A healthy berry smoothy can help cleanse your body and in the meantime give you access to deliciousness and refreshment. In this post, I will share with you healthy mixed berry smoothy recipes that are easy to make.
Berries are arguably one of the most important assets in our day to day lives than you think. That is because they can help fight or manage some of the most deadly diseases.
But before we get into the types of berry smoothy recipes, let’s take a look at the importance of berries.
Why Are Berries Important To Your Health?
Berries are not just beautiful, smell good and have a good sweet taste, they also have health benefits that I think you might not know.
#1 They May Help You Manage Diabetes
As you may already know, processed sugar can cause diabetes. That is because sugar is directly responsible for obesity which then causes diabetes.
Berries, on the other hand, can help you manage that. That is because berries do not contain a lot of sugar and the sugar found within them is natural sugar. This means that it is the right kind of sugar your body needs.
Although you can still eat berries by including them in other foods like blueberry pie or muffin, the nutritional boost is even better when they are eaten raw or in the form of a smoothie.
#2 They Can Boost Your Heart Health
Berries are also known to help boost your heart health. This is because berries such as Raspberries are rich in heart-healthy fiber.
They are rich in vitamin C and also known to be very low in fat. Since they are low in fat and have high levels of polyphenols, this means that they can easily reduce the risk of having heart disease
So having a diet rich with vegetables, and fruits such as berries can help you reduce the chances of having a heart attack.
#3 Berries Can Help You Fight Cancer
Like other deadly diseases, berries can help you fight cancer. This is because raspberries and blueberries can lead to a more effective cancer prevention strategy.
Now you may be wondering why is this so? Well, just like other colorful fruits, berries such as blueberries contain a compound called flavonoid compound.
This compound and other compounds found in berries can help you reduce colon cancer. That is why cancer prevention diets always strongly emphasize vegetables and fruits.
#4 Berries Can Help You Lose Weight
For those of you who really want to lose weight, adding berries to your diet will help you speed up the process. I’ve seen this happen to my mom.
She was using one of her diet plans as a way to lose some weight so that she can go to my brother’s wedding in a few weeks. The diet wasn’t effective until she added some berries smoothies to her diet.
Although she was skeptical at first, as time went on, the results she got were amazing. Then I took note of that and I started investigating a lot more about berries.
Then I found that berries contain fiber and liquid content which then promotes fullness. This means that you will then eat fewer and fewer calories.
You can experiment with berries but the one effective and easy to do is by making berry smoothies. But I will give you the strategy in a second!
#5 They Can Help Sharpen Your Mentality
Nobody likes to have a lazy mind. In fact, we all want to be geniuses like Einstein and be able to solve complex equations. This means that anything that promises the ability to be genius is worth trying out.
Okay, berries will not turn you into a genius (Sorry, that is just genetic) but it can help you experience less mental decline compared to your peers.
This means that you will have a sharper mind compared to your peers as time goes on. This is because of the flavonoid compounds I mentioned earlier.
