2. Keeps you Hydrated
A lot of people are severely dehydrated, especially during winter. Including smoothies in your diet ensures that you consume an additional amount of water in your diet. This will also ensure that you are not dehydrated in the summer.
3. Helps Digestion
Digestive disorders are a common problem faced by a lot of people. An unhealthy diet and an inactive lifestyle are some of the reasons for a digestive disorder. Smoothies, especially the green ones, are loaded with fibers that improve digestion and provide relief from some of the common digestive disorders.
