We all know the benefits of drinking green juices and as January 26th is Green Juice Day, let’s take a look at how we can enjoy a variety of juices and ultimately improve our health by drinking this powerful elixir…
Green juices have been so beneficial for good health because they are packed with antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals. Naturally high in fiber, green vegetables are an ideal food as they can improve digestive health problems, allowing for easier and more regular bowel movements. Juicing also has many health benefits and is a faster and more efficient means of absorbing immune boosting nutrients that are so readily found in whole fruits and vegetables.
