They contain ingredients that are easy to find, loaded with great health benefits, combined for great taste, and they are perfect for weight-loss!
The Ingredients and Their Benefits
Kale has one of the best nutrients among the greens. It is low in calories, high in vitamins and a great source of antioxidant. It has also been said that Kale is a super green with various health benefits. With its high nutritional value, it helps lower blood glucose level for people with diabetes, reduces risk of cardiovascular diseases and the high fiber helps prevent constipation, promoting healthy digestive tract.
Spinach is another super green with similar health benefits as Kale. It is low in calories and high in nutrients.
Lemon is a great source of Vitamin C that helps strengthen our immune system. It also contains potassium, magnesium and copper. Lemon also helps in digestion and detoxification that will keep our body, skin and digestive tract healthy. Drinking lemon water alone also keeps us refresh, hydrated and glowy!

Cold Press Slow Juicer
While I was researching on juicers, I came across cold press that is said to retain the benefits of the fruits and vegetables that we juice. Cold press uses a technology that literally press the ingredients to extract just the juice. I love it because I find it really difficult to eat a whole lot of vegetables even though I know how valuable they are to our health. Juicing it with fruits that I like makes it so easy for me to consume. What’s best is that they are really good for me!
I personally use Hurom Slow Juicer and love how smooth the juices are. There are 2 strainers. Use the fine one if you would like your drink really smooth. For greens, I normally use the coarse one so my juice still retains some of the fibers.
If you do not have a slow juicer yet and would like to have one, check it out here at Amazon.
