Our Leafy Green juice is an integral part of every Karmic cold pressed juice cleanse in Melbourne, and is the primary health and nutrition provider for those who opt for our deep Zen cleanses. Because Leafy Green is so important to our juice cleanses and your health, we thought we would run through each of the natural ingredients and some of their many benefits.
Even amongst superfoods, kale is seen as a powerhouse of nutrition and we thought it essential to include in each pressed juice cleanse. First gaining popularity amongst Ancient Romans, the leafy green has appeared in diets ever since, but it is only recently that the full health benefits have been discovered. Kale is crammed full of goodness, containing high levels of protein, fiber and vitamins A, C and K. The distinctive curly leaves also contain generous servings of essential minerals such as calcium, folate and potassium. Even the less well-known nutrients that colour the vegetable – lutein and zeaxanthin – offer protection from muscular degeneration and cataracts.
Popeye was on to something all those years ago. Not only was spinach great for his muscle development, it also helped him steer clear of a raft of diseases and conditions, from arthritis to heart disease. Low in calories, but high in lots of essential nutrients, spinach also has generous quantities of vitamins A and C, folate and magnesium and is a great addition to a low fructose juice cleanse in Melbourne.
More than just a crunchy, refreshing source of water, cucumber also has some great health benefits. High in vitamin K, fiber and potassium, cucumbers helps keep weight gain in check, alleviates high blood pressure and reduces the risk of other heart conditions, all while promoting detoxification and reducing excess bodily fluid.
Often remarked upon for having fewer calories than it takes to digest, celery is certainly great for shedding kilos, but there is much more to the tasty vegetable than weight loss alone. Fiber, antioxidants and vitamins A, C and K can all be found within the green crunch.
The zesty yellow fruit first earned its health stripes in the 18th century as an effective preventative treatment for scurvy. Scurvy may belong to the annals of maritime history, but the high vitamin C content is still of great benefit today. Lemons help increase iron absorption, boost the immune system, offer antioxidant qualities and guard against asthma, colds and flus. The unmistakable flavour also offers a dynamic addition to the Karmic range of cold press juices in Melbourne.
With all this goodness in one bottle, it is little wonder that each sip takes you a step closer to detox, restoration and great nutrition. We’re sure you’ll enjoy the myriad of benefits and great taste of Leafy Green as part of your next Karmic juice cleanse in Melbourne.
