A basic google search will lay out a dozen or so foods that have been deemed ‘superfood’. Everything from chia seeds to cranberry juice, it seems, has been described as being a cure-all. Most of the time, hyperbole reigns in the online world. But if a food is justified in making these lofty claims, kale would be a tough candidate to deny. It has a firm place in your cold pressed juice cleanse.
Plainly put, leafy green vegetables possess more nutrition per calorie than any other kind of vegetable. They are rich in vitamins A, C, E, K, and several B vitamins, along with minerals such as potassium, iron, magnesium, and calcium. They are strongly antioxidizing, and do all of this without providing high amounts of sugar.
Antioxidents are vital to our health, because they clear up free radicals in our bodies. When we process oxygen, the process produces free radicals, which steal electrons. This process can cause damage to cell membranes.
Greens are one of the most important elements in our fight against heart disease and diabetes. A diet that includes ample green vegetables, at a rate of only one serving per day, can lower your risk of heart disease by an estimated 11%.
However, like so much of our diet, not everyone is willing or able to build themselves a spinach, broccoli, or kale salad each day. We are leading busy lives, and not everyone is capable of planning for such things. That is why Karmic Juices offers our vaunted Green juice, to encourage our clients to get all the greens they need to supercharge their bodies.
