Getting more healthy nutrition and digestive health from your smoothie
The frozen banana acts as a source of coolness so you don’t have to add ice cubes that water down your drink. Coolness also helps keep your smoothie tasting great for a longer period of time. Drinking the smoothie slowly, by letting it linger in your mouth and swishing it around a little bit, gives the digestive enzymes in your mouth an opportunity to begin carbohydrate digestion and prepares it for better nutrition absorption in the small intestine.
A good constipation guideline is 1-3 poops per day. Easy in , easy out as they say. Anything less than this and you are at risk for low energy, cancer, toxic back up in your body. Healthy digestion and bowel movement are key to living well!
