Those of you out there who are suffering or at least, experiencing any form of osteoporosis or osteopenia, listen up!! Green Smoothies may be just the thing you need! If you follow me in any way, you can easily guess that I’m a firm believer in Victoria Boutenko’s green smoothie movement (for further info, you can check out her website at www.rawfamily.com). Since I first found out about her several years ago, I’ve been drinking them almost daily. In addition, my website discusses them and I’ve also written a fact sheet on them, “Thirty Reasons to Drink Green Smoothies“. In that document, I mention that green smoothies are bone builders and today I’m emphasizing this again!! Before you start taking toxic medications to help strengthen bone, please check out the web to see what others are doing to deal with osteoporosis.
This lovely senior normalized her bone density by drinking 2 quarts (U.S. measure) of smoothie per day! A year after she started supplementing her diet with green smoothies, her bone density test showed normal!!! You are welcome to download my fact sheet, “Thirty Reasons to Drink Green Smoothies” from my website.
Green Smoothies are also Great for Young Athletes
I also have written an article in the Aurora Youth Soccer Club‘s May edition of their magazine, Blades of Grass. In this article I discuss how green smoothies are perfect for your young athlete or soccer player in both prep for a soccer workout and also for recovery. You’re welcome to download the magazine here.
And how about you? What is your experience with green smoothies? Is it helping your bone density? What about youngsters in your family or extended family? How do they help them in sports or school? I’d love to hear from you and don’t forget to leave a link back to your own blog too, if you have one, via the commentluv feature here on the site.
Sincerely in health,
Until next blog,
