In order to function properly and be at its best, the brain needs proper nutrition just like the rest of the body. The brain is an organ just like the heart, the liver or the skin. The brain is also, the most important organ, because nothing in the body or mind works if the brain does not work! The term “brain food” is not a joke. I believe it must refer specifically to Green Smoothies!

Hormones play a large role in brain function. Balanced hormones keep you feeling good and looking good. Green Smoothies can help to balance those hormones. It is not uncommon for people to report that they feel an elevation in their mood the very first time they try a Green Smoothie!

Green Smoothies provide concentrated levels of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and micronutrients that have unbelievable effects on mental alertness, concentration and that stressed out feeling. Some have even reported that they no longer need prescription medication for depression, anxiety and nervousness. How cool is that! Of course, never stop taking prescribed medication without the consent of your medical professional!

Packaged and processed foods are the brain’s number 1 enemies. The fillers and chemicals found in these products cloud the brain, affect the thought process and just generally make us feel crummy! Green Smoothies will detox the brain, just like they do the body, and we will be feeling better in no time at all!

Since I began my journey in Green Smoothies, I know that I am almost always cheerful and outgoing, and I try to make the best out of bad situations. I can remember when I was not like that, and I don’t ever want to go back there! I like the new me, and to keep the new me, all I have to do is drink delicious and nutritious Green Smoothies. How easy is that?
