Does blending raw vegetables/making green smoothies make veg more bioavailable?

I'm not a fan of smoothies but i would have one every now & then for nutritions sake, i don't eat a lot of salad but i do eat veggies...just not enough in my opinion. On the raw side of things i don't eat a lot at all apart from a bit of homemade sauerkraut. So would it be a nice little hack to blend raw veg smoothies couple of times a week to kill two birds with one stone?

Thanks Eric,, i meant just breaking the veg down rather than juicing my friend.

Thanks Travis, looks like i'll be looking for some recipes then, i hear that it's wise to use raw greens in moderation due to oxalic acid inhibiting calcium absorption...Damn this could get complicated! haha

Yes, it would. Pre-masticating/digesting something is going to increase bioavailability.

I tried pure juicing and green leaves gave very little juice at all. I went back to chewing my salads. :)
