Will my Blast lose nutrients if I don't drink it right away?

If I make a Nutriblast and take it to work for lunch, will it lose some of the nutrients; i.e. from not drinking it right away? Thanks much! Dina
Hi Dina, it depends on how long it sits and the temperture you keep it at.

The first thing that gets lost are the antioxidants. As soon as the food is blended with liquid and air, antioxidants go to work to counter the effects of oxidation which happens from the breaking a part of the plant tissues and them mixing with air and liquid. So you lose a lot of the antioxidant benefits of the foods.

The enzymes that are naturally existing beging breaking dowm the food you blended even further and after about 15 minutes the blast color and texture will change. It will not be as pleasant to drink.

The minerals are not effected however some Vitamins like Vitamin C may begin losing some potency.

It is best to drink as soon as you make the blast. Thee great thing about the NutriBullet is that it is very portable. You can easily take it to work to make blast. And it is inexpensive enough to buy an extra one and just keep it at work.

I hope this helps,

Healthy wishes

Thank you, Wally. Guess I will be purchasing another NB :-) BTW, your story is so inspiring! My husband has diabetes and is carrying an excess 50-60 pounds. I just went thru the IIN program to become a certified health coach. I have tried everything I know how to help him, but he does not seem to be able to drop the weight. We eat primarily a plant-based diet, some seafood; mainly no gluten or dairy. I am hoping that the NB will help keep things a bit more structured for him so that he can release this weight.
