It has been said that our skin is the “window” to what is happening inside our body. This simply means that whatever is taking place internally is reflected on the skin.

Green smoothies have become increasingly popular through the last few years on account of wide agreement over their amazing health benefits. The promise of the “green drink” to offer clearer and smoother skin, shinier and healthier hair, enhanced energy levels and improved overall health have continued to lure millions of people across the globe to revere these beverages – even the ones that hate eating fruits and vegetables! Some smoothies even claim to reduce acne, encourage faster growth of hairs and nails, better digestion, and impressive weight loss effects.

Regular consumption of green smoothies is thought to provide various profound effects to the body. Referred by some as “green monster”, green smoothies are simply a wonderful way of getting lots of health nutrients in a single beverage. There is actually no rule or perfect recipe on how to make green smoothies. It all actually depends on your preferences and wants – but the name came around because they include a good amount of greens such as wheatgrass and kale – together with a blend of other highly regarded “superfood” ingredients.

Some of the best ingredients which you can use in making green smoothies include flaxseeds, berries, chia seeds, kale, wheatgrass, cacao, green tea, almond milk, coconut, stevia, raw honey, maca powder, agave and flavorings like orange extract, vanilla extract and molasses.

We’ve found an amazing recipe that uses a wonderful ingredient that would definitely help in enhancing the health effects you are expecting: Kefir. Research shows that kefir works by restoring the activities of the healthy bacteria in your gut. Kefir contains an ample amount of B vitamins, enzymes and other essential nutrients which are thought to be beneficial to the digestive system of the body. By promoting gut and digestive health, glowing and rejuvenating skin is achieved.

Compared to yogurt, kefir contains higher amount of probiotics and some good yeasts. These yeasts play vital role in balancing out bad and harmful yeasts along the digestive tract as well as in getting rid of parasites. Kefir is also a good source of lipids, proteins, sugar, folic acid, Vitamin K, Vitamin B1 and B12, biotin, phosphorus, calcium and magnesium.

    Kefir comes from The North Caucasus. (Believed to stem from an un-independant country called Adyghey).It is a Circassian drink. Circassians are not Eastern Europeans, nor are they Russians. They have their own ancient culture.(Nothing against the Russians) 🙂 When handling Kefir, don’tbuse any metal cutlery with it. It somehow ruins its beneficial properties. Always use other materials. Wooden, glass, plastic, etc. But not metal.
