Green juice has amazing benefits.  It has an alkalizing effect on the body, it neutralises toxins and at the same time immediately supplies a transfusion of absorbable chlorophyll-rich phytonutrients to the cells and bloodstream.  Essentially the super concentrated nutrients, nourish to the body and is packed with enzymes, vitamins, minerals and amino acids.  

Green juice has far reaching effects on our retreats and greatly assists the detoxification process but should really be included in our day to day lives.  

Juicing the liquid out of raw fruits and vegetables delivers more nutrients than you can possibly consume by eating the produce.  It doesn't mean you shouldn't eat the plant, you should always add more greens to your diet, but the juice will detoxify you and give your digestive system a rest while giving your body dense nutrients.  








How to prepare the juice

Chop everything and pass through your juicer.  I like to leave some of the zest on the lemon to give it a zing and for it not to be too sweet.  Use about a quarter of an apple for each person.  Drink as often as you can and you will physically see the benefits through your eyes, your skin and your hair.
