A Healthy Detox Juice

Hello hello, hope you are all well. Today I have a post all about one of my favourite juicing concoctions. This is the perfect detox juice! It tastes really yummy, if full of vitamins and nutrients, leaves you feeling satisfied and full of energy! 
Want to know why? Read on!
Whats in it?
   1 Beetroot
1 Orange
1 Carrot
1 Cucumber
1 Cup of Spinach
2 stalks of Kale
5-6 stalks of Celery 

Why is it a perfect detox juice?
So almost every fresh juice you have is going to give your body a detox. This is because you are supplying your body with the vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are coming from the fruits and vegetables without the need to break it down to digest it to use it. Your giving your digestive system a break, which allows the juice to flush out toxins in your body easier and quicker, leaving you feeling 'lighter' and more energised. This type of juice is especially great for after you've had a big night out, or eaten too much, or had a lot of sugar as the vegetables help to detoxify those chemicals from your body quickly. 
What are the health benefits?
 Beetroot: contains iron, vitamin C, calcium, sulfar and potassium this vegetable is anti-infamatory, high in minerals and strengthens the liver. 
Orange: we all know this one, full of vitamin C oranges are the perfect fruit to ward of that common cold! 
Carrot: carrots are full of vitamin A which is the key ingredient to eyesight. It is also full of beta-carotene which is helpful in boosting your immune system. 
Cucumber: a great source of vitamins A, C and K cucumber juice is anti-ageing, great for your complexion and improves hair and nail strength.
Spinach: is one of only a few veggies that are high in vitamin E. It is also high in protein! This is great for anti-inflammatory, promotes healing and is good for your complexion.
Kale: full of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Calcium and Iron this veggie helps to reduce the risk of cancer, benefits your eyesight and is full of antioxidants.  
Celery: contains B1, B6 and fibre helping to lower blood pressure, protect the cardiovascular system and prevent migraines.
