A favourite with kids and adultsThis one is light on the veg. We slow press lemon and apple, along with invigorating fresh mint, to eek out all their natural goodness.
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, great for our immune system and it aids iron absorption. This can help with iron deficiency associated with anemia, which happens when our red blood cell count is low - these are the ones that carry oxygen around our body.
A bioactive plant compound called D-limonene contained within lemon can help to reduce our oxidative stress, and promotes heart health.
The antioxidant effect of vitamin C and the natural compounds limonoids and quercetin in the lemon, support tissue repair and collagen synthesis.
Apples contain pectin, which acts as a prebiotic to promote good bacteria, and maintain a healthy gut. Apples possess anti-inflammatory polyphenols. The potassium content in apples also goes a long way to maintain a healthy heart.
Studies have even suggested that the juice from apples can help preserve neurotransmitters in the brain involved with memory.
Mentha piperita, or mint leaf to you and me, adds a wonderfully fresh note, providing its own natural health benefits - a good source of vitamin A critical for eye health, and a potent source of antioxidants. Mint is also known to relax muscles in the digestive tract and may help relieve types of indigestion.
Add a naturally refreshing zest to your day!
