It’s crazy to think that it’s almost mid February!! Spring break is only a month away and with spring break usually comes beaches and warmer weather (thank goodness)!! As you know, I love juicing as my go-to for a quick slim down. Plus it makes you feel absolutely WONDERFUL both inside and out! I know most of us are typically focused on the vanity of health but there really is no replacement for feeling good internally!
This Beach Babe Juice aids in weight loss while acting as a detoxifier and appetite suppressant when drunk first thing in the morning.
Here is a breakdown of nutrients and benefits of the Beach Babe juice.
The carrots provide antioxidants and vitamin A which helps the liver to cleanse toxins out of the body. Carrots also support the skin and help to create that beautiful GLOW.
The citrus in this juice provides the body with hesperidin and diosmin which are bioflavinoids found in citrus fruits like lemons, limes and oranges. These bioflavinoids support:
- fat metabolism
- healthy cholesterol levels
- active metabolic function
- healthy veins (great for bulging veins and varicose veins!!)
- immune system function
This juice also contains blackberries and raspberries which are bursting with skin clearing antioxidants. They’re also jam packed with polyphenol antioxidants, according to Dr. Perricone. Polyphenols fight free radicals and regulate skin’s blood flow, giving it rosiness and a youthful glow. Berries are also rich in antioxidants and anthocyanins which are associated with a lower risk of certain cancers, urinary tract health, memory function, and healthy aging. They also contain vitamin C which supports the immune system. When I have berries that have been in the fridge too long, I always throw them in my juice recipes, they have amazing health and anti-aging benefits!
Romaine lettuce is full of vitamin C, vitamin K, and potassium and is also low in calories. It is an extremely alkaline food which results in faster cleansing in the body.
Cucumber is rich in B vitamins, water, electrolytes, silicon and sulfur to support hydration, liver, kidney, skin, and immune system health.
