Re: Anyone use green smoothies or supplements to expedite bone healing

I doubted the claims by the green smoothie fanatics on line (some replace two out of three meals with these veggie smoothies!) but in all fairness I was drinking about 24 ounces daily and felt amazing. Great energy, better sleep, levelled mood and some decent weight loss. I did know that spinach is not recommended due to the fact it slows bone mending but I did not know it leads to blood clotting - thanks for the info and I am glad you recovered from a blood clot. I have no doubt eating 7 to 9 servings of greens would do the trick vs smoothies but I never manage to choke down that much in solid form whereas I love these smoothies.
