The bok choy is one of the staple vegetables of Asian cuisine. These thin, bell-shaped items don't possess a strong taste in and of themselves, being 95% water, and are porous enough to absorb the flavour created in the fry pan. Little wonder, then, that they are found in many meals from this area of the world.
But the bok choy is more than just fodder for the fry pan. This humble vegetable is also one of the more potent additions to your cold pressed juice cleanse. These vegetables are rich in a number of key vitamins that have direct benefits for your health, including both Vitamin A, and Vitamin K.
Vitamin A has been linked to improvements and maintenance of your vision. It also has some direct impacts upon your immune system, keeping you operating at a good, and healthy, clip. Vitamin K, meanwhile, plays an essential role in blood clotting, and has also been linked to your cardiovascular health.
A serving of bok choy also provides your body with over 50% RDI of one of its most important elements, vitamin C. This vitamin bolsters your level of resistance to illnesses, and has been linked to improved eyesight, along with avoiding the effects of scurvy.
Perhaps best of all, the mild taste of the bok choy will not overpower the tastier elements of your cold pressed juice. It perhaps isn't the most celebrated member of the juicing scene, but bok choy provides both a number of important vitamins, and some considerable benefits for your cold pressed juice cleanse journey. Give them a shot!
