Antioxidant Power-Up Juice

This is a great juice to switch things up a bit and try absolutely new flavors–and we promise your juice isn’t going to taste like soup. Nutritionally, red cabbage and green cabbage have glucosinolates in common; these have been researched for their potential cancer-prevention benefits. But red cabbage specifically also contains anthocyanin polyphenols, due to its rich red color, representing its high antioxidant concentration.

Beets are also a great antioxidant pick, and they’ve been studied for their ability to aid the delivery of oxygen to the bloodstream, making beet juice a good choice as a pre-workout juice, or a post-workout recovery drink.

I’ve paired red cabbage, beet and orange with a bit of rosemary, which has a long list of health benefits. This herb may benefit the liver by increasing and supporting phase 2 detoxification, and it’s been researched for its brain benefits, specifically memory.

Altogether, this is a terrific juice that’s high in antioxidant value and tastes delicious. Not a fan of rosemary? Simply leave it out.
