bad breath and bad body odor. It is an immune enhancer. It can help to correct anemia. It will rejuvenate your body.
4. They give you much more than the minimal requirements of fruits and veggies recommended by the American Cancer Society.
5. They are high in antioxidants and phytochemicals.
6. They will help to bring down the acidity in your pH and make you more alkaline. Cancer does not grow in an alkaline body. In fact, most disease
grows in an acid environment.
