Famous in Japan, popularized by Hollywood stars, green juices have flooded our kitchens! And so much the better, because these drinks are great for your health. So, shall we drink juice?
Green juice, kesako?
It is a mixture of raw and fresh vegetables (spinach, cucumber, kale, celery, broccoli…) that we prefer to choose organic, from which we will extract the juice. Then we get a concentrate of vitamins, minerals and trace elements that nourish our body. Green juices made with a juicer or centrifuge allow you to consume large amounts of vegetables without realizing it, without irritating or tiring the body.
Benefits of green juices
Green juices are not only very tasty, but also have many nutritional properties. In general, fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins A, C and E, as well as trace elements such as iron, zinc, manganese, calcium, magnesium, minerals that our body needs. By drinking green juices, we strengthen bone tissue and stimulate immune defenses, while having a preventive effect on cardiovascular disease and the formation of bad cholesterol.
In addition, green vegetables are an excellent source of chlorophyll, which is well known for its mood, health, and energy benefits. Drinking green juices also helps improve digestion due to the high amount of fiber found in vegetables. They also have a detoxifying effect, as they help eliminate toxins and waste products without tiring the liver and kidneys.
