So what is all the fuss about green juice and what exactly is in one?
Basically, green juice is loaded with leafy and green vegetables (amongst other fruit and veg) with high levels of antioxidants, essential vitamins and nutrients.
When we remove the insoluble fibre from the produce through cold press juicing, we are left with juice that is action packed full of these vitals. Drinking this juice is the fastest method of delivering this goodness to your body (yep, even faster than eating as whole fruit and veg). Green juices are really tasty, quick to make and drink and are such a great way to sneak some extra veggies into your diet.
So what kind of health benefits can we expect from drinking all this goodness?
Everything from assisting our body to detoxify and cleanse itself of nasties to boosting immunity, improving digestion and fighting inflammation.
