You have probably heard of the statement that ‘you are what you eat.’ But, did you know that the greener your food, the better your health will be? Well, while most people have realized the great health benefits of veggies, most are yet to realize that there is a more efficient way to ingest the same nutrients while maximizing the benefits.

Bio-hackers, who are technically people who use science and technology to make their bodies better, realized that when they add greens to their smoothies, they get the best out of them. Some of the ready benefits of green smoothies include enhanced nutrient absorption, better energy, digestion, and a more efficient immune system.

Additionally, since leafy greens contain rich minerals from calcium to vitamins K, A, and C; they can also improve your bones and heart health. Essentially, when the greens are in liquid form, they are more easily absorbed into our bodies, even through the tissues and bones. Other benefits of greens include helping you to get that glow from the antioxidants, reduce unhealthy cravings, and when you love your smoothies, you will also find that you also love other healthy habits.

How to bio-hack your green smoothies

However, just adding greens to your smoothies does not make them better as, while they may look good, there is a need to ensure that it also improves your health and well-being. By bio-hacking, you can make your smoothies even better and ensure that you maximize their health benefits for you.

Here are some expert bio-hacking tips on how you can upgrade your green smoothies and get the most out of them.

  1. Consider a protein. While veggies and fruit are definitely nutritious, you can get better outcomes by adding protein that will stabilize your energy and add that thick texture to the drink.
  2. Choose gut-friendly options. While water is great for mixing, why not consider collagen? Finding a source for collagen is beneficial as it restores gut health while also improving your immune system.
  3. Always add fat! Never shy away from fats as they are important in sustaining energy and ensuring that you don’t get hungry and start indulging in other foods. A little avocado, coconut, or nut butter can make your smoothie taste great and facilitate weight loss.
