If you haven’t tried green juices made with pineapple, you don’t know what your missing! Green juices can be so delicious with just the right amount of fruit. This one comes packed with nutrition! Here is a summary of what you get:

Kale is low in calories and has zero fat. It’s full of nutrients, vitamins, folate and magnesium, important stuff the body needs! Kale has iron too. Actually, for the same amount of calories, kale has more iron than beef but doesn’t hurt your heart with heart clogging cholesterol. Kale is full of vitamin K which is needed for good bone health and healthy blood clotting. Kale is also filled with powerful antioxidants such as carotenoids and flavonoids that can protect our skin and from various cancers.

Spinach is good for our eyes. It has a rich source of beta carotene, lutein and xanthene. AMD, or age related macular degeneration is due to a lack of lutein and xanthene which form a central part of the retina in our eyes so its important to eat foods with these key eye nutrients.

Pineapples are loaded with immunity boosting vitamin C and are also good for the eyes. They are serious inflammation fighters and unlike many other fruits and veggies, pineapples have a significant source of bromelain, an enzyme that breaks down protein and aids digestion.

Ginger fires up important digestive juices and livens up our appetite! It gives a healthy boost to our metabolism and who couldn’t use that? Its been hailed as nature’s farmaceutical in preventing and treating certain types of cancers such as ovarian and breast cancer. Ginger root also contains very potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols. These compounds are believed to be the reason why so many people with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis feel better and experience less pain with  improvements in their mobility.
