WHY HAVE A SMOOTHIE?
Everything we eat must be broken down into a liquid-soluble form by a number of chemical and mechanical processes that take place.
Our body reduces these solid foods to simple compounds so that they can pass through the small intestinal wall into the bloodstream, to be sent all around the body and absorbed where needed.
The Smoothie, in itself, is very simple to digest. It contains an abundance of nutrients in liquid-soluble form, together with all the enzymes necessary for digestion and other necessary functions. Happily, this low workload for the digestive system also creates another positive outcome: We can now assimilate more of what we are eating --- or, with the Smoothie, what we are drinking.
The diminished burden on the digestive system frees up not only energy but also ENZYMES, which can be utilized to heal the body. This is what puts the body into an energised and satisfied, happy and delightful state.
