Juicing is a great way to consume nutrients and incorporate fruits and vegetables into your diet. Depending on the ingredients used, the juice will be rich in various vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytochemicals; however, remember to choose more vegetables than fruit, as vegetables are lower in calories and sugar. The juice below is mildly sweet and packed with nutrients.

As with any detoxification process, the goal is to choose foods that protect, maintain, and renew the body for optimal health. Foods that contain phytochemicals boost this process. Both kale and kiwifruit contain lutein, which is an antioxidant that protects the eyes from direct sunlight. It also reduces the risk of macular degeneration, which is the most common cause of eye sight loss in elderly people. Dandelion greens also contain phytochemicals that have the ability to help with liver detoxification, improve the flow of bile, and act as a natural diuretic to flush out toxins.

Dandelion greens are rich in choline, an essential nutrient related to the B-complex vitamins, which also works as a detox to help stimulate a healthy liver. In addition, choline is also associated with improved attention, learning, and memory.

The Sweet Greens Detox Juice is loaded with chlorophyll, which contributes to the green pigmentation in plants. Chlorophyll is an amazing nutrient that creates an anti-inflammatory effect in the body, which helps to reduce pain and inflammation. And this juice is loaded with it!

Kale is rich in vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin A, folate, and calcium. These nutrients play different roles including aiding with eye health, bone strength, wound healing, and blood circulation. By consuming kale raw in this juice, it avoids the loss of vitamin content that would occur through cooking.

Vitamin C is responsible for forming collagen, which in turn maintains healthy and youthful skin.  One large kiwi provides enough vitamin C to meet daily requirements for healthy adults. The green apples also add to the high vitamin C content of this tasty drink.  

In short, the combination of these ingredients make for a healthy, must-have drink. Health and wellness is our passion and we strive to promote it through education, lived experiences, motivation, and support.
