Should I spit in my smoothies?

I have a demanding job and go to school full time. I was thinking of investing in a vitamix so I could toss in a bunch of greens, frozen meat(liver), a little acid, milk, etc and so as to cut down on time but still eat nutrient dense foods. I already do IF with a 4 hour window and I'd like to cut that down to 2 or 1.

Should I spit in my smoothies so as to "pre-digest" them? Would that do much at all?

Do you spit in other food before you eat it?

I wouldn't be doing it for bacteria but to evenly mix salivary enzymes like amylase or bromelain.

I don't think it would do much, aside from making your smoothie kind of... bacteria-y. Saliva has amylase, but nothing to digest protein/fat (as far as I know).

If you drink green smoothies, believe me, you won't have any worries about digestion!

Just swish it around in your mouth a bit before swallowing and you will achieve the desired result.

#1 that's kind of disgusting. If you really believe bacteria is going to help, than try yogurt or kefir

#2 you would have to put it in a warm area for a few days for it to make a difference at all

#3 if you digest it fine, then why would you need bacteria beyond what you body uses?
