Health Benefits from Juice Ingredients
Beets get their beautiful red color from the plant compound betanin. This may have antioxidant benefits to fight free radicals and protect cells from damage. Beets are also high in folate, which is essential for women in healthy pregnancy.
Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is crucial for the formation of collagen, which is essential for skin health. Vitamin C also helps increase iron absorption in the body, which in turn, may decrease the risk of anemia.
This leafy green veggie is amazing in juice recipes because it is water-dense and contains a variety of vitamins and minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K and folate!
Apples are an incredible source of prebiotic fiber. This type of fiber is what your “good” microbes in your gut feed on and thrive! Fiber may also help lower cholesterol and decrease high blood pressure, which is important for preventing diseases such as cardiovascular disease.
