Green Elixir – Recipe of the Week

This juice is very high in electrolytes such as magnesium, calcium and potassium so it is great after exercise. This juice is also high in iron, chlorophyll, vitamin c, folic acid, beta-carotenes and much more. Kale has SO many health benefits, one being this leafy green is high in lutein and zeaxanthin which has been shown to protect the eyes against age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

Chlorophyll is associated with an increase in detoxification and elimination. It can help with body odour and halitosis during a detox.
